Abstract
The proposed research represents a giant leap for narrowing the scientist-practitioner gap by linking a database of more than one million HRM research findings to a hierarchical taxonomy of constructs. Through three primary studies using Q-sort methods and factor-analytic analytic techniques, we propose the development of a user interface designed specifically for practitioners that seeks to strike at the heart of the gap: automated empirical summaries that link the practitioner and academic parlance. In addition, we propose to expand an ongoing HRM research curation effort from 1 million to 1.2 million categorized findings by the end of the two-year period.
