Over the past two decades, transition and innovation in organisations as a field of research has grown significantly, and its interdisciplinary connections with management, entrepreneurship, economics, psychology and sociology have encouraged its legitimacy. Recent developments have supported the recognition that organisations show heterogeneous behaviours and performances with respect to transition and innovation issues. This heterogeneity arises from intra-organisational and extra-organisational sources. The main goal of IJTIS is to encourage studies exploring all organisations in unique transitional and innovative contexts.
Topics covered include
- Traditional strategy research topics (such as internationalisation, corporate entrepreneurship, cooperation, competitive dynamics, economic and non-economic performance, among others), but contextualised for organisations in emerging, developing and transition economies, with a specific focus on family firms
- Traditional management research topics (such as managerial succession, corporate governance, inter-generational entrepreneurship and management practices, among others), but contextualised in emerging, developing and transition economies, with a specific focus on SMEs
- Cultural aspects that frame organisations' values, norms and ethics in emerging, developing and transition economies
- Historical, sociological and anthropological perspectives to study organisations in emerging, developing and transition economies
- The role of government policies in the start-up, development or death of organisations in emerging, developing and transition economies
- Strategies adopted by organisations to counteract/compromise/comply with institutional isomorphism in emerging, developing and transition economies
- The economic and social impact of organisations in emerging, developing and transition economies
- Comparative studies considering differences and similarities between organisations in developed and developing countries, or among developing countries
IJTIS aims to contribute to management practice and research in different ways. Firstly, replication studies in new contexts enable the generalisation and potential expansion of current knowledge and findings. Secondly, by emphasising the importance of environment, studies can contextualise the relationship between organisations and environments. The overall objective is to improve our understanding of how and why some theories are more dominant than others in specific contexts.
IJTIS provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics researchers and policy makers working in the field of transitions and innovation systems to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
We invite submissions from various disciplines, such as organisational behaviour, HRM, organisation theory, management, strategy, family business, or combinations thereof. Contributions can be conceptual (including critical literature reviews or state-of-the-art articles) and/or empirical (qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods). Papers which adopt innovative approaches or challenge our understanding of how organisations cope with transition and innovation issues are welcome. Action research papers with an intervention focus are also welcome. Review papers as well as empirical and theoretical papers will be considered.

Writing in the International Journal of Transitions and Innovation Systems, a research team based in Italy and Kenya has looked at how lay people continue to be involved in knowledge generation and dissemination. They have analysed more than 80 research papers to uncover the role of citizen scientists in knowledge co-production. Rocco Palumbo of the University Rome 'Tor Vergata', Rosalba Manna of the University 'Parthenope' of Naples, Italy, and Alexander Douglas of The Management University of Africa in Nairobi, Kenya, found that the citizen scientist's role depends critically on the degree of autonomy the person has and the type of relationship they establish with the "expert" scientists [...]More details...
