Series: Advances in International Management

Advances in International Management (AIM)is an Elsevier/JAI research series devoted to advancing the cross-border study of organizations and management practices from a global, regional, or comparative perspective, with emphasis on interdisciplinary inquiry that integrates ideas from multiple academic disciplines. It publishes conceptual and empirical papers that deal with international topics from any area within the management field, including strategy, organization theory and behavior, human resource management, business ethics, entrepreneurship, technology management, and others. The organizations studied can be domestic or multinational, and the level of analysis can be macro or micro. To be accepted for publication, a paper must make a significant contribution to advancing knowledge about international management through some combination of new theoretical insights, managerial application, methodology, or data. AIM has a particular interest in publishing the following types of manuscripts: (1) Comprehensive, state-of-the-art literature reviews that integrate diverse research streams and identify promising directions for future investigations. (2) Analytical essays that offer new conceptual models or theoretical perspectives and use those frameworks as a foundation for developing research propositions. (3) Empirical articles that report results from exploratory or hypothesis-testing studies based on quantitative and/or qualitative methodologies. (4) Methodological papers that refine existing methodologies or develop new ones for investigating particular issues or topics central to international management research.
