I am pleased to share with you the Table of Contents for MOR Volume 12, Issue 3. This issue features a vigorous exchange on the importance of the institutional explanation of Chinese outward investments as initially discussed in the paper by Peter Buckley, Pei Yu, Qing Liu, Surrender Munjal, and Pan Tai. The issue also includes a paper by Yunzhou Du, Phillip H. Kim and Howard Aldrich on new venture performance in transition economies. The issue also features the first Letter to the Editor by Steven Shinjin Zhou and Abby Jingzi Zhou. The letter relates the legend of Dragon and the Phoenix [fenghuang 凤凰] as possibly the indigenous antecedent of the Composition Based View management practice described in Luo and Child (2015, Management and Organization Review, 11(3): 379-411).
We are also excited to share with you the newly redesigned MOR-Cambridge University Website with improved search functions, the latest in MOR news, and links to MOR social media updates.
We hope you enjoy reading this issue’s interesting and important articles, and will share the articles with your colleagues doing research in similar areas!
With best wishes,
Arie Y. Lewin
