More on this journal...

The main objective of IJBBM is to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the evolution of business and management disciplines in society. The international dimension is emphasised in order to reflect all countries when demonstrating the evolution of the business and management realms and providing new directions for researchers so that they can improve their agendas and communication possibilities and expand their networks.


IJBBM provides a vehicle to help researchers, academics, policy makers, editors, research institutions and students to disseminate information and to learn from each otherís work.


IJBBM publishes theoretical and empircal articles. While a theoretical article could assess conceptual maturity of issues based on discipline, industry and country, empirical papers provide information based on statistical principles. They must be more than simple literature reviews and must not be merely descriptive.
