The Journal of International Business and Economy (JIBE) (ISSN: 1527-8603) seeks to publish high-quality research with questions, evidence and conclusions that are relevant to business, trade and commerce, and economics for scholars of all disciplines, particularly with a global perspective. We receive manuscripts with a diverse mix of topics, framings, and methods, and our acceptances reflect this diversity.


More specifically, JIBE seeks to publish papers that ask and help to answer important and interesting questions in international business and economy, develop and/or test theory, improve on prior studies, explore interesting phenomena, review and synthesize existing research, and evaluate many methodologies used in this field. The mission of JIBE is to publish research that tests, extends, or builds business and economic theory and contributes to management practice.

JIBE welcomes a diverse range of research methods and is open to papers that rely on various angles and perspectives including case studies, statistical inference, qualitative data, verbal theory, computational models, mathematical models, or mixed methods.
