Personnel Review (PR) publishes rigorous, well written articles from a range of theoretical and methodological traditions.

We value articles that have high originality and that engage with contemporary challenges to human resource management theory, policy and practice development. Research that highlights innovation and emerging issues in the field, and the medium- to long-term impact of HRM policy and practice, is especially welcome.

All articles are initially screened by our team of associate editors for blind peer reviewing.

Our journal publishes articles drawn broadly, but not exclusively, from the following areas:

  • Employee and Industrial relations
  • HRM policy and practice
  • Labor market analysis
  • Impact of gender, ethnicity, faith, disability and other areas of 'traditional disadvantage' on HRM policy and practice
  • Line management delivery of HRM
  • Employee experience and insights into HRM policy and practice
  • Interim and sub-contracted provision of HRM
  • International aspects of HRM, including developing and emerging economies
  • Mobilisation and migration
  • Under-researched contexts and countries
  • New theories of HRM, including the application of social science and management science thinking and empirical investigations to new theorizing
