Call for Papers: Native American and Indigenous Persons’ Work Issues

Information Age Publishing has put out a call for papers focused on Native American and Indigenous Persons’ Work Issues to be published in a special issue volume of Research in Human Resource Management, a peer-reviewed research series. The issue will be edited by Dianna L. Stone of the Universities of New Mexico, Albany, and Virginia Tech; Eugene F. Stone-Romero of the University of New Mexico; and Kimberly M. Lukaszewski, of Wright State University.

Native Americans and Indigenous Persons disproportionately live in poverty and face challenges accessing economic opportunities, and little research has been centered on these issues. The special issue aims to focus on micro-level research on Native Americans’ work issues, considering how existing theories of organizational behavior and human resources (HR) might be used to explain the inclusion or exclusion of Natives in organizations and describe the strategies that might be used to facilitate the employment of Native people. 

Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to: Native American cultural values and their impact on behavior in organizations, the challenges faced by Native Americans in work settings, how Native American leadership styles differ from the leadership styles of the dominant group in a nation and HR practices that will help meet the needs of Native Americans.

Questions and short proposals of one to three pages should be sent to Dianna Stone at by February 1, 2023. Final papers will be due on November 1, 2023, with a maximum length of 50 pages.
