Submit your AIRAANZ 2022 paper to Labour and Industry Conference Special Issue

The AIRAANZ 2022 Conference was a great success thanks to your efforts in assembling and delivering a fantastic portfolio of presentations.

Each year the AIRAANZ journal Labour and Industry: A Journal of the Economic and Social Relations of Work publishes an AIRAANZ Conference Special Issue. Following the theme of the AIRAANZ 2022 Conference, the Special Issue theme will be ‘Work Not As Usual'.

This theme will allow us to explore key issues for employment relations research including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Issues relevant to Indigenous, First Nations, Māori and Pasifika workers and their communities
  • The work-related impacts and implications of COVID-19
  • The challenges presented by low-paid and insecure forms of work and widening inequalities
  • Existing and emerging challenges relating to gender, work and family
  • The impacts of digitisation and technological change on work
  • The responses by employment relations actors and institutions (governments, employers, workers and their representatives) to these and other rapid changes at work and in labour markets
  • The implications of changes in work for employment relations theory
  • Other global and local issues related to work, employment and labour markets (e.g., climate change, diversity, equity and inclusion)

As a presenter, we are asking you to provide an expression of interest in submitting a full paper or research insight to the Special Issue. We would greatly appreciate it if you could let us know before Monday 7 March 2022. We will provide support and guidance to you throughout the whole publication process, so please do reach out if you are keen to submit. Please indicate your interest by replying to this email:

A link to Labour and Industry website can be found here: Details regarding the submission process and author guidelines can also be found at this link. Labour and Industry achieved a ‘2’ ranking in the UK Chartered Association of Business School’s Academic Journal Guide and has a ‘B’ ranking in the Australian Business Deans Council Journal Quality List.

The tentative date for full paper submissions is Thursday 7 April 2022 – though there is some allowance for flexibility if you need more time. The review process will be swift, and those who have their papers accepted can expect to see them published in Volume 33, Issue 1, 2023, and online as soon as they are finalised.

We look forward to receiving your expressions of interest.
