The characteristics of both cultures build a base for further research in this line for international business and cross cultural management. Another recently included article describes diverse social connections in an IS project team. The authors' findings suggest that team members with high bonding social capital are more likely to share their knowledge with their team. Bonding and intention to share knowledge also positively affect project performance.

One recently included article in this section helps understanding of the role of trade fairs as facilitators of consumer creativity. The authors' results imply that trade fairs play an important role in setting the stage for consumer creativity and demonstrate how consumers communicate their visit to a trade fair. The findings indicate that trade fairs have an influence on consumer creativity in the different phases of the process. Another article investigates wine tourists’ destination region brand image perception and antecedents. It identifies the winescape construct in a framework of eight dimensions within the wine tourism environment in a study with 996 respondents in a well-known Canadian wine region. The most important dimension of the winescape is the region's natural beauty/setting (landscape). Other high impact characteristics are the service staff and friendly local people, overall ambiance and the diversity of wine estates. The decision to engage in wine tourism is generally impulsive, even spurious, and the motivations guiding the visitors’ behavior predominantly hedonic in nature.
