The International Journal for Business Education is a double-blind, peer-reviewed journal with an international review board. The IJBE currently has an acceptance rate of 30% or less submitted manuscripts. You can find the IJBE on Cabell's International WhiteList.
Due to the international nature of the journal, two or more editors work together to facilitate the review process. Currently, one editor is located in the United States and the other editor is located in Austria.
The editor from outside of the United States handles all manuscripts that originate from the United States. This editor assigns the manuscripts to the appropriate reviewers, handles all correspondence with the author(s) and reviewers, and makes the final decision on acceptance.
The editor from the United States handles manuscripts that originate from outside the United States. Again, this editor assigns the manuscripts to the appropriate reviewers, handles all correspondence with the author(s) and reviewers, and makes the final decision on acceptance.
By following this process, it is possible that one or more of the editors will also have a manuscript published in the journal. Additionally, it is also possible that someone who has submitted a manuscript is also selected to be a reviewer.
All manuscripts will receive a double-blind review by three external reviewers located in multiple countries. If there is not a clear decision by the reviewers, the editor will request an additional review from one or two reviewers.
All manuscripts are required to undergo an institutional review process, and a statement to this effect must be included in all submitted manuscripts. The journal utilizes a plagiarism check tool for all manuscripts.
Accepted manuscripts will be published in the next issue of IJBE. The deadline for submission is ongoing. A publication decision will be made within 90 - 120 days of manuscript receipt, when possible. Once accepted and properly formatted, manuscripts will be published electronically on the website.
