Chapter 31: Publishing in top international business and management journals
Publishing in top international business and international management (IB/IM) journals generally follows the same paths with many of the same expectations and requirements as presented for top general management journals. There is, however, one major exception. That is the absolute need to follow the journal’s guidance in defining what makes the content of an article international in scope. We will develop a discussion and provide some examples of this in the next section of this chapter. We also believe that expectations relating to topics, relevant literature, data collection, methods, and presentation tend to be a bit different in the IB/IM literature from general management. These, though, are matters of degree or focus or preference, while the demand that a paper be “international,” whatever is meant by any particular journal in using that word, is essential. IB/IM involve the study of cross-border activities of economic agents, or the strategies and governance of firms engaged in such activity. International scope obviously is comprised of many parts as one could claim that very few economic activities do not have an international dimension. It is certainly true that more and more economic activities are becoming more international and global, so the context for studying economic activities will often be international, where the objects of study are different cross-border activities.
