A recent review of entrepreneurship literature considered cognitions 
and emotions as the hottest topics (Chandra, 2018). Research has also 
shown that both cognitive and emotional processes are important in 
explaining how entrepreneurs perceive opportunities, evaluate them and 
ultimately act upon these opportunities (Shepherd et al., 2015). While a
 considerable number of studies have already been conducted in respect 
of the cognitive aspects of entrepreneurial actions and somewhat fewer 
in respect of emotional ones, we believe that there is plenty of room 
for further research. 

Some recent papers show the possible directions of research on 
cognitions and entrepreneurship. For instance, Foo (2011) suggested a 
focus on the link between emotions, cognitions and entrepreneurial 
behavior. Shepherd (2015) proposed to study the recursive relationship 
between emotions and cognition, and its implications for entrepreneurial
 behavior. Similarly, Cardon et al. (2012) raised the need to study the 
link between emotions and entrepreneurial teams and their relationships 
with stakeholders, whereas Nabi et al. (2017) recommend an investigation
 into the link between emotions/cognition and entrepreneurship 
education. Following the notion that entrepreneurship is typically a 
group experience, Cardon et al. (2017) offered a construct of ‘team 
entrepreneurial passion’, and called for further research on collective 
emotions and their individual and team level outcomes. Lastly, Chandra 
(2018) called for further research looking at entrepreneurial cognitions
 from diverse perspectives which involve not only cross-cultural 
differences but also spiritual or normative values.

Against this background, it becomes clear that the topic of emotions 
and cognitions offers many new avenues for research. Acknowledging these
 numerous research opportunities, we would like to invite submissions 
which deal with cognition and emotions in different phases of 
entrepreneurial activity, from the phase of entrepreneurial intentions 
up to the phase of exit or succession - papers that will study these 
processes in different contexts and will look at them from diverse 
perspectives. We would particularly like to welcome contributions from 
less-developed countries, which have thus far been understudied in 
respect of cognitions and emotions issues.

All methodological approaches are welcome, including qualitative, 
quantitative and experimental. Both empirical and review papers are 
welcome although, irrespective of the approach, we look for papers that 
make a clear contribution to the field and show future research
