The JIBRP Statement of Editorial Policy
The Journal of International Business Research and Practice (JIRBP) is a scholarly-refereed journal. The objectives of the JIRBR are to attract and publish theoretical, conceptual, and empirical manuscripts from both academics and professionals. The JIBRP promotes the advancement, theory, and practice of global business in contemporary research and teaching.

The JIBRP is multidisciplinary in scope, and interdisciplinary in content and methodology.
The JIBRP seeks to publish manuscripts with cutting-edge research that breaks new ground. Manuscripts should address real-world phenomena, problems or puzzles. The JIBRP is particularly interested in publishing papers that are constructive in nature, and/or suggest how our established theories or received understandings of issues in international business research and practices can be positively adapted or revised.
The major theme of a The JIBRP paper should highlight the insights that can be derived for the international aspects of business activity as such. Papers in which international business is in the background, or in which international business issues are secondary or peripheral to the main argument being developed, are not suitable for The JIBRP.
The JIBRP is an interdisciplinary journal that welcomes submissions from scholars in business disciplines (e.g., Accounting, marketing, finance, management) and from other disciplines (e.g., economics, political science, social science) if the manuscripts fall within the JIBRP domain statement. The JIBRP also welcomes papers that combine and integrate theories and concepts that are taken from or that can be traced to origins in different disciplines. Moreover, both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies are encouraged, as long as the studies are methodologically rigorous.
Submissions to The JIBRP must follow the journal’s Style Guide, including formatting, length and references. Poorly written or structured papers will be promptly returned to the authors.
