Journal of East West Business Special Issue: Recent, Current and Anticipated Changes in Business and Management in Russia Guest editor: Igor Gurkov (National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow) Submission deadline: 30 July 2014 This special issue of Journal for East-West Business is devoted to the analysis and forecast of the business and management development in Russia. The papers in the issue will look at the least-researched areas of business and management and aim to discover factors that will affect East-West business in the near future. We are especially looking for articles that can provide more insight on the following topics: n Which changes in business philosophy and business policy of Russian companies are expected in the near future? n Which changes in internal management are expected in the near future? n How the local labor markets will react to the current economic conditions? n How foreign companies operating in Russia will shape their strategies in the near future? n What are the recent trends and forecasts for investments of Russian companies abroad? We welcome studies based on qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis, including case studies. In case studies, the names of the companies should not be disguised. Guidance notes 1. Articles should be based on original research and/or innovative analysis. 2. The main findings should not have been published or submitted elsewhere. 3. The editors expect articles to be theoretically informed and to express novel interpretations of the current and anticipated trends in Russian business management. 4. Authors wishing to use social science or managerial instruments of analysis should adapt them so that they allow for dynamic analysis. Articles should explain or predict change across time and not simply examine static conditions.
