Journal of World Business e-Meet-the-Editors Session


Tentative date: April 11, 2020, Time: TBD


The Journal of World Business (JWB) is planning to host its first online e-meet-the-editors session on April 11, 2020. This initiative by the JWB Editorial Team is aimed at supporting scholarship in increasingly digital academia as well as improving outreach to all parts of the international business community. JWB will hold monthly e-meet-the-editors sessions.


The session will feature a panel of JWB editors who will discuss the specific goals and objectives of JWB, the recent performance of JWB, and the expectations of editors for potentially publishable papers. Open and moderated discussion will address the process of writing for publication in top international business journals, the policies and practices of JWB editors, and critical factors that shape editorial decisions on submitted manuscripts.


The overall purpose of these sessions is to help scholars and doctoral students to develop quality research papers on issues that are of relevance to JWB and other high-quality international business journals.
