BRQ-BUSINESS RESEARCH QUARTERLY

Call for Papers for the Special Issue on:

Our House is on Fire!

The Role of Business in Achieving the
2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Submission Deadline: January 31, 2021

Co-editors of the Special Issue:

With this call for papers, we invite research that advances knowledge on the role of business in meeting the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on time. In 2015, the UN launched the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which consists of 17 goals and 169 related targets aimed at tackling the global grand challenges of our era, including poverty, climate change, biodiversity loss, and inequality (see Figure 1). These 17 SDGs were the result of cross-sector collaboration among multiple stakeholders from 193 countries, including representatives of governments, companies, and civil society. The ultimate objective of the Agenda is to motivate immediate action to protect our planet and ensure a more sustainable future for all (Lu et al., 2015). According to the UN, the 17 SDGs are all interconnected (Sachs et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2019), such that simultaneous and urgent action is required on all of them (UN, 2015). For example, the loss of biodiversity cannot be reversed—if we fail to protect endangered species now, they will disappear forever (WWF, 2018).

Even though the SDGs were launched as a call for action at the country level, the agenda recognizes that achieving the SDGs requires not only governmental intervention but also collective action among a number of different actors, including businesses and civil society. According to the Head of the UN Development Programme, “the new sustainable development agenda cannot be achieved without business” (UN News Centre, 2015). However, business scholars have only recently begun to acknowledge the crucial role of businesses in efforts to fulfill the SDGs (e.g., Buckley et al., 2017; George et al., 2016; van Zanten & van Tulder, 2018).

We know very little about how businesses can either help achieve the SDGs or delay progress and even exacerbate global grand challenges. Research at the intersection of business and SDGs is still rare. This is due, in part, to the novelty of the SDG framework (Howard-Grenville et al, 2019; van Zanten & van Tulder, 2018) and the lack of understanding of how to operationalize the SDGs (Sachs et al., 2019). Van Zanten and van Tulder (2018) offer an exception that provides interesting evidence of multinational enterprises’ engagement with the SDG framework. They argue that the degree of actionability of an SDG target, the approach to engaging with those targets (e.g., “doing good” versus “avoiding harm”), the home-host country context, and the industrial sector influence corporate engagement in the SDGs. Recently, Dror et al. (2019) examined the development of new financial instruments aimed at promoting the SDGs, while Rousseau et al. (2019) analyzed the role of nonprofit environmental organizations in the formation of sustainable cities and communities.

In sum, with this call for papers, we hope to motivate business scholars to conduct research that not only improves our understanding of how and when business can engage in SDGs but also provides solutions to pressing global grand challenges. We believe that an understanding of the business-SDG interface requires cross-disciplinary and multi-method research and, above all, thinking beyond established theoretical boundaries. Therefore, we invite papers that adopt different research approaches, both conceptual and empirical, and draw from different theoretical perspectives.

Possible research areas include but are not limited to:

  • New organizational theories and approaches to understanding the role of business in SDG implementation,
  • Time and space challenges in articulating firms’ integration of the SDGs,
  • Paradoxes and tensions in tackling SDGs simultaneously,
  • SDG greenwashing—rainbow revolution or rainbow wash?,
  • Cross-sector partnerships among different stakeholders (e.g., governments, businesses, international organizations, NGOs) aimed at advancing SDGs,
  • Regenerative organizations—how organizations embedded in society help advance the pursuit of SDGs,
  • Emotions and sustainability—compassionate organizing and venturing and SDGs, and
  • The translation of SDGs into actionable business practices.

Managing Gender Equityand Equality across Borders:Research, Practice,and Evidence-based Recommendations

SPECIAL ISSUE CALL FOR PAPERS Guest Editors: Katharina Bader (Northumbria University, UK) Lena Knappert (VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands) Mila Lazarova (Simon Fraser University, Canada) Eddy Ng (Bucknell University, USA)

Gender  equity  and  equality  (i.e.,  giving  the  same  opportunities  to  men  and  women  and supporting them according to their specific needs) are among the grand global challenges as women comprise 50% of the world‘s population and its human capital (United Nations, 2019).

