Call for papers: "Evidence-based Processes in Business and Systems"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Business and Systems Research.

Evidence-based practice means making decisions based on the best available facts, i.e. scientific findings and unbiased organisational facts. This is an emerging area in management based on critical thinking and explicitly using the best available contemporary and optimal evidence in management and decision making processes.
It has often been observed that evidence-based practices improve the overall quality of managerial decision making through deliberative use of relevant and available scientific information. This field of study has emerged from empiricism with the aim of applying scientific methods to improving managerial decision making processes.
The aim of this special issue is to provide a platform for researchers, scholars, academicians and practitioners from different parts of the globe to discuss various methods of evidence-based practices in business and systems and how to integrate evidence into their own work.
