Dear Colleagues,

We are guest editing a special issue for the International Journal of Sustainable Strategic Management(IJSSM). The journal is published by Inderscience Publishers, a UK/Switzerland publication ( that seeks to inform organizational leaders and policy-makers with research from across the intellectual disciplines.

The theme of the special issue is "Opportunities and Challenges for Growth within the Global Landscape." Specifically, the objective of the special issue is to examine contemporary thinking and best practices for organizations and their strategies for growth and development. We are looking to publish both theoretically-grounded and practice-oriented papers. From the IJSSM website: "The objective of IJSSM is to serve as an interface between business leaders, policy makers, economists, and management scholars. IJSSM seeks contributions with global relevance concerned with organizational and economic sustainability. IJSSM publishes original and review papers, technical reports, case studies, book reviews, and research notes." Contributions from diverse perspectives are welcome, but, for this issue, each one should blend issues related to growth with sustainability.
