This is reminder for our call for papers for the Special Issue on The Future of Global Work: What is Next for International HRM for the Journal of Word Business.
We invite submissions that cast light on the changes affecting global work and how those changes could, in turn, influence the field of international HRM. We are interested in empirical and theoretical papers that investigate the ever-evolving context of global work, both from the perspective of individuals that engage in global work and from the perspective of organizations that deploy globally dispersed workforces, and those with supply chains heavily dependent on employing people across countries. We seek contributions that push beyond the traditional contours of topics and theories typically associated with IHRM research. We encourage studies that examine issues that are relevant to practitioners and do so while engaging in substantive theoretical work.
In line with JWB's scope and aims, we also welcome phenomenon-based research – studies whose central objective is to examine current phenomena, including those for which may currently be outstripping researchers' ability to investigate them in depth from the standpoint of an existing theory (Doh, 2015). Relatedly, in this Special Issue, we would like to see papers that inspire partnerships between academics and managers as both navigate the turbulent waters of the future of work.
From the standpoint of methodology, the Special Issue is open to all methodological approaches. Methodological fit – and methodological pluralism- are critical to investigating real world phenomena, and so are research designs that account for different stakeholder across levels and contexts. Further, the challenges faced by individuals, businesses, and governments are highly nuanced and differ around the world. To that end, we encourage contributions from a broad range of colleagues from various disciplines and geographic perspectives.
The submission deadline for the Special Issue is September 1, 2023 and you can find the full caller papers attached here and on the JWB website <https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/journal-of-world-business/about/call-for-papers>
