Call for Chapters

Proposals Submission Deadline: June 30, 2020

Profitable business opportunities have become increasingly difficult due to contemporary globalization and the resulting global hypercompetition. This publication will provide the scholar-practitioner in particular with new perspectives of current business trends and issues that can be pursued from an academic as well as practitioner context.


This book should be published because it enhances work already completed in the field in 2014; namely, the Web of Science- and Scopus-indexed publication, "Handbook of Research on Global Business Opportunities". The other proposed topics not covered in this 2014 book will add value to the fields of business opportunities and related issues in an era of global hypercompetition.

Target Audience

The target audience for this publication is scholar-practitioners who need an updated resource for consideration within a single volume. The secondary target audience is graduate students of business and related subjects.
