Annual Review Articles

The British Journal of Industrial Relations has a tradition to invite one scholar each year to write a review article which critically discusses current developments of employment relations in one particular country, that has been showing interesting labour market developments in the last few years. Recent countries include the US, Israel and China and South Korea (for 2011). The article should be no longer than 10,000 words and the deadline is normally on February 1st of the following year. Articles are then reviewed by all editors and its publication is aimed for our September issue (the annual review articles always appear one year later).
