CIHRS believes in making academic scholarship available to all those interested in the international human resource management field. We have therefore taken the initiative to share with you research work that you would not normally be able to access publicly, but which has great potential value to both practitioners and scholars alike. To this end, the following papers are available for you to download free-of-charge, many of them authored by graduating students from the Penn State ‘MS in Human Resources and Employment Relations’ program with a passion for IHRM. We believe that you will find these to be useful reviews of specific topics in IHRM that have not been published elsewhere.
CIHRS held a Virtual Paper Development Workshop in May 2021. This PDW was designed primarily for junior academic faculty or doctoral students looking to improve their publishing skills in the international HRM field. The workshop included paper development roundtables (using Zoom breakout rooms) intended to be developmental conversations among a small group of scholars led by an expert mentor. The workshop also included plenary panel discussions involving leading scholars in the IHRM field (Professors James Sun, Emma Parry, and Jaime Bonache). You can learn more here.
