Special issue on International communication strategies of technology or knowledge companies

Article Type: Call for papers From: Corporate Communications: An International Journal, Volume 13, Issue 2.

This special issue welcomes papers with profound analysis of innovative theory, empirical research, case studies, or practice arising from international communication strategies in the technology and knowledge environments. The communication function in the technology and knowledge environment is more than the classical approaches to marketing, advertising and public relations. Companies are employing innovative communication strategies, hopefully to generate more venture capitalists' interests from overseas to supplement the local business or investment. The developments of overseas alliances and partnerships depend as well on a company's success in its international communication strategies. Research studies on a wide variety of topics in relation to the international communication strategies of technology or knowledge companies, industries and economies will be suitable for this special issue and might include (but is not limited to) the following:

  • The role of international communication strategies in policy planning and marketing of technology companies.

  • How a company's international communications influence business performance, technology marketing development and knowledge marketing.

  • The role of international communication strategies in service delivery of knowledge companies.

  • Do international communication strategies play a significant role in the venture capitalists' interests?

  • The creation of effective international communication strategies for stakeholders' management in a technology-based and knowledge-based economy.

  • Does a company's corporate social responsibility play a role in the international communication strategies of technology or knowledge companies?

  • The risk and crisis involved in international communication.

  • How international communication strategies help a knowledge-based company to develop a better recognition.

  • Human roles or software roles in international communication strategies.
