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.
