Advances in Developing Human Resources is a quarterly journal that explores and examines a wide range of topics relevant to developing human potential and ultimately an organization’s overall performance. The journal is grounded in sound research and theory and is edited by a leading scholar in the field. The content is applicable to higher education, profit-sector, non-profit sector, public sector, and a variety of other workplace settings. The journal is readable and relevant to scholars, practitioners, scholar/practitioners, educators, and researchers.

Submissions that offer new conceptual, philosophical, and theoretical insights or build on existing bodies of human resource development research are encouraged. A presenting problem situates a submitted manuscript within a relevant human resource development (HRD) domain/paradigm (e.g. learning, performance, training and development, career development, organization development, critical HRD, strategic HRD, leader/leadership development, higher education, global/cross cultural HRD). Given the interdisciplinary nature of HRD, solutions should be applicable to a wide range of organizational or social contexts with an emphasis on ways that practitioners can apply findings or new knowledge that improves social conditions or the world of work.
