Our colleague assoc. prof. Kathrin Kirchner is editing the special issue on "Digitalization of Knowledge Work and Its Influence on Occupational Health" together with assoc. prof. Christine Ipsen from Technical University of Denmark.
Digitalization of knowledge work opens the door to an increase in occupational health challenges —in particular of a psychosocial and organizational nature —that need to be better understood and managed. The special issue will therefore focus on answering questions like: What is the positive and negative influence of a digitalized knowledge work environment on the occupational health? Or: How is the influence of such a working environment perceived by different groups of employees? And what are the managerial actions and interventions that workplaces can take to improve or secure employees’ wellbeing?
The deadline is 31st of July 2020.

Our colleague, prof. Malgorzata Zieba is happy to announce the CfP for the special issue on ‘Innovations in Small Businesses and Sustainability’ in the Sustainability journal (IF = 2.592). The issue is co-edited together with prof. Susanne Durst from University of Skövde and University West, Skövde, Sweden and prof. Serdal Temel from Ege University, Faculty of Engineering, Turkey.
In this Special Issue, the Editors encourage scholars and practitioners to share their findings and insights on how innovation contributes (or can contribute) to the opportunities and challenges provided by sustainability. Considerable attention has already been devoted to sustainability in large companies, however this is not the case with smaller firms. This Special Issue will make a contribution to changing that. Papers adopting different theoretical lenses and worldviews, using different research methods, analysing different types of smaller firms and exploring the topic in different countries are strongly encouraged.
