(13 May 2020) With 1.6 billion children out of school1 and an escalating unemployment rate across the world, the current COVID-19 pandemic is challenging the way businesses and schools are adapting during this turbulent time, with a focus on the importance of technology as these entities transition to an online-only environment. Understanding the importance of having timely research in these areas, IGI Global is releasing three major reference works that cover comprehensive topics ideal during COVID-19, including human resource and organizational development, educational technologies and applications, and more. Edited by Mehdi Khosrow Pour, D.B.A, Executive Editor of IGI Global, USA, and set to release in June and July 2020, view these noteworthy, forthcoming publications below:
