Submit Your Research on Liabilities of Newness or Smallness!

red-lady-1199922-mGroup and Organization Management is calling for submissions that provide important conceptual and empirical insights about liabilities of newness or smallness for their upcoming Special Issue entitled “New Advantage and Liability Sources in Entrepreneurial Firms: Assessing Progress and Exploring Possibilities.” The issue will be guest edited by Hans Landström of Lund University and Franz Lohrke of Samford University.

GOM 39(6)_Covers.inddThis Special Issue seeks to examine if and how critical issues related to liabilities of newness and liabilities of smallness have changed, given recent technological innovations and other trends. Do new ventures still face the same daunting survival odds scholars first asserted a half century ago or are they innovative, flexible organizations that attract customers, suppliers, and investors? Are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) unable to compete effectively with or can they respond to changing competitive environments better than their larger counterparts?

Some possible topics include:

  • Strategic management
  • Public policy
  • Technology and innovation
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Ethical and legal issues

The submission window will be open between June 30 and August 31, 2015. For more information, including how to submit, click here. Want to have all the latest news and research from Group and Organization Management sent directly to your inbox? Click here to sign up for e-alerts!
