In Search of Research Excellence

Exemplars in Entrepreneurship

Ronald K. Mitchell, Professor, Rawls College of Business, Texas Tech University, US and Richard N. Dino, University of Connecticut, US

This path-breaking book gathers ‘best practices’ advice from the masters about how to achieve excellence in entrepreneurship research, how to create an outstanding research career and how to avoid the pitfalls that can sidetrack emerging scholars. Combining narratives from the 2009 and 2010 Entrepreneurship Exemplars Conferences, the authors frame the dialogue using person–environment fit theory and present keynote addresses and dialogue sessions that bring together editors and authors to reach into the unexplored corners of the top-tier research craft.

‘A fascinating attempt to make more explicit the tacit knowledge of leading researchers, journal editors and others. . . Useful index, and relevant for a wide range of management related researchers.’
