Call for Papers on the Gig Economy

The WorldatWork Journal of Total Rewards (JTR) invites submissions for the 2022 Fourth Quarter journal. The editors are soliciting high-quality papers on the topic of the Gig Economy. The prevalence of gig workers as a talent source for many organizations makes this a timely journal focus and topic for further study. Gig workers are defined as independent contractors, online platform workers, contract firm workers, on-call workers and/or temporary workers. JTR papers should discuss a wide range of issues, including:

  •   Compensation and benefits practices or implications related to gig workers or their relationship to employees
  •   Cultural or proprietary issues that result from the utilization of contract workers
  •   Economic or tax implications for gig workers
  •   Other contemporary issues that result from the increased usage of non-traditional employees.

Submissions should include an abstract, and a statement that the submitted work is original, that it has not been published elsewhere and that the paper is not currently under review by any other journal. All submissions are due by May 1, 2022. If your submission is accepted for consideration in the Q4 issue, papers for peer review will be due Sept. 1, 2022. The suggested length for JTR papers is 3,500-5,000 words.   

Submissions should be sent to Jim Fickess, editor of The Journal of Total Rewards, or guest editor Beth Ritter, associate professor of practice at North Carolina State University.

Send your submissions to: Jim.Fickess@worldatwork.org and Bmritte2@ncsu.edu.
