The Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, a fairly new publication, but one with an A-list set of editors that should entice most academics in this area, has released a call for a special issue on "Knowledge Spillovers and Strategic Entrepreneurship."
This special issue provides an opportunity to advance our understanding of the inter-linkages between knowledge spillovers and strategic entrepreneurship. Accordingly, we call for papers that help achieve one or more of the following objectives:
- Enhancing our understanding of how knowledge externalities link to literature in strategic management and entrepreneurship to identify boundary conditions relating to value creation and appropriation.
- Creating inter-linkages between knowledge spillovers and theoretical lenses such as networks, real options, technology and innovation strategy, spatial agglomeration, organizational learning and diffusion of innovations among others in order to explore issues fundamental to strategic entrepreneurship
- Developing insights into mechanisms that facilitate or inhibit knowledge spillovers across or within organizational boundaries, including but not limited to individual level mobility, employee entrepreneurship, co-location in geographical or technological space, inter-firm and intra-firm networks, and investments to facilitate vicarious learning
- Identifying the potential of knowledge spill-ins, where incumbent organizations may effectively benefit from knowledge spillovers that originate from entrants, and in the process enhance their own competitiveness.
- Exploring the linkages between intellectual property, organizational learning and knowledge spillovers to explain innovation outcomes in inventor networks, and growth dynamics in emerging technology clusters, or across national borders.

George Mason, Clemson, and the College of Charleston are sponsoring a workshop this fall for researchers doing work around the topic of "business creation." Most of this research will come from the Panel Study on Entrepreneurial Dynamics, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, or one of the many scholarly projects that have been inspired in-part by this line of research. The conference will take place October 23-25 in Arlington, Virginia, with a deadline for scholars interested in participating of September 1, 2009.
This particular workshop has the following focus:
- Scholars analyzing longitudinal data sets on business creation will have an opportunity to meet and discuss their efforts as “works in progress” as they are developed for submission to peer review journals. Those working with panel data from Australia, Canada, China, Latvia, Netherlands, Norway,
and Sweden are encouraged to attend.
- Those designing and implementing longitudinal studies of business creation will have an opportunity to learn from the experiences of those who have already implemented such panel studies.
From conversations with some of the organizers and the language of the call, this workshop will have a heavy emphasis on helping researchers in the process of creating their own country-specific longitudinal data collection efforts to get off of the ground through peer exchange and harmonization with other efforts. Read more about the workshop.

The Academy of Management (AOM) New Doctoral Student Consortium
will take place Saturday, August 8, 2009, before the start of the AOM's annual conference in Chicago, Illinois. While I don't see much of a focus on data resources on the agenda, it's a topic that I suspect will come up in the "Research and Scholarship" session in the afternoon. Jerry Katz at Saint Louis University will be a presenter in that session on entrepreneurship and is extremely knowledgable about data in entrepreneurship.

As a follow-up to my data post on family-owned firms, a call for papers on the topic.
Call For Papers: International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing (IJEV)
Special Issue on: "The Family-Driven Entrepreneurial Venture: Is There a Link Between the Family Background and the Entrepreneurial Behaviour of a Family Business?"
Matti Koiranen, University of Jyväskylä, Finland
Stefan Märk, University of Innsbruck, Austria
Ilse Matser, Utrecht University, The Netherlands
Deadline: August 30, 2009
This special issue seeks manuscripts that tackle the question: “What is the current state of the art in entrepreneurship and family business research”? Since Landsberg (1982) revealed that there are more benefits for a company than having just one entrepreneur, an increasing number of researchers have tried to integrate the “family” concept into their work.

It's not a top-tier publication, to my knowledge, but the special issue on "Ethnicity, Cultural Diversity and Entrepreneurship"
from the Global Business and Economics Review
might be of interest to scholars looking at differential entrepreneurship experiences by demographic. We continue to find big differences across different demographic groups in the United States in their entrepreneurial experiences such as recent articles touching on immigration
or the litany of research looking at different minority populations from venture capital
to broader research
on minority entrepreneurship.
