Author Guidelines

An ERT volume comprises approximately seven contributed articles from HR experts that fall into two broad categories: NEW IDEAS and FEATURES.

The NEW IDEAS section may include cutting-edge or unusual HR-topics that are not explored often; “think pieces” that explore HR trends; and articles that focus on information extrapolated from recent employment-related studies and surveys.

The FEATURES section of the journal provides detailed articles that encompass all HR practice areas, such as attracting, hiring, and retaining employees; preserving the organization’s knowledge base; talent management; managing a multigenerational workforce; increasing employee skills and productivity; training; employee benefits; HR technology; and strategic planning.

A third section of the journal includes four regularly appearing DEPARTMENTS that cover employment law and regulatory updates on both the federal and state level; key court cases; workflow and project-portfolio management; and commonly asked questions about employee relations.

The word count for New Ideas and Features generally ranges from 3,000 to 4,000 words; the word count for Departments ranges from 2,000 to 3,000 words. New Ideas and Features are blind peer reviewed.
