The Singapore Labour Journal (SGLJ) aims to promote labour research and policy issues in Singapore and its surrounding region. It is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a platform for academics, policymakers, and practitioners to publish and advance research in the field of labour. The journal is multi-disciplinary, encompassing labour-related topics like labour economics, employment and labour relations, work conditions, social policies, health, and safety. The journal gives due recognition to empirical work and evidence-based practices with labour and economic interpretations. Practitioner insights is a key feature of the journal, as these articles communicate pragmatic implications of labour issues rather than having an academic or methodological focus. The SGLJ is an open access journal which serves to communicate scientific and practitioner knowledge to a wider audience.
The Singapore Labour Journal is a compilation of articles drawn from insights of academics and practitioners to curate a unique perspective on labour issues.
Each article in this issue is an embodiment of the theme Championing Workers' Interests Bettering Lives for All, translating research into practice in Singapore and globally with the aim of helping our workers chart a way forward in the future of work.
