Working together from offices in Boston, Melbourne, Oxford, and Singapore, Wiley editorial and marketing colleagues in the social sciences are collaborating on a series of online-only virtual issues created specifically for the Chinese market.
articles are accompanied by an introduction to set the stage and to place the articles in context.
Some of the articles focus on research about China itself, while others present research relevant to China and Chinese academics. For example, within the environmental policy virtual issue you will find articles on the environment in China, as well as developments from around the globe that can be applied to China.
To enhance discoverability, the virtual issues are promoted in China through e-mail campaigns in Mandarin; ad words on the Chinese search engine, Baidu; posts on Chinas version of Twitter, Sina Weibo; and on the Wiley Asia blog. They are also prominently featured on www.wileychina.com, and highlighted at relevant conferences throughout Asia.
To get the maximum benefit from the virtual issues, they are also promoted via similar English-language campaigns.
A series of 11 virtual issues is planned, with six published so far, including:
- Research in Emerging Economy Contexts (Management)

Anne S. Tsui, Editor-in-Chief of Management and Organization Review
