Aiming to be the de facto business and management open access journal!

Authors are invited to submit theoretical and empirical papers in all categories of business such as e-business, general management, international business, strategy, marketing, supply chain management, organization studies, entrepreneurship, enterprise, innovation and human resource management.

We welcome paper submissions on the basis that the material has not been published elsewhere. We also aim to develop a journal that will appeal to both business and management practitioners. On that basis, papers that include practical applications to any business and management field are welcomed.

We endeavour to provide rapid and informative feedback to authors. Our objective is to obtain reviews from referees within 10 weeks of the initial paper submission. For the author guidelines and for submitting an article please click here. We are looking forward to receiving quality submissions for our forthcoming volumes. In 2018 we expect to receive more than 600 papers. We typically accept around 4-5%, after a rigorous double blind review process. All papers are available for free as we are an open access journal.
