ABSTRACT

 

One of the challenges facing academics is how to craft a program of research where papers and projects build on each other to develop one’s voice as a scholarly expert in a domain. The goal of this presentation is to present an overview of the development of a program of research on Work-Family to show how research publications can be designed to build on each other to build a long term research focus and also adapt as a research stream evolves. To illustrate this work, I will share research from the Work Family Health Network and give illustrations of work-family initiatives as org. change and workplace social support from several in press publications and a working paper.
