Special Issue on "Circular Business Models" in Business Strategy and the Environment (Deadline: 30 August 2019)


Dear colleagues,

We are seeking full paper submissions to our special issue in Business Strategy and the Environment on “Business models for the circular economy” (deadline 30 August 2019) .

The outlet is one of the leading journals in the field of sustainability/environmental management (Impact factor:6.381).

This special issue aims at collecting original and high‐quality studies on how business models inform the perspective of the circular economy. We seek works that analyze Business Models for Circularity (BMCs) at the level of individual managers (and their decisions), single companies, value networks, and industrial ecosystems. Particularly welcome are economic, management, and sustainability theories and applications that specifically address the current challenges of designing, implementing, and diffusing BMCs. We are also interested in bridging the gap between and integrating other relevant fields (e.g., supply chain management, digitalization, innovation, marketing/commercialization). We are open to all methods including qualitative, quantitative, and mixed‐methods and also seek conceptual, theoretical, and literature review papers if they advance the field in significant ways.

You can find the details …
