The Review of Business Journal

The Review of Business was first published in 1968 as a journal that concentrated on the New York economy, but it rapidly evolved to focus on business research that favors the practical and applicative side of inquiry. While we still prefer research that leads to pragmatic applications, the papers that our global review board accepts may also contain a high degree of statistical and theoretical analysis. Articles covering issues from all business sciences are welcomed, including those that focus on law, poverty and ethics.
