Editorial Guidelines for Authors

Employment Relations Today is intended to provide practical information in the area of employer/employee relations for human resources, EEO, and employment-relations managers. Authors must keep this readership in mind. Articles should be informative, analytical, and practical, but not highly technical. We seek material that will offer our readership new insights into, and new approaches to, HR management and employment-relations issues.

Manuscripts are considered for publication with the understanding that they represent original material and are offered without fee to Employment Relations Today.

Articles must not have been published previously and may not simultaneously be submitted elsewhere.

Articles may be submitted electronically as an attached document, preferably using MS Word. Any accompanying artwork or exhibits must be submitted in black and white and suitable for reproduction.

Articles should range from 12 to 25 pages, double-spaced, with a 1-inch margin at left and right and top and bottom of each page.

Authors must provide citations formatted as endnotes (using MS Word's automatic numbering feature) for all studies, surveys, statistics, quotes, and legal cases referenced in the article.

Legal citations should follow the method outlined in the most current edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. All references to other journal articles and books should conform to APA style per the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition, except that none of the references should contain italics, at the request of the publisher, and all should appear at the end of the article, not internally.
