EJIM is the first international journal devoted entirely to fostering an understanding of issues in international management theory and practice in the newly expanded European arena, including the underrepresented regions of Northern, Central and Eastern Europe, and to providing both conceptual and functional implications for further development of research, teaching practices, and managerial techniques. EJIM also solicits literature that allows for a broader interpretation of research: it welcomes papers that introduce a more European perspective through qualitative and interdisciplinary contributions.


 Topics covered include

  • Environment of international management in Europe; international strategy
  • International HRM; HRM in the host-country environment
  • Cross-cultural management
  • Leadership styles/development/implications across cultures; global vs. local leadership
  • Globalisation and European developments
  • Political and legal environments in Europe
  • Social responsibility and European organisations
  • European approach to ethical issues in management
  • Foreign market selection and market entry modes
  • Internationalisation of European SMEs
  • Strategic alliances and FDI in Europe or by European companies
  • Recruiting/selecting staff for international assignments
  • Training and development, re-entry and career issues
  • Management in the unified Europe; cultural diversity in Europe
  • Cross-cultural negotiation styles and communication within/with Europe

More on this journal...

The main objective of EJIM is to establish an outlet for scholars interested in a variety of topics in international management in Europe. EJIM’s publications are aimed not only at the academic community preoccupied with purely conceptual research, but also at other academics actively involved in transferring theoretical wisdom into actionable knowledge.

In general, EJIM is designed to serve a slightly wider segment of the academic audience by containing strong implications for both teaching and practising communities, while still maintaining both academic quality and rigour.


EJIM articles discuss new concepts, techniques, strategies, models, and trends that could be of particular significance to academics actively involved in teaching, consulting and executive training, as well as to practicing managers.


EJIM publishes original papers, case studies, book reviews (see Specific Notes for Authors, below), commentaries, and conference notes. Special issues dedicated to important topics in European international management will also be published on the occasional basis. Despite its European orientation, EJIM welcomes authors from all over the world, including North America, Asia, and South-Pacific.

Special Feature
EJIM publishes a regular section that includes a synopsis of important findings from articles appearing in any relevant non-English journals in Europe, Asia, South America, etc. The benefits of this feature are threefold:

  • it is a great opportunity for English-language authors to get familiarised with leading research topics worldwide
  • it is a good opportunity for both PhD students and academics to form a bridge between their native-language research community and the English-speaking research community
  • it is a good chance for the young and/or unknown scholars from many non-English speaking countries to have a media outlet where they can showcase their latest findings in a relevant area of knowledge
