NEW TOOL FOR SESSION ORGANIZING!

FOR PAPER AUTHORSYou will have the best chance of getting accepted to the program if you organize a complete session proposal (4 papers, Chair, Discussants, etc.).

  • Using this form "Session Builder for LERA@ASSA", researchers can upload abstracts/paper files of their research here to foster symposia building prior to submitting a session proposal. 

  • Then, using the "Review Portal", logged-in LERA members can review abstracts, identify similar themes, and coordinate with each other to construct session proposals.

  • Session proposals--consisting of 4 papers, Chairs, Discussant(s)--are submitted elsewhere; details at Call for Proposals, and are due by March 15.
*** Using these tools above DOES NOT submit your paper to the program committee. For that, you will need to use the "proposal form for symposia and papers" at the bottom of this page! ***

The LERA Program Committee seeks proposals offering original and high-quality research on employment and labor relations topics for its January meeting held in conjunction with the Allied Social Sciences Association (ASSA). We welcome proposals on a broad range of issues, such as wages and inequality, labor market regulation, social insurance, economic justice, technology and work organization, workplace benefits (e.g. retirement and health insurance), and work-life balance, as well as topics of current interest or related more generally to the mission of LERA.

Proposed sessions should include a total of 7 participants with either 1 chair, 3 presenters, and 3 discussants OR 1 chair, 4 presenters, and 2 discussants. The Committee also accepts individual paper proposals, although preference is given to session submissions.

To give the program committee an understanding of the proposed panel, we request that symposia organizers provide:

  • Symposium title
  • Brief abstract describing overall theme of the session
  • Listing of session participants, their affiliations, their role in the session, and their email addresses
  • Paper titles and brief paper abstracts for all papers to be presented in the session

Membership Requirement: In order to present a paper at a LERA session, presenters must be current in their LERA membership. (Join LERA http://www.LERAweb.org/join-lera.)

Post-conference publication opportunities:

  • Presenters in LERA@ASSA can choose to submit their papers to a competition held jointly with the ILR Review. The LERA Program Committee will select up to three of the submitted papers to receive a guaranteed review by referees selected by the ILR Review. Completed papers must be submitted by January 19, 2025. Papers are eligible for consideration if based on an accepted LERA paper presented at the 2025 meeting.

  • Papers presented at the LERA@ASSA Meeting will be invited to be published in the LERA Proceedings. Visit the LERA website for complete information about our Proceedings and submission requirements.

We encourage a balance of gender, racial, institutional, geographic, and generational diversity among proposed session participants.
