Ten AACSB-accredited US universities sponsor the publication
United Kingdom, February 2011 – Emerald Group Publishing Limited is proud to announce the addition of the distinguished American Journal of Business to its management research portfolio. Supported by a prestigious list of North American AACSB-accredited (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) business schools, the publication is aimed at both academics and practitioners. Throughout its 25-year history, the American Journal of Business has addressed key developments and issues in the business community through the application, transfer and interpretation of knowledge.
Editor in Chief, Dr. Ashok K Gupta, Professor of Marketing at Ohio University, comments: “Nothing persuaded us more to go with Emerald than the realization that Emerald’s philosophy resonated with that of the American Journal of Business’ s guiding principle: Applying Research to Practice. With the wide reach of Emerald, we believe our authors will have greater exposure to their research and readers will have a great deal to choose from.”
Rebecca Marsh, Publishing Director at Emerald, adds: “We are delighted to be the new publisher of the American Journal of Business. The strong and prestigious editorial team is matched by an equally impressive authorship. Its study of global business topics from a North American vantage point makes the American Journal of Business a title of choice to strengthen our existing Management Science collection of journals and books. It also demonstrates our ongoing support to business research, education and practice in the region.”
The AACSB-accredited institutions that sponsor the American Journal of Business are Ball State University, Bowling Green State University, Central Michigan University, Cleveland State University, Miami University, Northern Illinois University, Ohio University, The University of Akron, The University of Toledo, and Western Michigan University.
The editorial scope of the American Journal of Business covers all the major business disciplines, including Accounting, Business Education, Business Law, E-Business, Economics, Finance Human Resources, Information Systems, International Business, Management, Marketing, New Media, Organizational Behavior, Production Operations, Small Business, and Social Impact.
Volume 26, Issue 1, is the first issue of the American Journal of Business published by Emerald. The journal publishes discipline-based scholarship and, in line with Emerald’s publishing philosophy, it welcomes contributions that apply research to practice.
The journal can be purchased as a single subscription or as part or the Emerald Management Science ejournal collection. Subscribers to the Emerald Management Plus ejournal collection will gain automatic access to this acquired title as part of their subscription.
