Internationalization in the Information Age
In particular, we aim to encourage a multidisciplinary understanding of these issues by integrating IB more closely with research in progress in organization studies, and approaches from economic sociology, international economics, strategy, management and others. The objective of the special issue is to develop a finer-grained analysis of how the nature, boundaries and organizational forms of the MNE have adapted to more recent technological and institutional changes. We hope that this collection of papers will contribute to the ongoing yet still inconclusive dialogue among scholars in these disciplines, with the aim of constructing a more unified body of theory and a common epistemology for thinking about the continuing processes of transformation of IB activity. Hence, we welcome both theoretical and empirical contributions, and papers adopting either a single or multi-level analysis.
All manuscripts will be reviewed as a cohort for this special issue. Manuscripts must be submitted in the window between December 17, 2013, and December 31, 2013, at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jibs. All submissions will go through the JIBS regular double-blind review process and follow the standard norms and processes.
