Human Resource Development Review


eISSN: 15526712 | ISSN: 15344843 | Current volume: 23 | Current issue: 1 Frequency: Quarterly

Human Resource Development Review (HRDR) is an international journal focusing on theory development for scholars and practitioners in human resource development and related disciplines. HRDR publishes high-quality conceptual work using non-empirical research methods. The journal is committed to advancing HRD by providing fresh theoretical insights, new conceptual models, critical examination of literature, and multi-paradigm approaches to theory building.

The journal provides new theoretical insights that can advance our understanding of human resource development, including:

  • Syntheses of existing bodies of theory
  • New substantive theories
  • Exploratory conceptual models
  • Taxonomies and typologies developed as foundations for theory
  • Treatises in formal theory construction
  • Papers on the history of theory
  • Critique of theory that includes alternative research propositions
  • Metatheory
  • Integrative literature reviews with strong theoretical implications

The journal also addresses philosophies of HRD, historical foundations, definitions of the field, conceptual organization of the field, and ethical foundations. Human Resource Development Review takes a multi-paradigmatic view of theory building.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

As described elsewhere, Human Resource Development Review is a theory development journal for scholars of human resource development and related disciplines. Human Resource Development Review publishes articles that make theoretical contributions on theory development, foundations of HRD, theory building methods, and integrative reviews of the relevant literature. Papers whose central focus is empirical findings, including empirical method and design are not considered for publication in Human Resource Development Review.

This journal encourages submissions that provide new theoretical insights to advance our understanding of human resource development and related disciplines. Such papers may include syntheses of existing bodies of theory, new substantive theories, exploratory conceptual models, taxonomies and typology developed as foundations for theory, treatises in formal theory construction, papers on the history of theory, critique of theory that includes alternative research propositions, metatheory, and integrative literature reviews with strong theoretical implications. Papers addressing foundations of HRD might address philosophies of HRD, historical foundations, definitions of the field, conceptual organization of the field, and ethical foundations. Human Resource Development Review takes a multi-paradigm view of theory building so submissions from different paradigms are encouraged.
