As a leading entrepreneurship scholar, former editor of Entrepreneurship & Regional Development and an ISBE fellow, Alistair Anderson promoted a perspective on entrepreneurship strongly attached to a social science perspective of entrepreneuring – conceptualized as a socially embedded process and a set of practice(s). To celebrate Alistair’s legacy, Entrepreneurship & Regional Development Journal launches this year a Best Paper Award to honour his contribution to the field of entrepreneurship. To be eligible for this award, the paper must be lead authored by an early-career researcher, who has either recently completed the PhD or is about to complete their degree. The full article submitted and presented at ISBE Conference will be influenced by Alistair’s work, and will offer a strong theoretical contribution to our understanding of entrepreneurship as a social phenomenon. The Entrepreneurship & Regional Development Editorial board will select the finalists and the best paper winner. The prize-winning paper will be offered a fast-track opportunity for publication in ERD and mentoring from the ERD editorial team. We look forward to receiving submissions.
The Abstracts submission window for ISBE2021 will be opening very soon.
