In 2017, the Community for Responsible Research in Business and Management, supported by EFMD, AACSB and PRME, produced a position paper entitled: “A Vision of Responsible Research in Business and Management: Striving for Credible and Useful Knowledge”. The paper has stimulated enthusiastic debate at many international academy conferences e.g., EURAM, CEEMAN, AIB, AoM. This special issue supports the activation process for building responsible research in business and management.

The Call

We are calling for management research papers that a) encourages good science and b) reduces the gap that has emerged between research and practice, with the highest regard for quality, as assessed in terms of reliability and relevance.

2. Involves key stakeholders

3. Assesses social impact

4. Values both basic and applied research contributions

5. Embraces pluralism and multi-disciplinarity

6. Uses sound methodology
