CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue of the Journal of Media Business Studies
“Strategic Management in the Media (Creative) Industries”
Special Issues Editor:
Sabine Baumann – Jade University, Germany
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: April 15, 2018
The media industries (creative industries) are going through a period of accelerating change, transformation and disruption driven by rapid technology developments. Obviously, these developments have profound effects on management strategies and industry development. Articles from media management and media economics scholars have studied the phenomenon mostly from empirical angles, while general and strategic management scholars have used media abundantly as a field of investigation for theory-building, but not for advancing insights about the functioning of the industries per se. What seems to be missing is a stronger scholarly exchange in order to tap into the mutual synergies by introducing advanced theories of strategic management to studies of media sectors.
