Call for Papers: Entrepreneurial Action

“‘[W]hile many factors and constructs are important to the phenomenon of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship itself does not happen until someone takes action!” Have the organizers been reading Foss and Klein (1, 2)?

CALL FOR PAPERS
Entrepreneurial Action

 Volume 14 of Advances in Entrepreneurship, Firm Emergence and Growth
Due date: August 1, 2011

Editors:
Andrew C. Corbett, RPI; Jerome Katz, Saint Louis University

Advances in Entrepreneurship, Firm Emergence and Growth provides an annual examination of the major current research, theoretical, and methodological efforts in the field of entrepreneurship, and its related disciplines, including firm emergence and growth research. The Advances series also publishes papers from other fields, such as strategy, organizational behavior, or sociology that use entrepreneurial samples or make a contribution to entrepreneurial theory or research.

Volume 14 will consider the central issue of entrepreneurial action: while many factors and constructs are important to the phenomenon of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship itself does not happen until someone takes action! Both theoretical and empirical manuscripts that consider all aspects of entrepreneurial action are encouraged. A representative, but by no means exhaustive, listing of relevant topics includes:

  • The antecedents to entrepreneurial action
  • Psychological factors and entrepreneurial action
  • Sociological factors and entrepreneurial action
  • Economic factors and entrepreneurial action
  • Relationships between opportunity recognition, evaluation and entrepreneurial action
  • Relationships between failure and entrepreneurial action
  • Networks, networking and entrepreneurial action
  • Cross-cultural comparative studies of entrepreneurial action
  • Theoretical and conceptual models of entrepreneurial action
  • Moderators and mediators of entrepreneurial action
  • Entrepreneurship education employing entrepreneurial action
  • Entrepreneurial action in different context – corporate, social, family business, etc.

The papers in Advances reflect many state-of-the-art topics and approaches, and are written by leading researches in the field, making each volume an important source of information for virtually all entrepreneurship researchers. The distinctive competence of research volumes such as Advances is that the chapters can be published without page restrictions allowing for greater detail in the background, development, and implementation of ideas than is possible in journal articles. This provides authors with the opportunity to fully express their key ideas, provide much more complete support, and include relevant multi-page appendices. In effect, the Advances series provides authors the opportunity to publish an “article of record” of their major theoretical or empirical ideas, and see it disseminated to a wide audience. Today, the series is in the libraries of virtually all of the schools with active Ph.D. programs in entrepreneurship, as well as the majority of AACSB accredited schools with MBA concentrations in entrepreneurship and related fields.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss paper ideas with interested researchers. Submissions to Volume 14 of Advances will be blind reviewed by peers. Contact information for the editors: Andrew Corbett, 518/879-9117, acorbett@babson.edu; and Jerry Katz, 314/977-3864, katzja@slu.edu.
