Statement of Editorial Policy

Cross Cultural & Strategic Management (CCSM), is dedicated to providing a forum for the publication of high-quality cross cultural and strategic management research in the global context. CCSM is interdisciplinary in nature and welcomes submissions from scholars from international business, management, marketing and other disciplines, such as anthropology, economics, political science, psychology and sociology. 

The goal of CCSM is to publish discerning, theoretically grounded, evidence-based and cutting-edge research on issues relevant to all aspects of global management influenced by, related to and/or affecting the crossing of cultures. CCSM is especially interested in theoretical and empirical papers that investigate new and unique ideas and/or are multilevel (micro-meso-macro) and/or are multidisciplinary in nature. Research papers submitted to CCSM are expected to include an answer to the question: What is the contribution of this paper to the literature and the field of international business and managing in the global context?

CCSM accepts theoretical/conceptual and empirical papers based on quantitative and qualitative research endeavors that advance our overall knowledge of international business/international management, with a special focus on strategic and managerial phenomenon at the intersection of culture. This includes research that yields positive, neutral or negative findings as long as these studies are based on sound research methodology, and have a good command of the theory/literature that pertains to the phenomena under investigation.  These studies should also provide a more in-depth interpretation of the reason(s) for the findings and include more detailed recommendations for future research directions.
