Abstract:Human resource articles published in the top human resource management (HRM) journals from 1994 through 2001 are analyzed by topic, research technique, level of analysis, and data source. The results are aggregated and summarized to address the current state of affairs in human resource management research. Moreover, these data are used to examine what is not being addressed in the field at the current time. Results point to a lack of focus on methods, diversity, and technology, and the decline of the once-popular absenteeism and turnover streams of research. Also lacking is variance in research methodologies, with empirical analyses, specifically regression, being the most frequently employed methodology. The article concludes with suggestions for future HRM research.