From an economic perspective, if managed effectively, increased gender equity and equality can enhance team and organizational performance (Hoogendoorn, Oosterbeek, & Van Praag, 2013; Roh & Kim, 2016). From a moral imperative, gender equity and equality contribute to women’s  opportunity  to  succeed  in  business  and  society  (Seierstad,  2016).  Yet,  although gender is among the most frequently addressed diversity dimensions, the progress towards gender equity and equality in business and society has been described as “stubborn” (Gavett & Perry, 2019) and “stalled” (Sandberg & Thomas, 2018).

ACADEMY OF MANAGEMENT JOURNAL

SPECIAL RESEARCH FORUM CALL FOR PAPERS

JOINING CONVERSATIONS IN THE SOCIETY ON MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATIONS

When a manuscript is submitted to Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), editors and reviewers frequently ask: Does the study define a new conversation (theory/lens/paradigm) or divert an existing conversation into a meaningfully different area? Conversations about management and organizations are regularly taking place outside the field of management and its journals as well. Those outside of our field and academic halls may conceptualize organizations and management differently, emphasize organizational and managerial characteristics that are relevant to them, and focus on problems that have not received attention in our studies.

The objective of this Special Research Forum (SRF) is to encourage AMJ authors to join conversations on management and organizations that are taking place in societies around the world. Specifically, we would like to publish a collection of outstanding empirical studies that (1) contribute to the solutions of contemporary managerial and organizational problems and (2) introduce topics to AMJ readers that are seen as important outside of our field but are understudied by management scholars. Examples of such topics include the effects of caste systems on employment, discrimination, socioeconomic status and class in organizations, sexual harassment, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, organizational values, labor strikes, artificial intelligence, global health inequities, the movement of workforce across borders, bribery, political influence, private politics, transnational organizations, interconnected economic systems, and the organizational implications of national conflicts, wars, and international trade agreements and sanctions.

Consistent with AMJ’s mission, we seek to publish original, insightful, interesting, important, and theoretically bold studies that employ qualitative, quantitative, field, laboratory, meta-analytic, mixed, or other empirical methods. In addition to making strong empirical and theoretical contributions, submissions to the SRF are expected to explain how practitioners may help solve problems related to the research. In other words, authors are asked to shift their discussions from the traditional practical implications of their studies to proposing solutions to the underlying problems.

It is our hope that this SRF will attract research that goes beyond interestingness and takes on the difficult task of settling current debates in the society by developing new theories, applying existing theories to new problems, collecting and analyzing relevant data, and reporting credible findings.

TIMELINE AND SUBMISSION

Submissions are due between November 1 and November 30, 2020. Contributors should follow the directions for manuscript submission described in “Information for Contributors” in the front of each issue of AMJ and on AMJ's Contributor Information Page:

http://aom.org/Publications/AMJ/Information-for-Contributors.aspx.

Submitted manuscripts will be handled by the incoming editorial team of AMJ. The members of the team are:

Laszlo Tihanyi (Editor elect); Katherine DeCelles and Jennifer Howard-Grenville (Deputy Editors); and Andrew Carton, Amanda Cowen, Ilya Cuypers, Luis Diestre, Lindred Greer, Denis Grégoire, Ivona Hideg, Bart de Jong, Andrew Knight, Cindy Muir (Zapata), Andrew Nelson, Floor Rink, Matthew Semadeni, Marco Tortoriello, Elizabeth Umphress, Gurneeta Vasudeva, Heather Vough, Ingo Weller, Daphne W. Yiu, and Tammar B. Zilber (Associate Editors).

Borderlands: The Internationalisation Of Higher Education Teaching PracticesES

Expressions of Interest (Edited collection) - SPRINGER - Editors: Deborah Lock, Andrea Caputo, Paul Igwe, Dieu Hack-Polay - EOI Submission deadline: 30th September 2020 - Expected publication: Spring 2022

The history of education is one of creating, sharing and exploiting knowledge. Through the practices of Socrates, St Paul and the scholars of the Indian Rigvedic era, the notion of a knowledgeable wanderer aka a mobile academic (White, 2017) who shapes and influences communities through teaching emerges. This wandering scholar becomes increasingly important as borders and boundaries become blurred and virtual citizenship starts to impact on ways of working. Being able to teach seamlessly across cultures and political divides will be critical to ensuring a thriving higher education sector. This book aims to capture the impact of academic mobility on the universality of teaching practices which have been informed by academics’ original cultures being modified to align with those of a host culture. Irrespective of any underlying incentives or motives – intellectual, economic and or lifestyle (Kim, 2017; Florida, 2004), issues such entering existing communities of practice (Xiaoli et al, 2010), intellectual isolation (Pels, 2000), cultural dissonances and local-national geopolitical constraints can be an obstacle to effective acculturation and result in educational poverty in terms of compromised diversity and inclusivity.

