Call for papers for Prosperitas’ Special Issue entitled “Global and Local Perspectives of Entrepreneurship Research” 

Budapest Business School University of Applied Sciences’ journal Prosperitas is inviting papers for its special issue entitled “Global and Local Perspectives of Entrepreneurship Research” to be published foreseeably in 2022.

Entrepreneurship is a fundamental factor in economic development and is instrumental in understanding the ways entrepreneurs contribute to the creation of employment and the development and implementation of innovative technologies (Ferreira et al., 2017).

The academic field of entrepreneurship is relatively young, and yet its importance has been growing at an incredible rate in recent decades. This fast-paced development resulted in a complex and heterogeneous research area with its unique approaches and methodologies, which extend even to the understanding of what exactly constitutes entrepreneurship (Short et al., 2009).

Carlsson et al. (2013:914) defines the domain of entrepreneurship research as follows: “Entrepreneurship refers primarily to an economic function that is carried out by individuals, entrepreneurs, acting independently or within organizations, to perceive and create new opportunities and to introduce their ideas into the market, under uncertainty, by making decisions about location, product design, resource use, institutions, and reward systems. The entrepreneurial activity and the entrepreneurial ventures are influenced by the socioeconomic environment and result ultimately in economic growth and human welfare. The domain of entrepreneurship research embraces numerous dimensions, and the analysis can be carried out at various levels (individual or team level, venture and firm level, and macroeconomic level). The socioeconomic environment, consisting of institutions, norms, and culture as well as availability of finance, knowledge creation in the surrounding society, economic and social policies, the presence of industry clusters, and geographic parameters, may influence entrepreneurial activities at all levels.”

Due to this comprehensive approach, entrepreneurship research covers a wide range of topics. Lu et al. (2020) reviewed entrepreneurship studies and identified the following key topics in entrepreneurship research: (1) entrepreneurial orientation, (2) entrepreneurial opportunities, (3) entrepreneurship processes, (4) characteristics and personality of entrepreneurs, (5) international entrepreneurship, (6) institutional entrepreneurship, (7) conducting entrepreneurship, (8) performance of entrepreneurship, (9) results of entrepreneurship, (10) entrepreneurial failure, (11) education and entrepreneurship, (12) geography. In their study, Lu et al. advocate more extensive cross-discipline research and comparative international research.

Prosperitas’ special issue entitled “Global and Local Perspectives of Entrepreneur Research” is keen to present young and well-established researchers’ studies about enterprises in Hungary and globally, thus enhancing publication activity connected to entrepreneurship. The special issue specifically welcomes contributions that discuss comparisons extending to several countries and address any of the following topics: 

- Entrepreneurial intention in international contexts

- Entrepreneurship demography in international contexts

- Intrapreneurship

- Sustainable entrepreneurship

- Social entrepreneurship

- Impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on entrepreneurship

- Entrepreneurship development

- Entrepreneurial ecosystems

- Family businesses

- Startup businesses

- Student entrepreneurships

- Entrepreneurship education

- Motivating young entrepreneurs

- The role of higher education institutions in the development of entrepreneurship competences

- Female entrepreneurship

In line with its title, the special issue is planned to offer an internationally contextualized overview of processes and phenomena currently impacting the operation of enterprises, thereby facilitating international academic discourse and policy decision-support.

To the special issue, research papers, conceptual papers and viewpoints are invited. Please, visit Prosperitas’ website for further information about manuscript submission:

Deadline: you are kindly requested to submit your article via e-mail to by 31st March 2022 the latest.
