CFS: Independent Contracting

Special Issue: “Freelancers and Independent Contractors”

Small Enterprise Research: The Journal of SEAANZ

Deadline for Papers: 30th November 2014

Volume 22 Number 2 2015 – ISSN: 1321-5906

Edited by: Dr Tui McKeown (tui.mckeown@monash.edu) and Robyn Cochrane (robyn.cochrane@monash.edu.au) Monash University, Australia

APRNs, nursing scholars researching professional issues, and nurses in consulting are invited to submit papers for this special issue of Small Enterprise Research devoted to Freelancers and Independent Contractors.

The world of work has seen the downsizing and outsourcing of work that once took place as part of a conventional employer-employee relationship. However, today there are a significant number of self-employed independent contractors or ‘freelancers’ working with and within organisations. The concept of a ‘freelancer’ remains vaguely defined in law and poorly understood within the academic literature. Definition of this type of micro-enterprise is also poor with the word ‘freelancer’ used in conjunction with ‘independent contractor’ and other terms. This special issue seeks to understand the nature, characteristics, contributions and challenges facing the freelancer. It also seeks to identify current research activity and directions for future research into this important and growing form of small business.
