Anthony M. Gould, PhD, is Full Professor of Labor Relations at Université Laval (Quebec, Canada) and Editor-in-Chief of Relations industrielles / Industrial Relations, the world's oldest scientific journal on labor relations. At the same time, he is Visiting Research Professor at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia; Visiting Research Professor, École de Commerce et de management à Paris / Leonard DeVinci Business School, Paris-LaDefense, FRANCE; he sits on the International Advisory Board of the Centre for Workforce Futures at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, and on the International Advisory Board of the University of NSW for the Review of Economic and Labor Relations, also in Sydney; he is a member of the International Consortium for Research on Employment and Work (iCrew) at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and a member of the Executive Committee of the Canadian Industrial Relations Association (CIRA). Anthony has had editorial responsibilities for well-known scholarly journals. Currently, he is on the editorial boards for "the Journal of Management History", Emerald, "The Journal of Industrial Relations", Sage and "the Economic and Labour relations Review", Sage. He maintains institutional consultancy relationships in the Middle East and has been a guest lecturer at universities there and in North America. Anthony is a founding member of the Tacitus Forum for Rational Thinking in Social Inquiry and of the Editorial Board of the Springer/Palgrave Debates in Business History Book Series in New York. He is also a founding member (Executive Chairman) of Environmental Solutions, New Zealand Ltd, which is currently working in partnership with major agricultural supply companies around the world to reduce methane emissions from livestock and manage feed regimes more sustainably.


Between 2010 and 2022, Anthony authored 30 peer-reviewed articles (including several co-authored). This body of work has been published and cited in leading scientific literature across the globe (e.g. numerous articles have been published in Google Top-10 business journals, Scopus Top-100 journals, etc). For example, with the help and assistance of generous and talented colleagues, Anthony has made peer-reviewed contributions to the following journals: Personnel Review; the Leadership Quarterly; the Academy of Management Learning and Education; Labor History; the Journal of Management History; The American Economist; Work, Employment and Society; the Journal of Industrial Relations; Harvard University's Sociological Methods and Research; the Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods; Business Research Quarterly; the Journal of Business Research; Asia-Pacific Journal of Management; and the International Review of Distance and Distributed Learning. Anthony has reviewed manuscripts submitted to, for example, the British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology, British Journal of Management, Journal of Management History, British Journal of Industrial Relations, Industrial Relations (UC, Berkeley), Journal of Industrial Relations (Sage), Canadian Journal of Sociology, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Human Relations, Personnel Review, Organization, Organization Science and Organizational Research Methods. Since 2010, he has presented several refereed conference papers in the Middle East, Asia, Europe and North America. His papers have notably been accepted at the Academy of Management's Annual General Meeting held in Los Angeles (2016), Atlanta (2017), Chicago (2018), Boston (2019), Vancouver (2021), and Seattle (2022) and published in the Academy's Proceedings. Anthony has been recognized by his peers for his contributions internationally. For example, in 2016, he was awarded the "Best Reviewer Prize" for his editorial contributions by his peers at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting (Los Angeles) Emerald Publishing's, as well as the "Outstanding Article Award".

Anthony has written several book chapters, reviews and opinion pieces. He is particularly pleased with his contribution as one of four editors of a multi-volume (1700 pages) edited series published by Palgrave-McMillan, the Palgrave Handbook of Management History (to which he also contributed five chapters). This work is billed by the publisher as "the most comprehensive and in-depth examination of its subject on the market" (https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783319621135). Following its merger with Springer-Nature, Palgrave-McMillan is the world's largest provider of scholarly books, with a global distribution network. His textbook on the history of management was featured on the publisher's website as having broken several download records in the months following its release. In 2020, Anthony signed a pre-contract with Palgrave-McMillan to jointly write a monograph entitled "Catastrophes, Management and Business: An Historical Perspective", scheduled for release in late 2022.

Since 2010, Anthony has been working with students in unconventional ways. For example, he was the first in his faculty to write and publish high-impact scientific articles with graduate students. This body of work has appeared in strong and reputable peer-reviewed journals, including Rutgers Business Review, Competitiveness Review (Emerald), Journal of Policy Regulation and Strategy for Telecommunications and Media (Emerald), Journal of Strategy and Management (Emerald) and Sage's Economic and Labour Relations Review. Anthony and student papers have been well cited over the past five years (in some cases, achieving the highest citation rates for two-, three- and five-year reference periods). Several have also won key international awards (e.g. International Academy of Management and Business, Best Paper) and have been widely adopted for teaching purposes, appearing, for example, on course reading lists at the University of Minnesota's Carlson School of Business, Griffith University (Australia), Monash University (Australia), University of Singapore and University of NSW (Australia).

Anthony has held key management positions in Australia and Europe. In 2006, he was Senior Research Fellow at ACAS (Arbitration, Conciliation and Advisory Service), the UK's flagship employment relations agency. Earlier in his career, he was a senior executive in the Australian public sector. Anthony had significant delegations in human resources management, planning and budgeting. As an executive, he achieved ambitious goals in labor relations, governance and business development.
