Evidence-based HRM: a scholarship perspective with a difference

Lange, Thomas (2013) Evidence-based HRM: a scholarship perspective with a difference. Evidence-based HRM: a Global Forum for Empirical Scholarship, 1 (1) . pp. 4-15. ISSN 2049-3983 [Article] (doi:10.1108/20493981311318584)


Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide an introduction to the new journal, its inspirations, scope and ambitions.

Design/methodology/approach – The paper reviews selected strands of the literature on evidence-based scholarship and discusses some of the observations and remedial recommendations made in the literature to bring research, policy and practice closer together.

Findings – Drawing on these observations and recommendations, the paper highlights the roles our authors and their published works can play when contributing to an evidence-based HR research agenda. Building on these insights, the paper arrives at the journal's editorial vision and encourages the production of scholarly empirical research articles that have a high impact on the HR field as a whole. Embracing the richness of contributions from multiple disciplines and supporting a thematic diversity in the international HR arena, the paper introduces and explains the core principles EBHRM strives to encourage and promote: empirical robustness, analytical rigour and practical significance.

Originality/value – In the spirit of these arguments, the paper makes the case for taking on the challenge of moving scholarship, policy and practice closer together and introduces the first contributions.
