Human Resource Development Quarterly Tim Hatcher, Editor North Carolina State University Baiyin Yang, Associate Editor University of Minnesota Sponsored by the ASTD and The Academy of Human Resource Development. Published by Jossey-Bass: An Imprint of WILEY Human Resource Development Quarterly (HRDQ) is the first scholarly journal focused directly on the evolving field of human resource development (HRD). HRDQ has become the national forum for interdisciplinary exchange on the subject of HRD. HRDQ provides a central focus for research on human resource development issues as well as the means for disseminating such research. HRDQ recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of the HRD field and brings together relevant research from the related fields, such as economics, education, management, sociology, and psychology. It provides an important link in the application of theory and research to HRD practice. In general, HRDQ publishes scholarly work that addresses the theoretical foundations of HRD, HRD research, and evaluation of HRD interventions and contexts. Articles concerned solely with the practice of HRD are not within the scope of this journal but may be more appropriate for practitioner-oriented publications. Authors may contribute to HRDQ by submitting manuscripts for peer review, for the nonrefereed forum section, and for the media reviews section. Authors are encouraged to discuss actual and potential research and conceptual manuscripts with the editor prior to submittal. Editorial correspondence may be sent via e-mail to the Editor, Tim Hatcher, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or to the Managing Editor, Paige Layno Winn at email@example.com.
