New Series from AIB:
The AIB-LAT Book Series is an initiative sponsored by the Latin American Chapter of the Academy of International Business that aims to publish books that bring together theory, academic research and research-driven practice in the field of International Business (IB) from, and within, the Latin American region. The AIB-LAT Book Series is expected to become a significant outlet of research-driven knowledge on IB and multinational company (MNC) behavior in the region.
The series invites scientific research and theory that deals with strategies, structures and decision-making processes of MNCs in Latin America; cross-border activities of enterprises such as intra-company trade, investments, finance, technology transfer, people management and innovation; and interactions between MNC enterprises and other relevant actors in Latin-America: organizations, institutions, markets, governments, and indigenous stakeholders.
The series also deals with research on the impact of, and interaction between, the different Latin American cultural, economic, legal, and political settings on activities, strategies, structures and decision-making processes of MNCs. Other topics of interest are cross-country comparative studies of businesses, business processes, contexts and organizational behavior in Latin America and the development of strategic export alliances, and mergers and acquisitions in the Latin American context.
We hope that the AIB-LAT Book Series will serve to inform scholars and practitioners about the current developments of IB theories and research in the region and also awaken the interests of IB scholars to further advance the knowledge and understanding of IB and MNC behavior in Latin America.Top
Call for Proposals for Palgrave Pivot
Publishing across the Humanities, the Social Sciences and Business, Palgrave Pivot introduces an innovative new format for scholarly research. Liberating scholarship from the straitjacket of traditional formats and business models, Palgrave Pivot offers authors the flexibility of publishing at lengths between the journal article and the conventional monograph.
Palgrave Pivot emphasizes speed of delivery as well as innovation. Titles are published within 12 weeks of acceptance with a complete peer-review process. Palgrave Pivot publications are available as digital collections for libraries, including via Palgrave Connect, individual ebooks for personal use, and as digitally-produced print editions.
We are now accepting proposals for Palgrave Pivot, and welcome proposals for works that are:
- focused on new and important research
- at lengths between a typical journal article and a scholarly monograph, in the region of 25-50 thousand words
- authored or edited collections
