Our editors and employees work hard to ensure the content we publish is ethically sound. To help us achieve that goal, we closely follow the advice laid out in the guidelines and flowcharts on the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) website. For queries relating to the status of your paper pre decision, please contact the Editor or Journal Editorial Office.

Where they are included, a brief professional biography of not more than 100 words should be supplied for each named author. We are a member of the International Association of Scientific, Technical, and Medical Publishers (STM) and participate in the STM permissions guidelines, a reciprocal free exchange of material with other STM publishers. In some cases, this may mean that you don’t need permission to re-use content. Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal’s published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Past research has discussed many benefits that AI and algorithms bring to HRM, such as optimized decision-making (Kinowska & Sienkiewicz, 2022), building talent pools (Cheng & Hackett, 2021; Maor et al., 2021) and managing work allocation (Baiocco et al., 2022). Yet, concurrently, recent studies have pointed out that AI and algorithms’ use in HRM also has a distinctive dark side (Giermindl et al., 2022). Furthermore, emergent findings indicate that AI and algorithmic HRM can have a detrimental effect on employee well-being (Meijerink et al., 2021), integrity (Leicht-Deobald et al., 2019) and organizational commitment (Tomprou & Lee, 2022). These discourses hint at the duality of AI and algorithmic HRM’s impact on organizations and employees (Bustamante & Gandhi, 2018; Meijerink & Bondarouk, 2023). However, the literature on AI and algorithmic HRM is still evolving and fragmented, with scholars discoursing specific issues in the field – without considering the overarching, i.e., positive and negative, consequences of deploying these technologies.

  • Papers are likely to be more descriptive or instructional (‘how to’ papers) than discursive.
  • The goal of this special issue (SI) is to advance our understanding of what service research can contribute with to better theorize about and understand Business-to-Business (B2B) Markets.
  • This process often aims to gain and retain customers, exploiting new digital technologies (Saura et al., 2021).
  • But, what does sustainability mean for B2B firms and how can challenging goals and promises be translated into strategies for achieving the UNs sustainable development goals.
  • But, there is a pressing need to increase the pace on sustainable development of all B2B organizations.

‘Top down’ studies to date tend to draw upon Upper Echelons theory and have focused on the impact of C-level executives and top management team (TMT) characteristics on an organization’s CSA adoption (e.g., Eilert & Cherup, 2020; Hambrick & Wowak, 2021 Nalick et al., 2016). On the other hand ‘bottom-up’ studies have typically employed stakeholder theory to explore how CSA is driven by the adoption or co-creation of the values of social movements, often together with an organization’s employees, customers, and supply chain partners (Eilert & Cherup, 2020; Georgallis, 2017; Kapitan et al., 2022). While limited empirical evidence exists in this sphere to date, the key takeaway is that CSA adoption seems to be driven by both forces (e.g., Hambrick & Wowak, 2021), and further exploration is required, drawing on additional theoretical bases, to understand the factors driving organizational CSA adoption more fully.

If you choose to host your supplementary files on Insight, you must submit these as separate files alongside your article.

The impact of customs and trade regulations on the operations of African firms

Problematic online consumer collectives are not a new phenomenon, however the role of influencers in creating and cultivating these collectives warrants further investigation. The emergence of influencers – personal brands that build an audience over social media with a consistent flow of distinctive content (Kozinets et al. 2023) – has had important implications for marketing and consumer culture. Whilst some influencers are niche, unknown outside of a small circle of devoted and highly engaged followers, others have followings that rival those of mainstream celebrities (Campbell and Farrell 2020).
