Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

CBABill Herbert sends word of the e-publication of Volume V of the Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy (JCBA).  JCBA publishes on collective bargaining (in its broadest sense) in a university setting in three distinctive genres: scholarly articles, opinion pieces, and “notes from the field” practitioner pieces to share the practical workings of collective bargaining. JCBA is an open access, peer-review online publication of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions. JCBA welcomes submission of scholarly articles for future volumes from a wide community of university and college faculty, graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, administrators, union leaders and representatives and other others with an interest in collective bargaining and representation issues in the academy.
