Image: Professor Barney Warf."PSU Research Review offers a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to a wide array of disciplines ranging from computer science to the humanities. Its works are theoretically informed and empirically rich. Given how narrowly specialized research publications tend to be, it affords a unique opportunity for scientists and intellectuals to engage in cross-fertilization, exposing one another to topics and ideas that may otherwise remain invisible to all but a small group of fellow believers. Such cross-pollination is essential to understanding the complexity of the world. Moreover, as most research originates in the world’s industrialized countries, PSU Research Review testifies to the wealth of knowledge emanating from the developing world."

Professor Barney Warf, University of Kansas, USA (Editor-in-Chief, Growth and Change)

Image: Professor Gary John Previts."It is my pleasure, as a member of the International Editorial Advisory Board of the PSU Research Review, to extend to the community a welcoming invitation to submit original research papers within a broad range of subjects of interest to key journal audiences of the Review. The opportunity is clear, given the aims and scope of the Review that it will seek to serve the research audience of academic to practice and policy communication. The editorial team is dedicated to provide ready and helpful assistance to potential authors in the process of evaluating and publishing high quality research."

Distinguished Professor Gary John Previts, Case Western Reserve University, USA (Editor-in-Chief, Research in Accounting Regulation)

Distinguished Professor Lee D. Parker, RMIT University, Australia (Editor-in-Chief, Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal)
