    We welcome paper submissions to our upcoming special issue in International Small Business Journal on 'Mode of International Engagement and the Small Entrepreneurial Firm'.

    For this special issue, we encourage submissions that address some of the unexplored questions regarding modes of international engagement in small and entrepreneurial firms. Although the list below is by no means exclusive, we invite conceptual and empirical submissions that would address the themes on the modes of international engagement activities of small and entrepreneurial firms such as:

    • What are the main theoretical models that explain modes of international engagement behaviour?
    • Considering a microfoundational perspective, what is the role of the entrepreneur, the founding team and the top management team in explaining their modes of international engagement?
    • How can recent advances on modes of international engagement, such as the real option theory, promote relevant research and discussion for small and entrepreneurial firms?
    • What do we know so far regarding modes of international engagement in the international entrepreneurship research and how can we progress this debate?
    • How do advances in micromultinationals' research assist study on the modes of international engagement in international entrepreneurship?
    • What is the extent, nature and justification of modes during switching, retrenching and variation between foreign countries and within the same foreign country over time?
    • What is the role of digital business and online platforms in the choice of international engagement modes for small and entrepreneurial firms?

     

    In addition to quantitative studies, we also encourage papers that deliver greater explanatory power including, yet not limited to, longitudinal, qualitative, ethnographic, contextually sensitive and in-depth explorations of modes of international engagement by small entrepreneurial firms.

     

    Submission Deadline: September 30 2021
