Organizations and Markets in Emerging Economies’ purpose is to contribute to the development and dissemination of multidisciplinary knowledge on organizations and markets in emerging economies, to increase dialogue among scholars focused on a specific emerging economy or region and, finally, to encourage and give an outlet to high quality scholarship, both local and international, to this subject. There are several reasons that we see a need for this journal.
 
Numerous studies emphasize uniqueness of every emerging economy in terms of how (a) organizations are created, structured, managed and encultured; (b) markets emerge and are shaped by their historical, institutional and cultural context; and (c) how local and global institutions and forces shape both organizations and markets in emerging economies and how the two interact.
 
There are many definitions for what constitutes an emerging economy. Our approach is to take a broad definition. As such, emerging economies include the transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe, Asian nations (China, India, Vietnam, and others) that are increasing their free-market systems, countries in Central and South America, and finally countries in Africa. Each of these regions faces unique challenges and we encourage research that highlights the specifics of the particular region or country and combines that insight with broader lessons for other researchers.
 
Obviously, emerging economies vary significantly by their size, industry structure, geopolitical location, and reserves of natural resources such as oil and gas. These differences have a significant impact on the distinctiveness of their organizations and markets. However, this large number and variety of emerging economies might also motivate scholarly curiosity to identify context-specific relationships as well as trends across different emerging economies.
 
Many studies focus deeply on specific aspects of organizations and study only a few factors, which characterise how markets in emerging regions develop. In one way or another, all of them touch some part of the interaction between an organization and its market. We feel that a broader understanding of organizations – their continuous interaction with their markets – can itself be a solid starting point of multidisciplinary studies and encourage novel research questions and dialogue in this area.
 
Combining the variety and similarities of emerging economies with the interaction between organizations and their markets allows us to offer an outlet for scholars that analyzes the specifics of emerging markets from numerous perspectives. Though analysis of organizations typically has significant managerial implications, the study itself can have a sociological, psychological, anthropological perspective or even come from the functional or technological aspects like process management, information systems or financial accounting. Organizations’ interaction with markets can also cover marketing and consumer behaviour analyses as well as studies in all types of communications.
 
Therefore, the journal is targeted at all scholars that are interested in studies of emerging economies, offering a chance for them to be both readers and contributors of articles. We welcome:
 
-     review articles that summarize and evaluate the stock of theoretical knowledge on a specific issue;
-     conceptual/theory building articles that develop propositions and outline further research;
-     empirical studies that analyze specific questions using qualitative or quantitative techniques.
 
In all cases we equally appreciate and encourage research by scholars from emerging economies as well as studies that are undertaken by researchers from developed countries. The journal aims to achieve synergy between both of these sources. The concept of synergy is reflected in the structure of our editorial board as well as the network of reviewers, which allows the peer review procedure to be rigorous and constructive, helping to advance research papers.
 
The Organizations and Markets in Emerging Economies is a journal of quality studies and focuses on new aspects of organizational and market studies in emerging economies.
