Letter from President 

Dear colleagues and friends,

A new concern for our management research community is emerging: it may become more difficult to conduct field research in management. Based on an investigation conducted by Julienne Brabet, EURAM Fellow and former Vice President, I wish to alert management scholars, in particular those of us who engage in empirical work within organizations. In the name of ethics, bureaucracy may soon fall upon us, in the form of newly created (Ex ante) Research review boards or Ethics boards. These schemes put in place to secure ethical practices for research projects in medicine and biology are being extrapolated to social sciences and new regulations are being increasingly implemented in several countries.   

Obviously, I need to insist from the outset: I will not argue against ethics in academic research in management (nor in any other discipline). Quite the contrary. Like all EURAM members, I am naturally and strongly in favor of integrity of research, protection of personal data, rigor in collecting and analyzing data, and similar non-negotiable requirements of our profession. As investigators, we obviously need to behave in responsible ways, doing no harm and protecting all those involved in our research projects.

However, the heart of the problem here is not the principles of ethics but the way in which these principles are implemented in practice. We received reports from colleagues who had to fill out a 35-page template, with significant amount of information requested in advance about a field study involving rounds of interviews in organizations. No pilot study could start before the case had been reviewed by a formal university Ethics review board. Typical requests included describing the detailed list of those to be interviewed and the questionnaire used, obtaining a signed approval of consent from every single interviewee (this must be informed consent: the title of the project and its objectives are to be specified to fully inform the interviewees – regardless of the potential biases introduced in the responses by doing so), or details about how and where the data will be stored and retrieved (e.g. a safe), etc. Once submitted, the university Ethics review board may or may not approve the research plan, or ask for more information, thus causing delays, loss of opportunities, waste of time and energy. As a consequence, researchers may be tempted to turn away from field studies.

Many colleagues in management research are choosing to work from secondary data, too often to increase productivity and their publications scores to fulfill institutional expectations. Some may become management professors without having had any direct exposure to firms or organizations. In this context, it would seem totally inappropriate to discourage those of our management researcher colleagues eager to engage in field studies away from that path.

Scholarly enquiry requires academic intellectual freedom, unleashing imagination, daring to question both objectives and means to reach them. In the name of Ethics, are we going to lose these principles for a bureaucracy of Virtue?

If you suffer from ex ante research ethics review schemes in your own country and university, I strongly encourage you, as EURAM member, to blow the whistle and share your experience on the matter (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). We have begun to build a knowledge base of university and country regulations regarding ethics in social sciences, please contribute actively! EURAM may then find ways to intervene on the matter, e.g. issuing a position paper and/or opening a public debate in the media. This is typically another way for EURAM to serve our dynamic and engaged community of scholars.

EURAM Annual Conferences


EURAM 2019 Conference – 26-28 June 2019, ICSTE-IUL, Lisbon


First Announcement of Call for Papers: 26 September 2018

Deadline for Paper Submission: 15 January 2019 (2 pm Belgian time)

Authors Registration Deadline: 25 April 2019


Greetings from Lisbon!

Some insights about EURAM 2019 in Lisbon.

We just completed an important milestone on the road towards the 2019 Lisbon Conference.

The Call for Papers has gone out.

Our theme “Exploring the Future of Management: Facts, Fashion and Fado” has been formulated to attract the EURAM community to discuss the big questions that management has to deal in the next decades. Artificial intelligence, Big Data, demographic imbalances such as, in the case of Europe, a decreasing and ageing population are deeply transforming the way we understand and manage organisations. We as management scholars should be able to discuss these problems and others that affect our society.

The next milestone concerns the Call for Reviewers. In order to provide high quality reviews to everybody who submits a paper, we need your help.

We at ISCTE-IUL are looking forward to welcoming you in Lisbon in June 2019.

Routledge has recently introduced two new titles – Macro Talent Management: A Global Perspective on Managing Talent in Developed Markets and Macro Talent Management in Emerging and Emergent Markets: A Global Perspective (both edited by Vlad Vaiman, Paul Sparrow, Randall Shuler, and David G. Collings) – that serve as a guide which orients the reader toward activities that increase their country’s global competitiveness, attractiveness, and economic development through meaningful talent management (TM).  These books bring together leading experts from around the world to address such important Macro TM issues as cross-border flows of talent, diaspora mobility, knowledge flows, global labour markets, policies, etc.  As illustrated in the books, these issues have major implications for organizations, including multinational enterprises and non-governmental organizations, individuals, as well as countries.

