Scope of the Journal

EJIM is the first international journal devoted entirely to fostering an understanding of issues

in international management theory and practice in the newly expanded European arena –

including underrepresented regions of Northern, Central, and Eastern Europe – and to

providing both conceptual and functional implications useful for the further development of

research, teaching practices, and managerial techniques.

EJIM also solicits literature that allows for a broader interpretation of research – it welcomes

not only papers which adhere to the most common research standards (i.e., largely based

on hypothesis testing using quantitative methods), but also those that introduce a more

European perspective through qualitative and interdisciplinary contributions.

Subject coverage:

EJIM is devoted to the publication of both

conceptual/theoretical and empirical articles

pertaining to all aspects of international management

in Europe, including, but not limited to:

• Environment of International Management in

Most journals in the management field that

claim to be international actually reflect U.S.

thinking. The European Journal of International

Management has shown itself refreshingly

international in its outlook, and in the access it

offers to contributions from the rest of the

world, extending way beyond its European


Geert Hofstede

Professor Emeritus

University of Maastricht, the Netherlands

The European Journal of International

Management is now leading the way for

research in the field of international business

and management. It is making a significant

contribution to the scholarly leaders in the field,

with contributions from leading academics

throughout the world. This journal is a "must"

for anyone interested in international business

and management, and top rate science.
