Baton Rouge - Dr. Sunyoung Park, Assistant Professor with the LSU School of Leadership and Human Resource Development, has received the 2018 Outstanding Paper Award for the article, Intervention research and its influence on nonintervention research in human resource development, published from the European Journal of Training and Development, as one of the Emerald Literati Awards.
The purpose of the paper is to identify how intervention research weighed in nonintervention research in the field of human resource development (HRD) by examining the number, citation frequency and use of experimental studies in HRD academic journals.
The Emerald Literati Awards are now in their 25th year and was established to celebrate and reward the outstanding contributions of authors and reviewers to scholarly research. The criteria used to judge the awards are based on six areas that inform the development of our products; internationality; diversity; support for scholarly research; encouragement of applied research (impact); commitment to high quality scholarship; and a desire to ensure reader, author, and customer experience is the best it can be. The Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) of each journal published by Emerald is invited to select a winter of the ‘Outstanding Paper’ award and up to three ‘Highly Commended’ awards from the previous year’s volume.
Emerald Publishing was founded in 1967 to champion new ideas that would advance the research and practice of business and management. Emerald manages a portfolio of nearly 300 journals, more than 2,500 books and over 1,500 teaching cases.
