Founded in 2011, Global Strategy Journal is the leading journal on global strategic management research. It aims to shape the direction of conversations on the interaction between the global context and the strategy and strategic management of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. The global strategic management domain encompasses the strategic management, organization, and success of multinational organizations; the bidirectional interaction of the global business environment and organizational strategies; comparative strategies in different national settings; and the comparative effect of regional and national contexts on the strategies of domestic and multinational organizations. It publishes double-blind reviewed and invited papers that offer innovative theoretical perspectives or provide tests of empirical relationships based on quantitative or qualitative analyses.
GSJ is targeted at publishing the most influential global strategy research in the world.
In 2015, across six key JCR scales (total citations; 2-year impact factor; 5-year impact factor, immediacy index; Eigenfactor score; article influence score), GSJ had median ranking of #5 among 9 international management journals in the combined Management and Business lists; listed as an aspirant top international journal by the Erasmus Research Institute; recognized on the Danish Ministry List; listed as an "A" journal by the Australian Business Deans Council for the national assessment; listed as a "3" journal ("highly regarded") in 2015 by the Association of Business Schools (UK); included in the Social Sciences Citation Index.
JCR article influence score of 1.55 in 2015 (#2 among international management journals in the JCR “Business” and “Management” lists), as well as 5-year impact factor of 3.66 (#2 among international management journals in the JCR “Business” and “Management” lists)
During the journal’s first four years, from late 2010 through the end of 2014, almost 700 unique scholars based in more than 50 countries submitted articles to GSJ.
GSJ Prize at 2015 EIBA Annual Conference
Global Strategy Journal recently sponsored the Best Conference Paper for MNE Strategy and Organization Track at the 2015 EIBA (European International Business Academy) Annual Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Dec 1-3. Torben presented award certificates to the winners, Helen Shanqing Du and Rene Belderbos, University of Leuven, Belgium and Anthony Goerzen, Queen’s Unversity, Canada, for their paper, “Global city connectivity and the establishment of MNC regional headquarters”. GSJ’s contribution was used by EIBA to help fund the travel of a student whose thesis proposal was accepted for the doctoral symposium, rather than a payment to the winning authors. We trust that the award winning authors, two of whom are on GSJ’s editorial review board, will give strong consideration to GSJ as an outlet for their outstanding work, and that our sponsorship will encourage even more members of EIBA to recognize GSJ as the premier outlet for global strategy research.
