Call for Papers: ICSB’s – JSBMs- Special Issue on High Growth Women’s Entrepreneurship

The phenomena of women’s entrepreneurship, both the women business owners and their businesses, is viewed as a potential source of economic and social development.   The 2012 GEM Women’s Report noted 224 million women had new or established businesses in 67 economies while today there are 274 million in 74 economies. Despite their participation and contributions, there is a persistent storyline that women entrepreneurs do not perform as well as their male counterparts, in terms of sales, employment growth, or profitability. Critical and missing in the research are studies that focus on high growth women entrepreneurs.  Growth-oriented businesses are essential for all economies to succeed because they are more likely to create jobs and support communities, achieve higher productivity, innovation and exporting. This special issue of the Journal of Small Business Management seeks papers that broadly fit with the overarching theme of growth-oriented women entrepreneurs. To be considered for publication, manuscripts should be submitted to the JSBM electronic submission system at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jsbm. Make sure to indicate that your manuscript is intended for the “High Growth Women’s Entrepreneurship” special issueDEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: February 5, 2018

New Book Published ‘Research Handbook on Entrepreneurial Teams’

New Book Published ‘Research Handbook on Entrepreneurial Teams’

This book reinforces the value and importance of entrepreneurial teams within the entrepreneurship literature. The expert group of contributors identifies and develops various key areas of research on entrepreneurship teams and suggests the way ahead for future research in the area.

The contributors expand on the existing literature on entrepreneurial teams by first revisiting the most recent framework applied to entrepreneurial teams (that is the Inputs-Mediators-Outputs-Inputs model) and then advancing our understanding of issues such as formation, structuring, deep-level diversity and emergent states. The book additionally considers different contexts of application with reference to their commonalities and specificities and investigates under-researched areas such as entrepreneurial teams within indigenous communities, ethnically diverse groups and women entrepreneurs. The contributors present practice-relevant research and offer researchers a platform from which they can explore new insights into the phenomenon of entrepreneurial teams.

ORCID iD in the manuscript submission process at JSBM

ORCID iD in the manuscript submission process at JSBM

ORCID aims to solve the problem of name ambiguity among contributors to research. By supplying unique and persistent identifiers, ORCID ensures that researchers can be easily and correctly connected to their research activities, outputs and affiliations.

The ORCID DE project – funded by the German Research Foundation – was launched to foster a wider adoption of ORCID across Germany. Funders such as the Wellcome Trust UK, Austrian Science Fund (Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung) and Swedish Research Council now require ORCID iDs as part of the grant proposal process, and researchers have shown support for similar mandates from publishers (ORCID Survey, December 2015).

ORCID iDs are not required for submission to JSBM, but we strongly recommend that the submitting author provide an ORCID iD when submitting their manuscript.

By recommending ORCID iDs, we are creating more opportunities to recognize, reward and support authors in complying with mandates from their institutions and funders.
