CALL FOR PAPERS
We aim to provide a speedy, value added editorial
process. We invite you to submit articles to the following sections of
- Cross-cultural Articles which help to define the area, critically
evaluate previous theory, and advocate new developments in theory and
methods. Empirical work which does not just provide simple comparison
across cultures is encouraged. These are welcome from any academic or
management discipline and from a broad spectrum of theoretical paradigms
and methodologies. We certainly do not want to restrict this to the
accepted ‘western’ or ‘universal’ paradigms, and culturally diverse
approaches are encouraged, as are contributions from international and
multicultural teams which draw on diverse and pluricultural approaches.
However, ultimately articles in this section should address the questions
‘How does this work (a) contribute to the advancement of scientific
knowledge on the role of culture in management theory and practice, and
ultimately (b) help managers better manage people, organizations and
change across cultures?’
- Cultural Perspectives. Contributions, particularly from
non-western societies, which represent indigenous management research are
actively sought. We are particularly concerned that contributions which do
not take a ‘western’ or ‘westernized’ approach may be overlooked in
international journals. We encourage these contributions as long as their
internal logic and external validity is sufficiently established. Single
culture work is acceptable provided it informs and advances knowledge in
cross-cultural management and this contribution is clearly stated. The
ultimate utility to cross-cultural management practice should also be
- Commentaries and Critical Reviews. We would like to encourage
substantial comments on previously published work, perspectives and
comments on key issues in the subject area. We would also like to receive
substantial reviews of conferences and other activities of academic and
professional associations around the world devoted to cross-cultural work
as well as more traditional book review articles which evaluate a number
of publications. These also must make a contribution to the study and
understanding of cross-cultural management, and will be subject to a
