    Aim and Scope of this Special Issue:

    In recent decades, research in business economics in Germany has increasingly become internationalized. However, unlike in natural sciences, knowledge in business economics is typically bound to a specific place and time. Against this backdrop, we call for contributions that take up a specifically German perspective in one of the following ways:

    1. The contributions may address an aspect that is characterized by a particular tradition of research in Germany. In other countries, particularly in Anglo-Saxon countries, these questions were not in the same focus or were not examined from the same perspective. Examples could be given from the fields of business valuation and production theory, but it is important to question why there are „German peculiarities“ in these areas.
    2. The contributions may come from areas where the institutional environment plays a special role, as is the case, for example, in business taxation or accounting. This naturally raises the question of a national and thus a German perspective on certain problems. Potential questions could speak to the determinants or the interpretation of the institutional framework and also address its economic consequences. Such research should still offer conclusions that are generalizable beyond the German context.
    3. In general, the question arises as to the extent to which empirical results for other countries can be transferred to Germany, since cultural peculiarities may also play a role in addition to the institutional framework. However, such research must be firmly based on a comprehensive theoretical foundation.
    4. Even in sub-areas where normative questions are paramount, especially in business ethics, the German perspective on certain issues may be special. However, if there are already differences in goal definition, there will be differences in problem solving as well.
    5. Each country has its own specific problems or overall economic/societal framework conditions that require special solutions, for example, based on the given production factor endowment (few raw materials, well-educated workforce, aging population, high immigration), which could lead to specific German questions and solutions.

    The call is open to researchers from all sub-disciplines of business economics. Theoretical and empirical papers with a clear quantitative focus are particularly welcome. Empirical papers should be based on theoretically derived hypotheses and state-of-the-art hypotheses testing. Papers must be written in English and must not contain any reference to the identity of the authors.

    Please submit an (extended) abstract of about 1,000 words to by 06/30/2023. The authors of the selected abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper by 11/30/2023. They must not have been published previously. Submitted papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed and – upon acceptance – published in a special issue of the Journal of Business Economics at the beginning of 2025.

  • Call for Papers: Replication Studies in Finance and Accounting, Journal of Business Economics (Special Issue) 13. März 2023 Geschrieben von Prof. Dr. Axel F.A. Adam-Müller


    Wolfgang Breuer, Department of Finance, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany

    Christian Hofmann, LMU Munich School of Management, Munich, Germany

    Aim of this Special Issue:

    Business economics as an applied science is strongly rooted in empirical research. Unlike in natural sciences, where laws of nature are assumed to be generally valid over time and space, this is not necessarily the case for real-life economic relationships. First, empirical economic findings in one region of the world cannot generally be assumed to hold true for institutional or cultural backgrounds in other societies. A prominent example is the difference in market reactions and outcomes between capital market-oriented Anglo-Saxon countries and bank-based financial systems like those in Germany or Japan. Second, empirical results may lose significance over time due to technological advancements or changes in human behavior (possibly even in response to these former studies!), which may render frameworks and insights obsolete that were valid in the past. For instance, behavioral anomalies that were previously exploitable may disappear once they are revealed in scientific publications. Third, from today’s perspective, it may be that previous studies exhibit fundamental and so far undetected weaknesses in methodology or data quality, which need to be disclosed. Especially the current surge in big data approaches has considerably expanded opportunities for empirical testing.
    Against this backdrop, replication studies in business economics in general, and in finance and accounting in particular, gain special relevance. Of course, it is important that these empirical works are well-grounded in theory, so that the conception of the respective replication study already shows why an empirical test of earlier works could be of interest. We call on researchers to make such contributions to the field of finance and accounting.

    Papers must be written in English and must not contain any reference to the identity of the authors.

    Please submit an (extended) abstract of about 1,000 words to by 05/31/2023. The authors of the selected abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper by 11/30/2023. They must not have been published previously. Submitted papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed and – upon acceptance – published in a special issue of the Journal of Business Economics at the beginning of 2025.

  • Call for Papers: Emerging Trends in Data Science and Business Analytics Models and Applications, Decision Analytics Journal (Special Issue) 22. Februar 2023 Geschrieben von Prof. Dr. Axel F.A. Adam-Müller

    The accelerating volume of data in organizations has made data science and business analytics one of the fastest-growing fields across every industry. Data science and business analytics apply mathematical, statistical, operational research, and information systems modeling to solve real-life problems from productivity to sustainability in business, engineering, and sciences. Specialized programming, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory, simulation, and optimization are widely used in data science and business analytics to uncover actionable insights hidden in organizational data. These insights can be used to find patterns in data, identify causes and effects, evaluate future scenarios, find optimal solutions, and make informed decisions in business and politics.

  • Call for Papers: 8th Rostock Conference on Service Research 14. Dezember 2022 Geschrieben von Prof. Dr. Axel F.A. Adam-Müller

    Call for Papers
    th Rostock Conference on Service Research
    September 7
    th and 8th, 2023

    Research in individual services and service industries is of central importance in national as well as international contexts. However, there is still a need for further research, as concepts and theories developed for the analysis of (manufacturing) industrial activities do not apply to the service sector, which is characterized by immaterial commodities.

    Therefore, the research focus of the Institute of Business Administration of the University of Rostock is dedicated to ‘Service Management and Service Markets’. To further the scientific exchange on these topics, the institute hosts a conference in Rostock, covering recent developments in service research. The conference serves business economists, economists, business psychologists, sociologists or other service-oriented researchers.

    We would like to invite all interested parties to participate in the eighth Rostock Conference on Service Research, presenting their research results. Formats will include oral (30 min. plus 15 min. for referent discussant and discussion) as well as poster presentations. Contributions from all areas of business administration and all disciplines researching in the field of services are welcome. The contributions could cover, but are not limited, to topics regarding the functional aspects of services (e.g. work system design, customer‐employee interactions, the design of innovative services, services controlling) or research taking an institutional perspective on specific services such as financial services providers, tourism enterprises, tax advisors, auditors, or logistics companies. In line with the last conferences on service research in Rostock, the research committee will award the best poster. The opening keynote speech will be given by Prof. Dr. Martin Benkenstein (Institute for Marketing and Service Research, University of Rostock).

    Within the framework of the conference, the annual meeting of the scientific commission service management within the German Academic Association for Business Research (VHB) will be held as a separate track. The conference language is German as well as English.

    Please submit your contribution as an extended abstract (1.000 words max.), either in English or German before March 31st 2023 via The extended abstract should cover the research questions, the research method as well as the essential results. You will be notified whether your submission is accepted or rejected during May 2023. Further information about the conference as well as a format template for the extended abstract is available on the internet at
