Abstract

In this special issue, we have gathered a collection of a rather diverse, some may also
argue, “unconventional”, set of articles utilising both knowledge from disciplines as well
as utilising very different methodological approaches. The idea of this special issue was
initially discussed with Dr Victor Zheng from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and
Dr Caleb Kwong from the University of Essex, back in 2013. Two more colleagues,
Professor Wong Siu-lun from the University of Hong Kong and Cherry Cheung from the
London South Bank University, soon came on board. We took the idea to Dr Jun Li, then
the General Editor of the Journal of Chinese Entrepreneurship, and were encouraged to
submit a draft proposal. The guest co-editors of this issue drafted several versions of the
call-for-papers in consultation with the editors and other entrepreneurship researchers.
We decided to focus on the following themes: “stay within the family”, “Chinese aboard”,
“entrepreneurship under special conditions”, “law and order”, “culture and Chinese
entrepreneurialism” and “studying Chinese entrepreneurship in history”. As the
proposal for the special issue developed, we submitted it to the renamed Journal of
Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies. We announced the call-for-papers in
Summer 2014 and attracted a good number of interests. All the articles in this issue have
gone through rounds of revision and resubmission. Our reviewers have also played a
major part in shaping the contribution and direction of the articles. All the reviews are
blinded, and we would like to thank the reviewers for their constructive feedback. For
quality control, the allocations of reviewers for each of the research papers were
conducted by an editor, including the General Editor, who was not involved in the paper.
We would also like to thank Dr Jun Li, the General Editor, for the opportunity and his
guidance. Finally, we thank our authors for their stimulating and engaging
manuscripts.