Dynamic Capabilities: New Ideas, Microfoundations, and Criticism

Special Issue Journal of Management & Organization Call for Papers 2021. Submission Deadline for the Special Issue: 30th January 2021.

Background to the Special Issue
The dynamic capabilities framework “was created with an ambitious agenda in mind, namely, to provide a general framework to help scholars and practitioners understand the foundations of firm- level competitive advantage and associated enterprise value creation and maintenance” (Teece 2014, p. 328). We have seen much progress to come closer to this vision including a healthy and critical debate on the theoretical underpinnings of dynamic capabilities, their microfoundations, their measurement and policy implications.
In this special issue, we call for papers of conceptual or empirical nature that advance our thinking on dynamic capabilities. We invite research that tackles pertinent issues in relation to the theoretical underpinnings of dynamic capabilities and their microfoundations. One of these theoretical issues has been triggered by DiStefano, Peteraf, and Verona (2010) with their bibliometric analysis that revealed a divide of the intellectual camps around Teece and Eisenhardt discussing dynamic capabilities (see also Peteraf, DiStefano, Verona, 2013; Arndt and Pierce, 2018). We need to better understand and show the empirical implications of their findings.

Read more

Other recent contributions to the dynamic capabilities literature have applied a microfoundations approach (Hallberg & Felin, 2020; Kurtmollaiev, 2020), linking explanatory mechanisms at the micro- level to macro-level organizational processes and outcomes (Barney & Felin, 2013; Devinney, 2013; Felin et al., 2012, 2013; Foss & Pedersen, 2016). In the context of dynamic capabilities, a microfoundational approach would involve unpacking the processes by which dynamic capabilities are created, expressed and transformed within organizations. What is the role of dynamic managerial capabilities in this context (Adner and Helfat, 2003)? We are in need of innovative empirical approaches to tackle these issues.
There is a dearth of research outlining the policy implications of dynamic capability research. With the exception of work by Teece and Helfat and co-authors, there are few inquiries showing the value capturing potential of dynamic capabilities (Teece, 2018; Helfat and Raubitschek, 2018) and their implications for anti-trust (Sidak and Teece, 2009). We attest that there is more room for inquiries exploring these themes.
The dynamic capabilities framework has received criticism and in particular regarding the clarity of its main constructs (Kurtmollaiev, 2020) as well as the difficulty of specifying initial conditions (Hallberg & Felin, 2020). As recent contribution to this ongoing conversation illustrate, the multi-level and dynamic nature of phenomena the dynamic capabilities framework seeks to explain has been insufficiently acknowledged. Possibly, work from specific dynamic capabilities such as absorptive capacity or ambidexterity could help closing these gaps.

6th International Conference on Management and Organization

INTEGRATING ORGANIZATIONAL RESEARCH: INDIVIDUAL, TEAM, ORGANIZATIONAL, AND MULTILEVEL PERSPECTIVES

SINGLE- AND CROSS-LEVEL ORGANIZATIONAL RESEARCH: THEORY, METHOD AND PRACTICE

We are witnessing an ever-increasing amount of multilevel research in organizational studies that integrates delineated research domains and offers new lenses for understanding business practice. The purpose and scope of this conference is to identify, discuss, and grapple with single- and cross-level theory, research and method issues in order to make substantive progress in our understanding of the multilevel nature of organizations. 

Read more

We strive to provide much-needed synthesis of underlying theories and methodological approaches within the loosely coupled community of organizational scholars by taking account of the fact that micro phenomena are embedded in macro contexts, and macro phenomena often emerge through the interaction and dynamics of lower-level elements. Such an approach may add depth and richness to our theoretical reasoning and likewise improve conversations between researchers and practitioners by providing insightful details concerning how organizations operate and behave.
