Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Manpower (IJM) is a double-blind reviewed journal provides guidance for those involved at all levels in human resource planning and labour economics. The journal publishes research papers, the results and analysis of which will have implications or relevance to policy makers and practitioners in relevant fields. IJM gives priority to strongly empirical/analytical research papers.

The field of human resource planning and labour economics is a complex one, influenced by the many social, technological and economic changes evident in the world today. The journal is an invaluable support to academics and researchers in the field, and to all those charged with setting policies and strategies relating to workforce issues.

The journal includes reviews of current literature, applied research articles, case studies and histories, as well as special and themed issues.

Recent Special Issues

Work family conflict: evidence from non-Western contexts (Volume 38, Issue 8) - Guest Editor: Dr Abhishek Goel. This special issue provides an opportunity to look at work-family conflict studies from cultures that are different from the industrialized economies in the Anglo cluster defined by GLOBE studies.

Labor adjustment in the European economic area during the Great Recession (Volume 38, Issue 7) - Guest Editors: Martin Kahanec, Martin Suster and Klaus F. Zimmermann. The principal narrative emanating from this special issue is that the Great Recession affected the EU labor markets differently, and these also responded in a non-uniform way. It is clear that these complex issues must be further studied to better understand the various margins of labor market adjustments and their interactions during the business cycle. The papers collected in this volume provide some important new results enriching the academic debate and offering several policy implications for governance of EU labor markets and the European single market in a more fruitful way.
