GHRM is an international journal concerned with advancing the study of human resource management. It has a strong reputation as a dedicated academic journal open to high-quality research on all aspects of HRM. GHRM is available via its publisher SAGE worldwide http://ghrm.sagepub.com. The journal has a high download usage and short production cycles.
We welcome submissions that take the unique characteristics of family firms into account and that move beyond the idea of one-size-fits-all ‘best practices’ by addressing how family firms develop HR practices, take advantage of them, and bundle their practices into HR systems. By exploring these areas we hope to sharpen the theoretical underpinnings of the debate on HRM in family firms. Moreover, we seek to contribute to an understanding of if/how family firms use HR practices to proactively address environmental dynamics, demographic change or innovation.
Call for Papers: Special Issue: Human Resource Management in Family Firms, German Journal of Human Resource Management (formerly Zeitschrift für Personalforschung), Submission deadline (extended abstracts): October 31st, 2017
