    * Call for Letters of Inquiry for IJMR Special Issue on "Grand Synthesis - Unifying the Fragmented Science of Business for All Stakeholders"

    Flore Bridoux (Erasmus), Mike Hitt (Texas A&M), Marc van Essen (South Carolina), Carina Hallin (ITU Copenhagen), and Weihua Zhou (Zhejiang University) and I are guest-editing the International Journal of Management Reviews (IJMR) Special Issue on "Grand Synthesis - Unifying the Fragmented Science of Business for All Stakeholders." Please find the full Call for papers. We are not doing just another call for papers. We are requesting revolutionary blueprints of our shared future. Specifically, we call for both theory reviews and method reviews to arrive at revolutionary blueprints for the future of business and management scholarship. We call for reviews of theories and methods to create an integrated knowledge system and enable large-scale, interdisciplinary research collaborations across traditional knowledge silos (e.g., economics, sociology, psychology, operations research, etc.). We encourage submissions within the scope of conceptualizing, measuring, predicting, and managing the well-being of multiple stakeholders (e.g., investors, customers, employees, suppliers, and the community) simultaneously.

    Our guest editors will share our early feedback on your ideas if you send us a letter summarizing your proposed idea by September 30th, 2021 (extended deadline). Early feedback will help you develop your ideas towards our particular goal of arriving at an integrated knowledge system of business science concerning all stakeholders. A letter of inquiry is optional, but incorporating the editors' early feedback will likely increase the fit of the paper to the particular goal of this Call and thus strengthen the chance of acceptance. Full submissions are due March 31st, 2022.

    International Journal of Management Reviews (IJMR) is one of the most impactful peer-reviewed journals in management and business (2020 Impact factor: 13.419, ranked 2/153 in business and 3/226 in management).

    If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me or any guest editors.

    Thank you.
