Editorial Policy

Thunderbird International Business Review is a refereed practitioner journal, published six times a year, which aims to be the most trusted source of useful and innovative thought leadership for global business leaders. Its primary audience includes international managers, academicians, and executives in international business and government. The globalization of markets and businesses brings the need for more active communication and a greater exchange of ideas and research among scholars and practitioners throughout the world.

Thunderbird International Business Review encourages the development of innovative ideas and new research methods for understanding the challenges confronting global business. Papers should help bridge the gap between academics and the business community. The journal encourages applied research that develops implications for international business practitioners.

Priority will be given to papers having a carefully developed methodology, with insightful and practical solutions to international business issues. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome. Country studies, interviews with international managers and practitioners, and reviews of current global business books will also be published.

The topical areas include all aspects of global business, including human resource management, marketing, finance, cross cultural communication and negotiation, as well as economic, political, legal, policy analysis, sociological, technological and environmental issues.
