Call for papers: "Innovation Momentum of Emerging and Newly Developed Economies"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Services Sciences.

Emerging economies such as China and India have been considered as major participants in today’s global economy (Luo & Tung, 2007). In addition, newly developed economies such as Korea have improved efficiency in various high-value-added industries (Hsiao & Park, 2005). Given the increasing significance of emerging and newly developed markets, considering the influence of these areas is integral to explaining the business trends in new value creation.

Following this notion, this special issue aims to examine how emerging or newly developed market firms have contributed to the global economy based on their innovative products, services and processes. Original research papers addressing the innovation in emerging or newly developed economies using proper analysis are highly welcome. Authors are expected to provide theoretical frameworks, empirical research or case analyses of business practices in regard to the research topic.
