Call for Contributions: A Guide to Top 100 Companies in China

With more than 1.3 billion people, China has the largest population and one of the fastest growing economies in the world. While much has been written about the country’s overall economic growth, much less is known about the companies helping to generate it. Scheduled to be published by World Scientific in 2010, A Guide to Top 100 Companies in China will provide up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of key corporations as ranked by revenue size. Edited by Professors Wenxian Zhang and Ilan Alon of Rollins College, this reference guide will highlight the major enterprises in China, which as a gauge of the country’s overall economy have made significant contributions to the economic growth of recent years.

Potential contributors may view the list of available entries ( here. Each contributor is expected to write three entries and 3,500 words or more, and in return, will receive contributor acknowledgment in each entry and a copy of the book when it is published. Each entry will be roughly 1,000-1,500 words in length, briefly summarizing a company’s historical development, main products and services, corporate structure and leadership, business strategies, future development plans, as well as the key roles played in the Chinese and global economies. Entries should also address key business operations and drivers, competitive advantages and challenges, major shareholders and the most recent financial snapshot of the company in question. References will be provided at the end of each entry. Interested individuals should briefly summarize their subject expertise and qualifications when applying for entries, and all assignments are due May 31, 2009 in Microsoft Word format.
