Abstract: The explanations provided in this paper constitute the aim of International Journal of Multinational Corporation Strategy (IJMCS), the journal's field of specialisation and potential themes/topics falling under the purview of IJMCS. First of all, the journals that IJMCS will compete with are Global Strategy Journal and Long Range Planning, and that is the primary aim of the journal. The reason for setting forth this goal is because the battlefield of all those journals, including IJMCS, is the global strategy domain, but IJMCS is somewhat different in that it tries to establish itself in niche territory by purely focusing on multinational corporation (MNC) strategy and strategy through foreign direct investment. Thus, as can be seen in the journal title, any themes/topics, which are associated with MNC strategy, will be issues that the journal wants to cover.
Keywords: international business; multinational corporations; MNCs; global strategy; foreign direct investment; FDI; MNC strategy; multinational enterprises; MNEs; MNE strategy.
