Research Categories


From 2006, HRMJ has also broadened its editorial scope to become more globally orientated and has strengthened the international character of its Editorial Board. HRMJ seeks to publish scholarly articles on any aspect of employment studies but especially those focused on issues related to the management of people at work. Articles should make a substantive contribution to theory development on contemporary issues, incorporate rigorous use of theory and research, and offer well-founded conclusions with practical implications. Authors are encouraged to avoid the inherent biases of cross-sectional or single-source data, however, where such an approach can be justified through an appropriate research model or the potential for a novel theoretical contribution, such empirical studies will be considered provided sufficient steps have been taken to limit any potential bias. The journal is particularly interested in articles that will appeal to an international readership. Critical reviews are also welcomed, especially those pointing to how theory and practice can be developed further.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Human Resource Management Journal

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
