    Description: [...]the discussion regarding 'relevance and implications of research findings for IB business practice and policy' is often merely an afterthought during the publication process at traditional academic journals, and authors reluctantly acquiesce to add such a discussion only because they are required to do so in order to clear a "conditional acceptance" decision after a lengthy revision and resubmission process. [...]of this initiative, our dissertation award series, which we have published annually over the past six years (see the third issue of each annual volume) has become an invaluable conduit for the timely dissemination of the latest, state-of-the-art dissertation research in international business. [...]the current system has (somehow) convinced academic scholars to sign over the copyrights to their intellectual property, and so provide the results of their research "free of charge," to for-profit publishing companies which, in turn, charge the very universities and research institutions that pay these scholars to do research in the first place for access to their journals that publish this research. [...]I would like to thank all of our dedicated authors, guest editors, and interested readers as well as the Academy of International Business, its secretariat and executive board for the confidence and trust they have bestowed in me, and for their support of our editorial initiatives.

    Description: The purpose of this article is to gain a better understanding about the sociocultural integration process in international mergers and acquisitions (M&As) by developing a marriage metaphor model for these transactions. Building on the metaphor of M&As as “marriages” between organizations, the presented model suggests that the sociocultural integration process consists of three interrelated phases: the dating, mating, and creating periods. Extant research, however, focuses primarily on the pre‐M&A contingency and post‐M&A process periods, which correspond to the dating and creating phases, respectively, and treats these research streams in relative isolation. This paper attempts to integrate these streams of research in the contexts of M&As across cultures, and further sets out to shed light onto the third, underresearched closing period, which corresponds to the mating phase in the forwarded model. In so doing, this paper endeavors to propose a dynamic perspective of the sociocultural integration in international M&As to emphasize the interrelatedness and on‐going character of this three‐stage process. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Description: This article critically reviews and synthesizes the current state of the literature on culture and international acquisition performance, and sketches out new directions for research that are promising to advance knowledge in the field. The literature on acquisition performance is categorized and discussed along three streams of research: the contingency literature, process-oriented research, and the cultural stream. Particular emphasis is placed in the latter stream to take account of the vast amount of work on this topic. In so doing, this article relates the cultural stream to both the contingency literature and process-related research to gain a more inclusive understanding of culture's consequences for international acquisition performance. The article concludes by offering a research agenda to stimulate new insights and novel work on the variables that determine the success of international acquisitions.

    Description: ABSTRACT Building on Rest's (1986) conceptual model of ethical decision making, we derive and empirically test a model that links an organization's formal ethical infrastructure to individuals’ moral awareness of ethical situations, moral judgment, and moral intention. We contribute to the literature by shedding light on the importance of a multifaceted formal ethical infrastructure—consisting of formal communication, recurrent communication, formal surveillance, and formal sanctions—as a crucial antecedent of moral awareness. In so doing, we discern how these four elements of a formal ethical infrastructure combine to collectively influence moral awareness based on a second‐order factor structure using structural equation modeling. We test our model based on survey data from 805 respondents with significant work experience across three separate ethical scenarios. Our results across the three scenarios provide overall support for our model. We found that a second‐order factor structure for the formal ethical infrastructure explains the variance among the four infrastructure elements and that a multifaceted formal ethical infrastructure significantly increases moral awareness. Our results further suggest a strong positive effect of moral awareness on moral judgment, which in turn was found to have a positive impact on moral intention. These results were substantiated when taking several individual and contextual control variables into account, such as gender, age, religiosity, work satisfaction, and a de facto ethical climate. Implications for theory, practice, and supply management are discussed.

