This journal answers the need for a topical, wide-ranging and readable overview of everything happening on the industrial and commercial front, so it's relevant, the information can be applied within your own organization and you can take advantage of the newest ideas to develop the human resources within your company. 

Article contributions are welcomed from PR specialists on behalf of clients for whom they provide services. Typical articles are often case-study based, where a model or concept used is described and specifically related to the client's situation or problems. A description of its application is then followed by highlights of outcomes and benefits together with any wider implications. Please note that the publisher requires copyright assignment from all submitting authors and particularly where organizations are named. Please contact the publisher for further details.
