Abstract

The publications in a specific management journal add value to the analysis and understanding of both the publications and the background of the scholars. Generally, studies of this nature do not cover demographic variables such as gender and race as the data is not readily available. These are crucial to finding out who produces the knowledge in a specific subject field. We present the analysis of publications which appeared in the South African Journal of Human Resources Management from 2005 to 2015. The authorship of these publications is examined for race, gender, coauthorship, sectoral, institutional and departmental affiliation, and the provincial location of the institutions. The relationship between these variables highlights the unique features of knowledge production in management studies in South Africa.