    Description: Based on a qualitative research approach that comprises in‐depth, semistructured executive interviews, employee observations, company data and external media accounts, this study analyzes the large‐scale acquisition of the Dutch Océ N.V. by the Japanese Canon Inc. Despite their significantly different national cultural heritages and considerably contrasting organizational cultural practices, both companies were able to efficaciously manage the sociocultural integration process and so successfully completed the acquisition. Building on a marriage metaphor model for sociocultural integration in international mergers and acquisitions, this study sketches out explicit links between national cultural value orientations and the respective organizational cultural practices, and discusses key success factors for each of the three stages of the acquisition process (i.e., preacquisition, closing, and postacquisition stages). This article further examines the interconnectedness of these key success factors across these three stages of the acquisition process by discussing interlocking best practices. In so doing, this study provides a more dynamic and encompassing account of the key factors that determine the success of the sociocultural integration process in international acquisitions. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Description: We evaluate the effectiveness of global virtual student collaboration projects in international management education. Over 6,000 students from nearly 80 universities in 43 countries worked in global virtual teams for 2 months as part of their international management courses. Multisource longitudinal data were collected, including student and instructor feedback, course evaluations, assessment of changes in knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors following the experiential project, and various indicators of individual and team performance. Drawing on experiential learning, social learning, and intergroup contact theories, the effectiveness of the experiential global virtual teambased approach in international management education was evaluated at the levels of reactions, learning, attitudes, behaviors, and performance. The findings show positive outcomes at each level, but also reveal challenges and limitations of using global virtual team projects for learning and education. Implications for international management education and suggestions for future research are discussed.

    Description: While research on international joint ventures (IJVs) has intensified over the last few decades, numerous reviewers have criticized the field for lack of accumulation. We use meta-analytic techniques to quantitatively synthesize and evaluate agency theory and the behavioral perspective in their ability to explain IJV performance variance. Overall, we find support for these theories but moderator analyses unveil important effects of artifactual variables, and point to a unique character of IJVs in China. Based on meta-analyses of 165 effect sizes from 61 independent samples and a total of 26,927 IJVs, the results offer overall support for a hypothesized path model grounded in agency theory and the behavioral perspective. However, only 19 percent of the variance in IJV performance is accounted for, indicating a need to explore other underexplored variables.We do not find evidence that hierarchical control is associated with partner conflict. Closer examination shows that for IJVs in China such control lowers partner conflict, while for IJVs in other countries it amplifies partner conflict. The effects of partner conflict on IJV performance are less harmful for Chinese joint ventures than for joint ventures in other countries.Furthermore, while objective measures of cultural distance show a weak positive effect on IJV performance, subjective measures show a negative effect.

    Description: [...]treaties that have recently been completed, such as the Pacific Rim's Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and that are currently being negotiated, such as the US-EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TIPP), go much further than commitments to abolish tariffs and harmonize industry regulations that have triggered new controversies.\n Further Resources for Educators Multilateral institutions are commonly introduced in the classroom by focusing on international trade and thus the WTO. [...]new regulations created through international treaties and multilateral organizations have potentially profound implications for international direct investments, and hence the operations of multinational enterprises.

    Description: The issue was co-guest edited by Ifedapo (Dapo) Adeleye, who is an Associate Professor of Practice at Georgetown University in the United States, and Nathaniel Boso, who is a Professor in International Marketing and Entrepreneurship and Dean of the School of Business at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana. The fourth article, authored by Gcriola Olusina Daniel, Theresa Onaji-Benson, and Charles Mbalyohere, is titled "Navigating Institutional Differences in Africa: Moving Beyond the Institutional Voids Perspectiv о" Based on _ multi-case study or six MNCs that entered Uganda's electricity generation industry (three emerging economy MNCs and three advanced economy MNCs) and quantitative evidence from fifteen South African MNEs operating across Africa, the authors conclude that institutional voids, as conceptualized in Western-based research, are not necessarily a detriment to the success and competitiveness of MNCs that expand to or operate in markets characterized by such voids. [...]the fifth article, authored by Abdoulkadre Ado and Ellis L.C. Osabutey, focuses on the Africa-China cooperation.
