Call for Special Issue proposals
JIBP has issued a call for Special Issue proposals, with a deadline of June 1, 2024. We are primarily interested in emerging policy-relevant topics that affect or relate to international business activity. Themes for Special Issues may involve new theoretical approaches, or substantial reorientation of existing theories, and may open up new areas of empirical research. JIBP is a cross-disciplinary journal and especially welcomes Special Issues that introduce novel concepts and perspectives from related (or hitherto-unrelated) fields.