Chartaya Nilplub’sresearch paper "Service quality, Perceived Value for Money, AND Student Satisfaction: The Comparative study between Public and Private University in Thailand" was published in Suthiparithat Journal  (Like to Download: http://www.dpu.ac.th/dpurc/journal-read-74-545).
The author is currently working on the new research project "Gastronomy Tourism in Thailand: Case study of Chinese tourists’ patronage on street food vendors."


Marco Bellucci and Giacomo Manetti just published a new book with Routledge, “Stakeholder Engagement and Sustainability Reporting”. This volume contributes, both empirically and theoretically, to the social and environmental accounting literature by studying the various features of stakeholder engagement in sustainability reporting. In a context of growing social and environmental concerns, the role of corporations in encouraging sustainability has drawn increasing attention in recent years. The authors believe that it is more important than ever that large enterprises, on the one hand, take into account the opinion of their stakeholder while defining their strategies and, on the other hand, disclose material and relevant information on their ability to contribute to sustainability while delivering value for all of their stakeholders.



A new book on Social Entrepreneurship and Social innovation is being published by Routledge. Edited by Mario Biggeri, Enrico Testi, Marco Bellucci, H. Thomas R. Persson, and Roel During, this book provides comprehensive and advanced analysis of the characteristics of social entrepreneurship in Europe. It offers innovative, multidisciplinary, up-todate research on the ecosystems of social entrepreneurship, the behavior of social entrepreneurs, their ability to produce social innovation, social capital and social inclusion, and the role of stakeholders in fostering socially oriented businesses. Moreover, it addresses the diversity of the European social enterprise sector from an evolutionary perspective, with particular reference to the rise of social entrepreneurship and the role of new-generation social entrepreneurs throughout Europe.



Dermot Breslin (Sheffield University, UK), Doug Renwick (Nottingham Trent University, UK), and Ilfryn Price (Sheffield Hallam University, UK) have recently had a paper accepted with the European Management Review, entitled ‘Nurturing Novelty: Toulmin's greenhouse, journal rankings and knowledge evolution’. In this paper, the authors argue that the increasing use of journal ranking lists within the European research community has reduced innovation and creativity, biased peer selection processes and constrained the dissemination of knowledge within the academic community. Drawing on the work of philosopher Stephen Toulmin, the authors develop an evolutionary metaphor to conceptualise the research process evolving within a greenhouse. Within this artificial greenhouse environment, favoured ‘branches’ of knowledge flourish at the expense of new conceptual saplings, producing a tree of knowledge which is increasingly unfit to the external world. 


Business, Innovation, and the Arts (Piero Formica and John Edmondson, Editors), 2019
The topic of the book is relevant to current discourses on the nature of innovation, the importance of innovation and entrepreneurship in economic development, the impact of entrepreneurship education, and graduate employability. The role of the arts and humanities in business education and scientific and technical innovation is concerned with the development of soft skills, empathy and imaginative reach. With regard to graduate employability, abilities in such areas as critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity and teamwork are lacking in new graduates. The ability to think imaginatively, see opportunities that others do not see and to experiment with possibilities are crucial attributes, and they are all creative talents that are integral to the artistic and literary endeavour.


Ambivalence in Mentorship (Routledge) is based on research of scores of mentors and protégés in longstanding relationships across career fields. Using case narratives, the book takes a nuanced look at the emotional complexities of their mentorships—the intense passions and hopes that get stirred up in these professional, yet intimate connections as well as the turmoil created by disappointment, betrayal, competition, and the mere readiness to move on. Situating mentorship at the crosshairs of authority and love, the book highlights the interplay of intrapsychic, interpersonal, cultural, and historical forces that drive this relationship to be at once vital and risky. Professionals in social science, business, and management fields will welcome the book for its fresh perspective and voice it gives to both the joys and complicated feelings that attend mentorship.

