Dear Colleagues,


The editorial and publishing teams of the “Critical Perspectives on International Business” Journal are very pleased to inform you that the journal has been accepted in the Thomson Reuters Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) as one of only two IB journals in a total of 77 business journals.


The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) was launched late 2015 as a new database within Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science™ Core Collection, in order to complement the existing Web of Science databases (the Science Citation Index Expanded, the Social Science Citation Index, and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index).


Critical Perspectives on International Business has been accepted in the ESCI for its high quality peer reviewed content. As well as providing a mark of quality for the journal, inclusion in the ESCI will allow papers published in the journal to be searchable, discoverable and citable via the Web of Science. Through visibility in the Web of Science, authors will likely increase their H-index and influence in their fields.


We would like to take this opportunity to let you know that the journal is seeking special issue proposals on topics that address international business (IB) matters from a non-mainstream and critical perspective to appear in the journal over the years 2017-2019. For more information on topics and the process, please visit:


The journal welcomes papers at any time. Please visit the journal’s web site for more information:
