Subject: [LDRNET] CALL FOR AUTHORS: Encyclopedia of New Venture Management
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to a new 1-volume reference work on the skills and characteristics of successful entrepreneurship.
New ventures often are launched into highly dynamic environments characterized by rapid technological change, inherent unpredictability, and an uncertain cash flow. Such ventures often require rapid growth to succeed.
While new ventures offer those who initiate them a high degree of independence, excitement, and potential for great reward, they also offer high risk, stress, and greater potential for failure. Thus, it takes a special set of skills, techniques, and temperament to succeed. These skills, along with the potential risks and rewards and environmental settings and characteristics, are explored in the Encyclopedia of New Venture Management.
The work will contain approximately 150 signed entries with Cross-References
(“see-also”) and suggestions for Further Readings.
We are now making assignments due October 15, 2010.
This comprehensive project will be published by SAGE Reference and will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a print and digital product available to students via the library’s online services. The General Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr. Matthew Marvel at Western Kentucky University’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
If you are interested in contributing to this outstanding reference, it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature. Moreover, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits. SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed product for contributions totaling 10,000 words or more.
The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step we will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can select topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally, Style and Submission Guidelines will be provided that detail article specifications.
If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with the Encyclopedia of New Venture Management, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a brief summary of your academic/publishing credentials in related issues.
Thanks very much.
