The Journal of Management Studies (JMS) has issued a call for paper on “‘Theories from the Lab’: How Research on Science Commercialization can Contribute to Management Studies.” The special issue points to an important origin of the scientific knowledge and technology being commercialized – the research laboratory. And it connotes our belief that the science commercialization context can serve as a laboratory for researchers seeking to advance our understanding of key issues in management and organization studies.
The special issue will be edited by Riccardo Fini (University of Bologna, Italy), Einar Rasmussen (University of Nordland Business School, Norway), Johan Wiklund (Syracuse University, USA), and Mike Wright (Imperial College Business School London, UK). Deadline for manuscript submission is 30th September 2016. Find the full call for papers here.
