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.
