CfP: Research Paradigms in International Human Resource Management

The Special Issue of the German Journal of Human Resource Management (GHRM) aims to clarify accepted research methods in the field of international human resource management (IHRM).

For this Special Issue of the GHRM papers from scholars that illustrate or reflect upon the roles played by research paradigms in IHRM: the type of research questions asked, the role of theory, methods for gathering and analyzing data and other more pragmatic aspects that influence scholars’ professional careers are invited for submission.

Submissions that are conceptual, empirical (quantitative or qualitative,
or both, and if qualitative, positivist or interpretive) or methodological in nature are invited for submission. So the focus of the papers may include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • Research strategies and methodological and conceptual challenges in IHRM
  • Theoretical frameworks in IHRM
  • Exemplary applications in IHRM research

The aim of this Special Issue of the GHRM is to clarify the different ways of conducting research in IHRM, and to introduce frameworks to enable students and researchers to find their bearings in what up until now has been unexplored territory.

Deadline: 31.10.2018 (abstract of 1,500-1,800 words)
