Focus and Scope

International Research Journal of Business Studies (IRJBS) is comprised of three constructs. The word “International” refers to our mission to provide readers with relevant fields of studies and to involve authors in giving their contributions in an international scale. ”Research Journal” refers to our aim to function as a media to disseminate research findings regardless of methodological differences. ”Business Studies” refers to the boundary of the fields of studies that we serve i.e. encompassing all disciplines and paradigms related to the studies of any facet of business.

The primary objective of IRJBS is to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the area of business studies by presenting results of an empirical study, include rigorous research method and provide managerial implication to the readers.

The IRJBS welcomes manuscripts in business management, which includes the areas of strategic management, marketing management, finance management, organization, human resources management, and operations management.

Starting Vol. 13 No.2, the International Research Journal of Business Studies seeks to publish high quality research with questions, evidence and conclusions that are relevant to business studies on corporate management and engaging to corporate management scholars.

More specifically, the IRJBS seeks to publish papers that ask and help to answer important and interesting questions in managing the corporation, develop and/or test theory, replicate prior studies, explore interesting phenomena, review and synthesize existing research, and evaluate the many methodologies used in the corporate management field. We welcome manuscripts in corporations within one geographic and/or across the geographic and business spectrum which include but are not limited to corporate strategy, corporate governance, corporate organization and human capital, corporate finance, corporate marketing, and the operations aspect of corporation. We appreciate a diverse range of researcher methods and are open to papers that rely on statistical inference, qualitative data, verbal theory, computational models and mathematical models.
