A volume in the series: Research in Strategic Alliances. Editor(s): T. K. Das, City University of New York.

This new projected volume, Managing the Partners in Strategic Alliances [MPSA], will bring together some of the latest thinking on the key issues relating to the management of partners in strategic alliances, including developing effective interpartner relations and control of partner behavior/misbehavior/opportunism. In general, all aspects of partner management in strategic alliances are welcome as research topics, with both theoretical and empirical treatments of the topics. By selecting a number of cutting-edge research perspectives, frameworks, models, theories, and empirical findings that inform the subject, the chapters in this book will serve as a compendium of promising ideas to provide some rigorous impetus for a critical area of research in strategic alliances.

We invite you (and your associates) to contribute a chapter to this projected volume [MPSA]. If you are willing to contribute, please send us your chapter proposal by August 31, 2019 (for a chapter that should be around 25-40 pages, approx. 6000 to 10000 words, although longer manuscripts may also be acceptable). Proposals should be made on one single-spaced page, and consist of your name and affiliation, email address, a tentative title, an abstract, and the structure of the planned chapter. The proposal should cover as much essential detail of the chapter contents as you can furnish at this initial stage.
