3rd Global Innovation and Knowledge Academy (GIKA) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The GIKA Annual Con­fer­ence pro­vides a plat­form for dis­cussing chal­lenges per­tain­ing to con­tem­po­rary issues in Inno­va­tion and Knowl­edge. The 3rd GIKA Annual Con­fer­ence will be orga­nized by the Uni­ver­si­tat de Valèn­cia (UV) and the Catholic Uni­ver­sity of Valen­cia, and will be held July 7 – 10, 2014. The con­fer­ence will take place in the Fac­ulty of Eco­nom­ics, Uni­ver­sity of Valen­cia, Valen­cia, Spain.

    The first edi­tion of GIKA received 75 papers by schol­ars from 15 coun­tries. The sec­ond GIKA Con­fer­ence, in July 2013, boasted more than 210 papers by researchers from more than 40 coun­tries. Feed­back and Q&A ses­sions, includ­ing sug­ges­tions from edi­tors of inter­na­tional jour­nals attend­ing the con­fer­ence, helped the authors pub­lish their papers. Each edi­tion of the GIKA Con­fer­ence offers the chance to pub­lish in the JBR with a spe­cial issue edi­tion con­tain­ing the best papers from the con­fer­ence. In the next edi­tion of GIKA we will be fol­low­ing a sim­i­lar process, with papers being pub­lished in 2015. The con­fer­ence will be orga­nized in par­al­lel ses­sions (for non-​native Eng­lish speak­ers, papers in one of these ses­sions may be pre­sented in Span­ish, with slides in Eng­lish). Admis­sion to the con­fer­ence is based on full sub­mit­ted papers.

    Jour­nal of Busi­ness Research

    The Jour­nal of Busi­ness Research (Else­vier) is the spon­sor jour­nal for the Acad­emy. One of the aims of the con­fer­ence is to select high-​quality papers to pub­lish in a spe­cial issue of the JBR. In addi­tion to paper pre­sen­ta­tion ses­sions, paper sym­po­siums, and ple­nary speech ses­sions by top inter­na­tional schol­ars, the con­fer­ence pro­vides new pro­grams such as a pre-​conference research method­ol­ogy work­shop (by Pro­fes­sor Arch Wood­side), a keynote speech, and a meet-​the-​editor ses­sion on how to pub­lish in the Jour­nal of Busi­ness Research (JBR) by the journal’s edi­tor, Pro­fes­sor Arch Wood­side . Mean­while, the con­fer­ence also wel­come teach­ing case stud­ies and research case stud­ies.

    Spe­cial issue

    ‘Spirit of Strat­egy (SOS): the New SOS for Com­pet­i­tive Busi­ness. Blend­ing con­tex­tual infor­ma­tion and cog­ni­tive knowl­edge for mak­ing GIKA-​level con­tri­bu­tions in improv­ing deci­sions, tasks, per­for­mances and out­come eval­u­a­tions’.

    Guest Editors:

    • Domingo Ribeiro Sori­ano, Uni­ver­sity of Valen­cia and
    • Kun-​Huang Huarng, Feng Chia Uni­ver­sity, Taiwan.

    The spe­cial issue edi­tors are open to imag­i­na­tive and inter­est­ing ideas that fit within the topic of the Con­fer­ence and the top­ics cov­ered by the Jour­nal of Busi­ness Research. We are also invit­ing for teach­ing case stud­ies and research case stud­ies on infor­ma­tion acqui­si­tion and trans­for­ma­tion into knowl­edge for man­age­ment decision-​making.

    Pre-​Conference Research Method­ol­ogy Workshop

    The one-​day work­shop cov­ers nuances on how-​to-​solve the para­dox of doing case study research that achieves both accu­racy and gen­er­al­iza­tions beyond the sam­ple of cases in a study; the work­shop also cov­ers the nuances in sub­mis­sion, revis­ing, and pub­lish­ing processes for gain­ing accep­tances in SSCI jour­nals. A big day of learn­ing what to do and how to do research-​and how to get your arti­cle accepted in SSCI journals!

    Spe­cial ses­sion ‘Meet the editor’

    In addi­tion to the paper pre­sen­ta­tion tracks, GIKA is proud to announce a ‘meet the edi­tor’ ses­sion. The editor-​in-​chief of the JBR, Pro­fes­sor Arch G. Wood­side will host a face-​to-​face ses­sion with the par­tic­i­pants of the con­fer­ence. In this ses­sion, Arch will explain JBR’s mis­sion, edi­to­r­ial process, recent sub­mis­sion trends, and other top­ics of inter­est for schol­ars look­ing to pub­lish their work in the jour­nal. The aim of the ses­sion is to help prospec­tive authors under­stand what it takes to be pub­lished in JBR, and why papers get rejected. Par­tic­i­pants will have an oppor­tu­nity to speak and pose ques­tions to Arch.

    The con­fer­ence wel­comes researchers from all over the world. To pro­vide an idea of some of the schol­ars who have par­tic­i­pated in the GIKA Con­fer­ences, the fol­low­ing list con­tains some exam­ples of emi­nent GIKA attendees:
