Special Issue on Qualitative Comparative Analysis

20 Sep 2021

Guest Editor: Dr Branka Krivokapic-Skoko

This Special Issue of EJBRM invites submissions that address concerns related to any aspect of the application of Qualitative Comparative Analysis in the disciplines of management and business.

Next year marks 35 years since publishing of The Comparative Method by Charles Ragin which introduced Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA), a comparative case-oriented research approach, based on Boolean algebra, and aimed at providing a causal analysis. The method, while popular among social science researchers (Berger, 2016), is only recently becoming more accepted in management and organisational studies. As many of the research problems and questions identified within the business and management literature are complex and suggest multiple causal configurations, the QCA appears particularly well suited to those studies.
