More on this journal...

The objective of IJCoM is to become a leading international forum for comparative research ideas in the changing dynamics of globalised production and value-chain systems driven by economic transitions, cultural adaptation and technology transfer. The journal aims to be a bridge for the knowledge gap between the academia and business practice.


IJCoM is an international academic platform to communicate and discuss comparative research findings among academic scholars, policy makers, independent researchers and corporate managers.


IJCoM publishes conceptual and empirical papers, survey research, literature review papers, case study research and methodology ideas. Special Issues devoted to important topics within comparative management perspectives will occasionally be published.
