Editorial scope and objectives
The focus of the Multinational Business Review is upon the strategy, operations and performance of the multinational enterprise (MNE). MBR welcomes manuscripts across all areas of international business but requires that they explicitly relate to the MNE. The journal also welcomes papers from all cognate areas of international business such as economics, finance, marketing, operations, human relations, sociology, or psychology, when such papers relate their findings to the activities of the MNE.
In order to both broaden and deepen the conversation of international business, the Multinational Business Review also welcomes submissions which challenge conventional thinking and are of a controversial nature. Coverage includes, but is not limited to:
- Theoretical advances in explaining the MNE
- Multinationality and performance
- Regionalization vs. globalization
- Multinationals and development
- Organizing the internal and external networks of MNEs
Regular articles, short articles, case studies and book reviews will be considered. Certain issues may focus on a special/specific topic. MBR does not accept manuscripts about teaching materials or teaching methods.
