    Call for Papers: “Network Perspectives on Resource Interaction”

    This Special Issue seeks to provide a forum for discussions about resource combinations and connections occurring across organizations/actors, investigated by means of various network perspectives.

    We invite both conceptual and empirical submissions which should contribute to better understanding of the development and use of resources in a network context, focusing on such areas as, but not limited to, innovation management, business strategy, logistics, accounting, supply management, B2B marketing, environmental sustainability and digitalization. To simulate fruitful discussions and cross-fertilization we encourage submissions taking a variety of theoretical perspectives on interacting resources. We also welcome submissions adopting a wide range of methods, including for instance case studies, qualitative comparative analyses of multiple cases, quantitative studies and agent-based simulations.

    Specific questions include but are not limited to:

    - Which are the core concepts necessary to understand resource interaction, both when it comes to the properties of single resources and of their interactions and combinations?

    - How might knowledge and capabilities, and other immaterial resources, such be conceptualized from an interactive network perspective?

    - How might we capture the complex and emergent nature of resources methodologically? Are there quantitative and/or mixed methods that investigate some particular features, practices or processes of how resource combining?

    - How is value conceived of and created around specific resources, and which actors are better equipped to appropriate such value and why?

    - How does a start-up or new venture actor assemble resources in creating a scalable business model?

    - What are the drivers and barriers to combining and integrating resources, and which roles do actors play in overcoming relevant challenges?

    - What managerial and policy implications derive from value-creation processes involving resources?

    Submission deadline: November 9th 2020
