Aims and scope

Review of International Business and Strategy (RIBS) (formerly known as International Journal of Commerce and Management) publishes high-quality peer-reviewed research articles related to international business and global strategy.

The journal welcomes empirical studies that employ quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods; and that investigate issues at the macro and/or micro levels. In addition, the title considers theoretical/conceptual studies that are firmly grounded in the IB/global strategy literature.

Review of International Business and Strategy is keen to present contemporary and innovative research that proposes new perspectives or challenges existing theories, and that advances the understanding of issues related to international business and global strategy.

Themes covered by the journal include (but are not limited to):

  • Internationalisation of firms and international entrepreneurship
  • Effects of the international environment (political, social, economic and institutional) on international business activities and firm strategies
  • Knowledge transfer strategies and innovation in MNEs
  • Location strategies in international business activities.
