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.

Every year we receive more than 500 papers. We only accept a small number of papers, after a rigorous double blind review process. All papers are available for free as we are an open access journal.
