In this chapter, we review small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) internationalization in Scotland from both academic and policy-making stances. After providing some background information on Scottish SME internationalization, it is proposed that SMEs in Scotland follow the ‘ACE’ model as far as policy-makers are concerned. Although statistics shows that Scotland has sustained itself to be an open and innovation-driven economy, the academic attention appears to be limited on Scotland-context research and we call for more empirical efforts to support Scottish SME managers and policy-makers. This chapter concludes with recommendations and future prospects for Scottish SMEs.

Emerging Paradigms in International Entrepreneurship identifies key themes that collectively demonstrate the convergence of thinking at the interface between the disciplines of international business and entrepreneurship. These are: development of the field and the effects of international entrepreneurship on a new economy; conceptual and paradigmatic developments; international entrepreneurship and the internet as a developing research agenda; contacts links and networks as process driven internationalisation; cross-sectoral, cross-national and cross-cultural comparisons of entrepreneurship; and the experiential emphasis in entrepreneurial internationalisation.
