Special issue on HRM in Latin America
Article Type: Call for papers From: Employee Relations, Volume 21, Issue 3.
This is a call for researchers to submit papers for a special issue of Employee Relations on HRM in Latin America (e.g. Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, and related territories). In this issue, we welcome articles (whether empirical, review, or theoretical) on Human Resource Management (HRM), and employment relationships in this region normally associated with this journal (please see journal guidelines for details).
We are particularly interested in studies that make evaluations of the impact of the recent shift left by national governments in the region (i.e. how and in what ways they impact on employment relationships and employee relations), and/or other studies in this field that illustrate comparative, country, state, regional, and sector differences of note, whether for single and/or multiple-member countries.
In addition, we welcome work on any aspect of HRM as it pertains to Latin American countries. Such studies may include (as indicative and not exhaustive examples), any of the entry-to-exit points of HR (recruitment/selection, performance management/appraisal, training/development, pay/reward, exit), and/or contemporary issues in HRM (such as links between HRM and organisational performance, flexibility, commitment, line managers, human capital, and environmental management).
Any researchers with ideas for papers to submit for this special issue, or who have full work(s) within the broad remit (above) are welcome to discuss them with the Guest Editor, Dr Douglas Renwick (at the University of Sheffield). All actual and proposed articles need to be submitted in UK English, and to comply with the journal guidelines before submission, details of which can be accessed at: www.emeraldinsight.com/info/journals/er/notes.jsp
All final papers should be submitted to the Guest Editor at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for all submissions to this call is 30 September 2008.
