Submission deadline for abstracts - July 30, 2014

The editorial team of Advances in the Study of Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Economic Growth is inviting manuscript proposals for volume 25 in this series:  The Challenges of Ethics & Entrepreneurship in the Global Environment

AISEIEG is published by Emerald Publishing and is edited by Sherry Hoskinson of the University of Arizona & Donald F. Kuratko of Indiana University.  The series is a product of organized university-based entrepreneurship centers and programs through the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (GCEC).   The GCEC stands as the premier leadership organization addressing the emerging topics of importance to the world’s university-based centers for entrepreneurship. The series has led the field with insightful and forward looking perspectives on topics for 25 years.  Papers in this volume will focus on topics, perspectives, challenges, and visions developed by research faculty in the area of entrepreneurship as well as in ethics in light of dramatic changes across the global environment of entrepreneurship and innovation.  Contributions to the volume will be peer reviewed. 

The complex global environment for entrepreneurship and innovation has experienced significant change during the past decade requiring a deeper understanding of the ethical challenges due to economic, capital, technological, environmental, and social forces is at the nexus of these forces.  Research faculties in entrepreneurship as well as ethics are positioned as critical agents in the discovery and dissemination of the newest perspectives on ethics in the entrepreneurship domain. This volume seeks to build a body of scholarship specific to ethics and entrepreneurship by providing the latest perspectives on how ethics is impacted by or impacting the entrepreneurship field.

Scholarly papers from research faculty that examine the most current topics, perspectives, challenges, and visions in the area of ethics and entrepreneurship are encouraged.  Papers should reflect the sense of urgency and commitment to create a generation of ethical entrepreneurial leaders.  It is the goal of the volume editors to have these contributions create a framework for the ethical challenges involved with entrepreneurship and innovation within today’s global environment.

Flexibility in the structure and design of papers is encouraged. For instance, papers are welcome from a theoretical or conceptual orientation, or are empirically-based in nature, as well as those based on existing work.  However, it is important that any contribution retain a focus on the ethical challenges within the environment of entrepreneurship and innovation. The length of papers should not exceed 40 double-spaced pages including references, tables, and graphs.
