The Diversity Research Institute Journal (DRIJ) is soliciting manuscripts for the Fall 2016 inaugural edition. The DRIJ is a venue for business and academic collaboration with aims to advance the knowledge of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. As an open access journal, distinctly, its scope is to impact organizational and business practice by making knowledge and research available within and beyond academic institutions. The DRIJ explores themes that include, but are not limited to: organizational development, corporate governance, talent management, employee engagement, and corporate social responsibility.

The DRIJ welcomes writing with organizational and behavioral orientations from an array of disciplinary backgrounds including business, public administration, sociology, psychology, political science, and anthropology spanning demographic characteristics such as race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and other multicultural studies, as well as diversity based on personality, experiences, and organizational role. In particular, we invite manuscripts that continue a line of scholarly inquiry aiming to address historical concerns with social difference, and that engage with the implications and applications of having an inclusive workplace. We welcome both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. The journal will publish two issues per year, and will be archived and indexed online.
