Management Dynamics in the Knowledge Economy is particularly dedicated to publishing research that surpasses the boundaries of single academic subjects and of the paradigms and assumptions of individual disciplines or functions, so as to bridge the gap among different areas of Knowledge Management, Strategic Management and Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Leadership Development, Organizational Behavior, Human Resource Management, Financial Management, Emerging Markets, Managerial Economics, Market Economy,- Business Process Optimization, Business Intelligence Systems, Corporate Social Responsibility, Green Business, Digital transformation of business, E-commerce, Business Communication, Project Management, and many others.

By calling for and supporting an interdisciplinary and leading-edge approach on multilevel dynamics, the journal sets itself up as a comprehensive outlet for a wide range of contributions addressing the imperatives and the contingencies of the new societal and economic environments at a local, regional national, international or global scale. It is in this particular point that the journal differentiates itself from other similar publications, that is the integrative scope and multifold focus on ever-changing facts and figures.
