EJCCM is the official scholarly publication of the International Association of Cross-Cultural Management and Competence (IACCM). It aims to widen and deepen discussion about issues regarding the influence of cultural differences and diversity on the management of organisations of all kinds. Of particular relevance is the question of how culture affects both managers and decision-makers in situations involving the cross-cultural transfer of knowledge, values and experiences. The scope of EJCCM is further widened by close cooperation with SIETAR Austria and SIETAR Europa.

  • Multinational work teams
  • Inter-/cross-cultural careers
  • Inter-/cross-cultural management

More on this journal...

EJCCM covers the broad field of cross-cultural research with special reference to management in practice. One of its main objectives is the establishment of a platform for the discussion of cultural issues in modern business across disciplines and cultures. In the spirit of its founding organisation, EJCCM encourages contributions from different fields of science dealing with the interrelations and links between culture, personality and patterns of behaviour; with the effects of culture and cultural differences on intercultural interactions and of interactions on cultural difference; with learning from successful and not so successful intercultural action; with strategies of cultural adjustment and hybridisation; and with cultural distinction and separation. The journal explicitly encourages papers about the dynamics of cross-cultural interactions during transition in East, Central and South East Europe, the former Soviet Union, and Newly Independent States.


EJCCM offers insights into the effects of culture on business in a globalised world, which are relevant for academics in business studies, social science and other fields of science dealing with culture, intercultural trainers and educators, as well as business people working internationally. While the title of the journal puts a clear emphasis on studies from a European perspective, distinct non-European perspectives are highly welcome, too.


EJCCM publishes original papers, case studies, book reviews, and management and conference reports. In its Practitioner“s Corner, applied and practical contributions are included which are of particular relevance for educators, trainers and business people working in an international and multicultural context. Special Issues devoted to new developments in the field and other important topics in cultural research are encouraged.
