Dr. Greg Wang, professor of human resource development at The University of Texas at Tyler, was appointed editor of the Journal of Chinese Human Resource Management, a peer-reviewed international scholarly journal in the human resource management and development field, Dr. Jerry Gilley, Department of Human Resource Development and Technology chair, announced.
An international scholarly journal launched by Emerald Group Publishing Ltd this year, it focuses on human resource management and development research with implications for China.
According to Gilley, Wang is appointed at a time when Chinese HRM theory, research and practice have global implications. The appointment was through an international competition coordinated by the publisher.
“Together with Dr. Andrea Ellinger serving as associate editor of Human Resource Development Quarterly, we now have two international journals housed in the Department of Human Resource Development and Technology. This signifies the quality of our newly-established human resource development doctoral program.” Gilley said.
The Ph.D. program in HRD was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in 2008 and accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 2009. The first class will enroll fall 2011.
