Organization: University Council of IR/HR Programs (UCIRHRP)
Deadline:
January 15, 2018

The University Council of Industrial Relations and Human Resource Programs, UCIRHRP, is sponsoring a student paper competition at the LERA Annual Meeting. New developments in employment relations, organizational behavior, and social movements call for a closer look at emergent processes, outcomes and organizational forms. The motivation for this special call for papers is to reflect the diversity of theoretical and methodological approaches to researching emergent phenomena in the field. Examples include, but are by no means restricted to new forms of labor market institutions; diversity in organizations; social movements; and international/transnational actors and organizations. UCIRHRP will select the top papers to organize a session during the LERA annual meeting, offering selected authors the opportunity to present their papers. A monetary award of $300 will be given to the author of the top paper chosen for this session. Papers should be submitted by January 15. Only completed papers, not abstracts or letters of intent, may be considered. All paper submissions must comply with the following submission criteria:

  • To be considered for this competition, the author or authors must all be students.

  • Papers are limited to 20 double-spaced pages doubled spaced and in a 12-pt font (converted to a PDF file), including footnotes, tables and bibliographies.
