Call for Chapters

Chapter contributions are invited from leading global scholars, eminent experts and researchers in the field of entrepreneurship for an exciting new book "Global Entrepreneurship Research Based on GEM Dataset", to be published in 2020. This book will be submitted to Springer for publication. Previous books based on similar call for chapters have been published by Springer in  their book series 'Contributions to Management Science' which has been recently accepted to SCOPUS. All chapters will undergo a full double-blind peer review process (with reviewers selected from inside and outside of the volume contributors) as well as plagiarism check to verify the originality of written work, and the final decision to include any chapter will be dependent on criteria established by the volume editor and Springer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               l

Entrepreneurship, as an important multifaceted economic and social phenomenon, a contemporary discipline, and a national strategy, has been studied and researched by policymakers and scholars in both developed and developing economies, mostly involved with the Global Entrepreneurship  Monitor (GEM). GEM is a research consortium of universities for global study of entrepreneurship. The GEM model recognizes entrepreneurial attitudes, activity, and aspiration as dynamic interactive components of national entrepreneurial environments, and entrepreneurial activity as a continuous process rather than as individual events. It provides an account of entrepreneurial activity in member countries, comprising societal attitudes and perceptions, entrepreneurial propensity, entrepreneurial intentions, early-stage entrepreneurial activity, established business activity, entrepreneurial employee activity, and business discontinuance.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       l

In January 2019 GEM celebrated its 20th annual data collection cycle, i.e., twenty years of consistently collecting primary data among the adult population in many countries across the globe. GEM produces indicators on entrepreneurial mindsets, entrepreneurial activity and conditions for entrepreneurship, and has helped to better understand links between institutions, entrepreneurship and economic development and well-being.                                                                                                                                                          l

GEM's focus on individual-level participation enables its research to reveal a range of demographic and other characteristics about entrepreneurs. It also makes possible an assessment of the level of inclusiveness in an economy, which can assist policy makers in  targeting effective  interventions aimed at increasing participation as well as productivity in the economy. The GEM model explicitly acknowledges that environmental factors (social, cultural, political, and economic) are influential in creating unique business and entrepreneurial contexts. Annually, each economy participating in the GEM cycle surveys at least 36 key experts or informants. Based on this National Experts Survey (NES), it considers the national, and the country-level insights into the entrepreneurial framework conditions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             l

So far, GEM has collected data in more than 100 economies. This has accumulated to a dataset with some three million data points. Academic research based on GEM data has emerged rapidly with many academic articles published worldwide in the recent years. This indicates a very high potential of chapter contributors and readers for this book, making it a unique and exciting new book.                                                                                                                                                                              l

The objective of this contributed volume is to present entrepreneurship research based on GEM dataset, sharing essential insights into the status quo of global entrepreneurship, delivering perspectives on entrepreneurial attitudes, behaviors, aspirations and ecosystems, investigating the link between entrepreneurship and development, providing a remarkable opportunity for development of new entrepreneurship and international business theories, studying dynamics, strengths and weaknesses, trends and implications of entrepreneurship worldwide, and identifying opportunities and threats facing it, through a wealth of insights by outstanding experts in the field. It is also hoped that the study will pave the way to global development and peace.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             l

A chapter submission should be based on rigorous theoretical, analytical or empirical research, analyzing and discussing (preferably about 6000 to 8000 words) some aspect(s) of entrepreneurship in any specific country, region, or group of countries, including comparative studies, case studies, research and analysis based on GEM data (potentially combined with other sources of data - e.g., globally available data). Moreover, following GEM, it can also consider entrepreneurial attitudes, mindsets and competencies; entrepreneurial behaviors, startups and motivations; entrepreneurial aspirations and consequences, business growth and innovation; entrepreneurial ecosystem and  business environment improvement; etc.                                                                                                                                                                                                             l

The deadline for submission of a chapter for this volume is mid-October 2019. If you are interested  in submitting a chapter, please express your interest by proposing a title at first, and then proceed to submit your chapter (before the above deadline), and forward your title, manuscript, cover letter, and any queries to the editor: nezamfaghih@gmail.com. The manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter including all author affiliations and the paper title, stating that the manuscript has not been submitted or published elsewhere.                                                                                                                                                                                                 l