Book publication (French): Industrie Pharmaceutique, quel avenir?
Author: Dr. Lillia AREZKI
Edition: L'Harmattan


This contemporary, global and engaging textbook covers all the core HRM topics. While there are a large number of excellent HRM textbooks available, there are very few dealing with HRM at a such a concise level. This book has been written not only for 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students who are taking HRM modules for the first time, but also for postgraduate and MBA students who are studying HRM for the first time.  
Rich in pedagogy, features like HRM in the Global Business Environment and HRM and Organizational Performance prepare students for the modern workplace. Video interviews offer a practitioner perspective, allowing students to relate theory to practice, while HRM in the News boxes shine a light on current issues, such as lawsuits against ridesharing company Uber.
Once again, the book is written in easy to understand language and material is presented to highlight the practicality of the issues involved in work and employment. There is a strong emphasis on skills and career development throughout each of the 14 chapters, covering key areas such as HR Analytics, Talent Management and International Human Resource Management. 
The book’s companion website provides extra resources, including videos, self-test questions and more skills development guidance.
The 2nd edition is edited by Dr Ronan Carbery and Dr Christine Cross and is published in October 2018 by Macmillan International Higher Education .

Forthcoming book by Dr. Steven P.M. de Waal: ‘Civil Leadership as the Future of Leadership. Harnessing the disruptive power of citizens’, Amazon.com end of November 2018.
Our societies, institutions and social fabric are currently in the early stages of the third revolution of humanity, the Digital Civil Revolution. Disruption is not restricted to markets. The same technologies that cause and fuel it are giving citizens more knowledge and information, more public and political influence, and tools to organize themselves and so to disrupt politics, democracy and public services. This totally transforms the media landscape, public opinion, political debate, and the roles of industry and the state toward citizens. This book explores this revolution as well as the special kind of civil leadership needed to harness this new citizen power. www.publicspace.eu

Will Artificial Intelligence ever match the masterful leadership of an outstanding CEO, deeply moving writing of a great poet, or nurturing care of a hospital nurse?
In this talk I explore the differences between thinking and data processing as well as between human learning and the learning algorithms of artificial neural networks. Based on the observed differences I take the stand on inimitability of exceptional human performance.
The question should not be how AI can outperform mediocre humans and in which areas or whether the best of us can beat AI in their respective domains. For me the real question is how to get the best of both worlds - and my answer is smart people using smart technology.

Many Thanks to Matthias Raith, E-Ship Chair and Marzena Starnawska, E-Ship Program Chair to offer an attractive programme for the conference next year in Lisbon! And We would like to thank each one of you for their contribution to the E-ship’s growth. Many of you contribute in multiple ways as author, reviewer, topic or track chair, mentor in the Doctoral Colloquium, participant or speaker in one of our development programmes or in our sessions. As an organisation of volunteers, all of our activities and their quality standard are highly dependent on your good will and professional expertise!

Finally, we want to thank Massimiliano Pellegrini, Past E-Ship Chair for all his energy and support during the past years in enhancing the SIG.




The Managing Sport SIG of the 2018 EURAM conference in Reykjavik was a great success. The number of papers submitted and accepted reached the SIG’s best results as in 2010 in Rome. The quality of presented papers was excellent and covered the topics sport governance, managing sport events and tourism, and sport innovation. A record was broken with 47 members that registered as SIG members – thanks to everyone who signed up! The awards sponsored by Emerald for the best paper and best reviewer were difficult to allocate due to the high quality of submissions and reviews. Finally, the winner of the best paper was Pim Verschuuren with the paper “A theoretical assessment of the adaptability of whistleblowing systems in international sports” and the best reviewer award went to Birnir Egilsson, the newly elected SIG Programme Chair.

Further changes were approved during the plenary sessions. Anna Gerke accepted the position as SIG Chair while Mathieu Winand stepped down to the position Past SIG Chair. Konstantinos Koronios accepted the position of Communications Officer. A big thanks to Birnir Egilsson who acted as Local Organizing Officer and who organised a perfect social events programme including a pre-conference Kick-Off meeting with sport management scholars and practitioners of the University of Reykjavik.
