Dear AIB Members, 

Recently I have been asked to act as a guest editor for JEMI, and I think
you might be interested in, so please let me send you the following call for
papers as a guest editor of this journal: 

"Journal of Entrepreneurship, Management and Innovation" (JEMI), vol. 11

One of the thematic issues of 2015 (vol. 11) will focus on: 


The concept of 'international entrepreneurship' (IE), as one can assume, was
used for the first time in the doctoral dissertation of Tomas Otto Kohn in
1988 at Harvard. It is most probably that it was published for the first
time in the work of J.F. Morrow in the same year. A year later, this notion
appears in scientific publications by various authors, including P.P.
McDougall , who together with B.M. Oviatt developed this theory in the
following years. It can therefore be assumed that the current international
entrepreneurship as an area of research is only 25-30 years old, although
its intensive development occurred only in the first decade of the 21st
century, that is, de facto, a few years ago. IE has been developing very
intensively, however it must be admitted that, apart from some elements of
this school, it is still quite poorly explored and described field in the
