Call for papers: "International Issues in Entrepreneurship"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business.

The aim of this special issue is to continue the work of Dana and Wright (2009) by highlighting the emerging research priorities for international issues in entrepreneurship. The objective is to condense into a single issue the matters that researchers and policy makers consider important in the international arena of entrepreneurship.

Many researchers are looking at the role of social capital in entrepreneurship and the international directions that this provides (Light and Dana, 2013). This has become important in the internationalisation process of firms, and also to researchers interested in entrepreneurship from an international perspective (Ratten, Dana, Han and Welpe, 2007).
