Affiliated research area: Business
The aspect of culture in the human society and business has a direct relationship with each other. They both establish interesting conditions when they associate in a common platform which in my view is a good way to get used to challenging moments. In many parts of the world, people adopt different cultures based on their own understanding. There are different ways in which people in different areas respond to certain gestures and signs. Cultural activities are used in almost every aspect of human living and for this matter, in some areas they are a great influence to the businesses. The purpose of this special topic is to build on the learning from previous debates regarding different approaches to studying culture as well as bringing to the audience insights from other disciplines that take an interest in culture. We encourage researchers from economics, psychology, sociology, political science, education and other domains to publish their latest work on this topic. We welcome conceptual and empirical papers using quantitative, qualitative or mixed approaches aimed at providing comprehensive solutions to previously raised issues and that illustrate the most advanced methods for studying culture and other related constructs.
In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on “The Influence of Culture on Business” for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.
