Journal of Strategic Human Resource Management

"The Journal of Strategic Human Resource Management" (JSHRM) tends to develop, promote, coordinate and disseminate the original developments and practices of strategic human resource management. Journal aims to help professionals working in the field, academicians and policy-makers to contribute, to disseminate research, and to learn from each other's work.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Also, India is a huge country with a population of over a billion, highlighting the importance of the region not only from human resources perspectives, but also as one of the most attractive markets for products/services from other countries. India’s vast pool of young skilled talents attracts many developed countries either to outsource their manufacturing or to establish their plants in India. Multinational companies, coming from both developing and developed countries, are keen to take advantage of the young talented pool of human resources and big market opportunities in India. Moreover, India has the attraction of a large population that can speak English.

Considering India’s strategic role in the world economy and its contribution by providing a large pool of talented human resources to the corporate sector, it is important to understand the strategic HR issues those will contribute towards the success of the firms. Therefore IJSHRM will act as a forum for exchange of new developments in strategic human resource management. IJSHRM is a fully refereed journal, covering all issues of strategic human resource management being practiced in corporate sector of India as well as of the other countries.

The IJSHRM publishes high quality original and review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, and notes, commentaries, and news

Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.

An important role of the publisher is to support the extensive efforts of journal editors, and the often unsung volunteer work undertaken by peer reviewers in maintaining the integrity of the scholarly record. It is a tribute to scholarly practice that the system works well and problems are comparatively rare. The publisher has a supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process and is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practices are followed.

We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.
