The International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations plays a key role in the academic life of the Marco Biagi Foundation.
The Journal is one of the leading publications in the field of international and comparative labour law and was founded in 1985 by Alan Neal, University of Warwick. In 1999 Marco Biagi was appointed to be Managing Editor of the Journal, and continued to serve until he passed away, with Alan Neal, Manfred Weiss and Tiziano Treu as the scientific directors. Prof. Mia Rönnmar was appointed as Managing Editor in 2012, serving until June 2015 when Prof. Guy Davidov and Prof. Pnina Alon-Shenker took over as joint Editors-in-Chief, serving until December 2020. In January 2021, Prof. Anne Davies was appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief.
The Journal adopts a double-blind peer review process, that is characteristic of the leading international academic journals, with the support of the international advisory board, consisting of eminent academics of international standing.
The Journal appears four times a year, publishing papers on innovative practices relating to labour law, industrial relations and human resources management. The editorial approach aims to cover the widest possible range of countries, with a clear preference for interdisciplinary and comparative studies. As a result, the Journal serves as an essential forum and source of information for labour law scholars, human resources professionals, trade unionists and researchers, and is to be found in the leading university libraries of the world. The Journal also serves to promote the Foundation’s international research network.
