Call for papers - Covid 19, Work and Employment special issue


Covid 19 has been a major influence on work and employment for over two years.  A variety of articles have explored what has occurred in other jurisdictions. The Aotearoa New Zealand context however, attracts international interest due to the relatively unique way that NZ has experienced the pandemic.

We are therefore creating a new NZJER Special Issue, with the aim of capturing a broad range of issues involved with Covid 19.

There will be Early Online versions of articles, so that content is published as early as possible. The full Issue is intended for publication in the third quarter of this year.


We invite you to submit an abstracts of 1000 words. The close-off date for these is 30 April 2022

About NZJER: The New Zealand Journal of Employment Relations is an open access journal that publishes research and practice articles in the broad area of employment relations. It is ranked B on the ABDC list (2020).
