Journal of Global Business and Technology
As an interdisciplinary refereed journal, the purpose of the Journal of Global Business and Technology (JGBAT) is to contribute to the advancement of knowledge related to the theory and practice of international business and technology management. Its primary goal is to present scholarly and managerially relevant articles on a wide variety of topics in international business and technology management to a broad audience in academia (educators, administrators, students), industry (business executives, consultants), as well as those involved in formulating and implementing public policy. The unique contribution of the journal is managerial policy and region-specific research. Articles should be timely and relevant. Authors are required to provide guidelines, techniques, and suggestions for problem solving in international business and technology management. Case studies relating to specific organizations, products/services, and industries are also welcome.
It is a prime objective of JGBAT to bridge the gap between theory and practice. To this end, articles should offer strong managerial insights to help in the development of action-oriented business programs and strategies.
