Each chapter could be either a short case or a long case. A short case could be within 3,000-5,000 words. A long case could be within 9,000 – 12,000 words. The key dates are as follows:

 

Proposal submission deadline: September 15, 2011

Full chapter submission: January 15, 2012

Revised chapter submission: April 30, 2012

 

Should you accept this invitation, I would kindly like to ask that on or before September 15, 2011, you submit via e-mail a 1-3 page case proposal for review that clearly explains the mission and concern of your proposed case, and a brief outline of the chapter using the headings suggested above. Queries and expressions of interest can be directed to the editors, Nicola Whitton (n.whitton@mmu.ac.uk) and Young Baek (youngkyunbaek@boisestate.edu). Please also feel free to share this information with others who you think might be interested.
