Important Information

Below is a list of important information regarding the International Research Symposium.

Open all

The International Journal of Manpower (IJM) is a double-blind reviewed journal and 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.

IJM is Scopus indexed, SSCI (ISI Thomson Reuters) listed and an Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) ‘A’ rated journal.

Selected papers presented at the ACU Research Symposium will be considered for publication in a themed Special Issue of the IJM. Publication of the Special Issue is envisaged by the end of 2016.
