The general focus of our faculty's research and scholarship covers a wide breadth of human resource and labor relations issues, with inquiries ranging from micro-level individual and organizational analyses to macro-level organizational and policy analyses. As a multidisciplinary field of study, our research draws on various theoretical foundations of other disciplines (economics, psychology, sociology, political science, law, etc.) and employs the full range of scientific methodologies. Given the breadth and multidisciplinary nature of our field, our faculty publishes in a wide range of distinctly different peer-reviewed journals, including both discipline-bound and multidisciplinary journals that publish research focusing on various 'subfields' within human resources and labor relations. These subfields and other important areas of study within these subfields are listed below. We conduct research in all of them... check them out.
