CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS

ENTREPRENEURIAL ECOSYSTEMS MEET INNOVATION SYSTEMS

Editors: Alexandra Tsvetkova, Jana Schmutzler, Rhiannon Pugh

Preliminary approval received from Edward Elgar Publishers for an edited book

In a new edited book we seek to explore the similarities and differences between the Innovation Systems (IS) and Entrepreneurial Ecosystems (EE) approaches in their treatment of common research topics. Our broader goals are (1) to advance the discourse by bridging the two research traditions through the lessons one perspective can learn from the other and (2) to expand the frontiers of current knowledge by encouraging research into previously unexplored areas.

To this end, we invite extended abstract submissions for empirical, theoretical and review chapters that try to bridge the literatures on innovation systems (IS) or entrepreneurial ecosystems (EE) within the blocks of topics listed below.

Block I – Bridging the IS and EE perspectives: papers that bridge the IS and EE perspectives:

•             theoretical contributions, which – by combining the two approaches – advance our current knowledge;

•             critical reviews of the literature that explore similarities, differences, limitations and areas of overlap;

•             any other types of contributions that fall within this area, e.g. explorations of various topics made explicitly from the two perspectives.

Block II – Sustainable development and inclusive growth: empirical research which explores - from the IS or EE perspectives:

-              the ways entrepreneurship and innovation contribute and shape sustainable development and inclusive growth;

-              social innovation and social entrepreneurship;

-              responsible innovation and responsible entrepreneurship;

-              possible limitations of the EE or IS perspectives to adequately explain any topics listed above.

Block III – The informal economy: empirical contributions that adopt systems approach to the study of:

-              the informal sector in general;

-              frugal innovation;

-              informal entrepreneurship and informal innovation.

Submission, review and publication

Please submit extended chapter abstracts (800-1,000 words) together with a full list of contributors and a tentative title to Alexandra Tsvetkova (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) no later than Sunday, August 19th, 2018.  The title, the list of authors, their affiliations and references (if any) are excluded from the word count.

The editors will screen all submissions for clarity, relevance and expected contribution to the book theme. Acceptance notifications will be sent out on September 3, 2018; chapter submission deadline is January 13th, 2019. We have discussed the book plan with an Edward Elgar editor and received a preliminary approval. We expect to sign a book contract in October 2018 with expected publication in Fall 2019 –Winter 2010.
