He has been a regular contributor to and member of the editorial board of Industrial Relations, and has also published in Industrial and Labor Relations Review and in influential economics journals such as the Journal of Human Resources and Journal of Public Economics. His Ph.D. is from the University of Toronto.

Under his watch, Industrial Relations has maintained and strengthened its position as a top-ranked journal in its field. Raphael will continue to handle manuscripts submitted before July 1, but Riddell will handle all future submissions.

The journal continues to welcome submissions of top-quality research on current topics in industrial relations, covering any aspect of the employment relationship in the United States or abroad. It will also continue to publish occasional special issues, including an upcoming October 2015 issue commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Fair Labor Standards Act. This issue was coedited by Michael Reich and Jesse Rothstein, the director emeritus and director of IRLE.
