The Business Studies Journal  is sponsored by the Business Studies Academy , an affiliate of the Allied Academies.  The Journal is published by Whitney Press, but the Editorial Board is appointed by the BSJ and the Board exercises control over the editorial content of the Journal.  The Journal is currently published once each year. Authors of manuscripts are invited to make direct submissions at any time. In addition, the Journal encourages participants in Allied Academies' conferences to submit their manuscripts for accelerated review. The current time for review of a direct submission is approximately three months.  The current time for review of an accelerated submission is one month.


The BSJ is a double blind, peer refereed journal which publishes qualitative research in business or in business issues. The mission of the journal is to expand the boundaries of the literature by supporting the exchange of ideas and insights which further the understanding of the field.  Its current acceptance rate for manuscripts is 25%.


More details on the types of manuscripts published and the categories of research accepted are displayed in the Journal Matrix section of this website.  Authors who would like to discuss the potential for editorial board interest in a manuscript may contact the Editor by email.


Individuals interested in becoming members of the Editorial Board should contact the Executive Director by email. The Journal is interested in expanding its Board and solicits inquiries.
