The British Journal of Industrial Relations is a journal of work and employment relations, with a focus on the institutions, policies, and practices associated with these relations and their implications for matters of economy and society. It is both multidisciplinary and international in its scope, contributors, and readership.

Aims and Scope

The journal's purview includes work and employment, work organisation, employer practices, systems of representation and rights at work, trade unionism, state policies, and international organizations. These may intersect with social and economic issues such as work in developing countries, migrant workers, job quality, pay, gender, ethnicity, conflict, and injustice.

We seek original high quality research that makes a generalisable contribution to the understanding or knowledge of the journal's subject matter. International papers are encouraged, although they should be broadly relevant to the journal's core readership, which is primarily British but also European, North American, and Australian.

For submission guidelines and ethical standards, see our notes for contributors.
