The Nonprofit Worlds in Asia: Diverse Perspectives from a Fragmented Field of Study

June 6-7, 2017  |  Renmin University of China  |  Beijing, China



The Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA), partnering with the China Institute for Philanthropy and Social Innovation at Renmin University of China’s School of Public Administration and Policy, will jointly host the first-ever ARNOVA-Asia Conference. 

Proposals for research presentations are open for manuscripts that focus within the broad range of nonprofit organization and voluntary action in all parts or sides of Asia. Research on philanthropy, nonprofit organizations/NGOs/social economy organizations, and voluntary action in Asia is an emerging and yet fast-growing field of study. For the most part, however, it remains a highly fragmented field of study. This meeting is an effort to encourage dialogue across scholars working in some dimension of nonprofit and voluntary action studies. These dimensions include but are not limited to the following:

- Operations and mechanics of nonprofit organizations and social enterprises;
- Management, leadership, and governance of nonprofit organizations;
- Collaboration of nonprofit organizations within and across sectors;
- The influence of political and cultural contexts on voluntary organizations;
- Funding or giving to, and volunteering or participating with, nonprofit organizations;
- The role of nonprofits in cultivating grassroots action, driving social innovation, and shaping public policy

The program committee welcomes proposals for conceptual, empirical, or literature review papers that focus on new areas of research or evaluations of existing streams of research. 
- Conceptual paper proposals should develop a theoretical framework, identify key concepts, develop a model of causation, and specify propositions or testable hypotheses. 
- Empirical paper proposals will be evaluated based on the relevance and quality of the research question, research design, data, findings, and implications for theory and practice. 
- Literature review proposals will be evaluated based on their potential to add substantially to our understanding of nonprofit and voluntary action studies.

All paper proposals should be no more than 400 words (in English language), not including identifying and contact information. A person may submit no more than two proposals (including both single-authored and co-authored papers). Individuals will be limited to two acceptances (at least one of which must be multi-authored) and only one opportunity to present research at the conference.

Post-Conference Publication Opportunities

Papers accepted by the ARNOVA-Asia Conference will be considered for possible publication in a series of thematic symposiums (or mini-symposiums) with our partner journals: Administration & Society, Nonprofit & Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Nonprofit Management & Leadership, Public Performance & Management Review, and Voluntaristics Review. All the submissions would go through the regular blind review process and be subject to the same quality standards set by the journal. 

The deadline for proposal submission is February 28, 2017. Please submit your research proposal to ARNOVA-Asia@upenn.edu. The program committee will notify the decision by April 10. A full paper (about 15-20 pages, double space, excluding reference and tables) is due on May 20. The Conference will cover food for all attendees from mainland China, and will cover local transportation, food, and lodging for other attendees. If you have logistics questions related to the conference, please contact Ms. He Wang at cipsi@ruc.edu.cn. If you have any questions about proposal submissions, please contact Mr. Seongho An at anseong@upenn.edu.
