United Kingdom, April 2010 – Emerald Group Publishing Limited is pleased to announce the addition of the distinguished University of San Francisco journal, Journal of Asia Business Studies, to its management research list. With its prestigious editorial board including prominent and distinguished scholars and experts from top business schools in the U.S. and around the world, the publication aims to cover the pressing issues facing both companies working cross-culturally in Asia and Asian companies dealing with challenging Western markets.
Emerald’s first issue will be Vol. 4:2 (May 2010). The journal can be purchased as a single subscription or as part of either the Emerald Management Plus database or the Emerald International Business Subject Collections. Both databases also include the back archive of previously published issues.
Professors Roger (Rongxin) Chen and Nicholas S. P. Tay, co-editors-in-chief from University of San Francisco, commented: “We are excited about the acquisition. By leveraging Emerald’s resources and capabilities, we are sure that this transition will help to significantly grow the Journal of Asia Business Studies. This is especially important as Asian business, and related research, attract more attention and interests among both business and academic communities.”
Emerald’s Publishing Director Rebecca Marsh, commented: “We are delighted that the University of San Francisco School of Business and Management has approached Emerald to be the new publishers of the Journal of Asia Business Studies. The strong and very international editorial team is matched by an equally impressive authorship. Emerald has a number of titles in the area of international business and Journal of Asia Business Studies enhances this portfolio greatly through its focus on Asia. Features such as the Executive Interview supports Emerald’s aim to more closely align research with the world of business. We very much look forward to working with the University of San Francisco to build on the success of the journal that has been achieved so far and to raise its profile in the international research community even higher.”
Journal of Asia Business Studies welcomes papers in all the major business disciplines including (but not limited to): accounting, e-commerce entrepreneurship, ethics, finance, international business, marketing, management and strategy. Content is published in English and articles are subject to a double-blind peer review process.
