Dear esteemed colleagues,
As you may know, the Financial Times is seeking input for updating its FT50 list of leading academic journals. In this cycle, they are soliciting feedback from business school leadership as well as the broader scholarly community. The survey can be found in the link below:
We are writing to ask for your support for the including the Journal of World Business in the FT50 list. Please allow us to explain why we think JWB should be included in the FT50 list, and why it is important for the HR scholars:
Andersson, U. R., Brewster, C. J., Minbaeva, D. B., Narula, R. & Wood, G. T. (2019). The IB/ IHRM interface: Exploring the potential of intersectional theorizing.
Crane, B. & Hartwell, C. J. (2019). Global talent management: A life cycle view of the interaction between human and social capital.
Sarala, R. M., Vaara, E. & Junni, P. (2019). Beyond merger syndrome and cultural differences: New avenues for research on the "human side" of global mergers and acquisitions (M&As).
Liu, Y. & Meyer, K. E. (2020). Boundary spanners, HRM practices, and reverse knowledge transfer: The case of Chinese cross-border acquisitions.
Zhou, A. J., Fey, C. & Yildiz, H. E. (2020). Fostering integration through HRM practices: An empirical examination of absorptive capacity and knowledge transfer in cross-border M&As.
