Author Guidelines


Papers should be submitted to the relevant tracks (special interest groups), but those that are not related with the existing tracks should be submitted to the “General Track” of the congress.

Three types of papers can be submitted to the congress:

  1. Theoretical papers: This type of submission should clearly highlight the gap in the relevant literature and should define blue & grey collar-worker-specific contingencies. It is expected from the authors to refer high impact journals for the theoretical construction of their study. The expected outcomes should be conceptual models, hypotheses, research questions or propositions.
  2. Research papers: Qualitative and quantitative research papers on blue & grey collar workers should aim at revealing specific conditions that can be more explanatory for this group of workers. Cross-cultural and inter-group comparative studies are especially important for the main theme of the congress.
  3. Methodology papers: Development of measurement tools specifically for blue & grey collar employees is a crucial component of this academic event. Authors can submit papers based on alternative methos of research, development of scales, and revision of current methodological assumptions.
  4. Case studies: The contribution of professionals who have practical experience is quite significant for the academic community. HR directors, union leaders, strategic level managers and line managers can submit papers presenting real cases in the business life. It is not expected from the professionals to establish a link between theory and practice.
