Aims and scope 


Journal of Human Resource Management (JHRM) is a double-blind peer reviewed international scientific journal with an international Editorial Board. The journal is published since 1998 twice a year by the Faculty of Management, Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia.


The JHRM aims at creating an open forum for scientific discourse focused on human resource management, inviting theoretical as well as empirical research papers. Special attention is paid to studies focused on human resource management practices in Central and Eastern European countries.
