FAMILY BUSINESS REVIEW
SPECIAL ISSUE: PSYCHOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF MANAGEMENT IN FAMILY FIRMS
Submission deadline: February 28, 2019
Following an open call for special issue proposals, Family Business Review is launching a new, interdisciplinary special issue guest edited by a multi-disciplinary team of scholars from different disciplines, bridging the psychology and management fields with a focus on family firms.
One approach to enhancing current knowledge of family businesses is to explore the characteristics of actual judgement and decision processes within such firms (De Bondt & Thaler, 1995). These processes are informed by psychology research, which aims to describe, predict, explain, and change human and social behavior (Pastorino & Doyle-Portillo, 2013), and has the potential to align with the boundary-spanning nature of family business research (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018). Thus, psychology research may enable family business scholars to extend and enrich the current predictions about family firm behavior.
The guest editorial team is seeking papers from scholars from different fields that make use of psychological research and especially, research on the psychology of social relationships, to advance family business studies.
For questions please contact any of the guest editors.
FBR is a highly ranked journal of business (#15/121) with impact factor 3.824, devoted to research on the dynamics of family-influenced enterprises, including firms ranging in size from the very large to the relatively small.
