Call for Papers: Immigrant Effect And International Business Management

Journal of Asia Business Studies (JABS)
Special Issue: Immigrant Effect And International Business Management
Call for Papers

Guest Editors
Professor Rosalie Tung, Simon Fraser University, Canada
Dr Henry Chung, Massey University, New Zealand

The U.S. think tank, Hudson Institute, coined the term, “global workforce 2000”, to refer to the growing mobility of people worldwide. Countries that have received many immigrants from different parts of the world can benefit from the presence of these immigrant communities because of their special knowledge and connections with their country of origins (COO). The concept, “immigrant effect“, refers to the impact that an immigrant employer or employee has on the success of international business operations that pertain to the immigrant‘s COO.

To advance our understanding of the immigration effect, the Journal of Asia Business Studies (JABS), a premium peer-reviewed academic publication (, invites manuscripts that address issues related to the “immigrant effect”, international human resource management, internationalization, international trade, international marketing strategies, cross-cultural management and so on. In particular, we welcome papers that focus on the Asia-Pacific region. However, research that draws from data on other geographical areas is also welcome.

Possible topics for empirical and theoretical research papers include (but are not limited to):

• International human resource management and immigrant effect
• Internationalization and immigrant effect
• International marketing strategies and immigrant effect
• International entrepreneurship and immigrant effect
• International trade and immigrant effect
• International network and immigrant effect
• Cross-cultural management and immigrant effect
