Founded in 2011 to publish scholarly research addressing issues in global strategic management, it is intended to be the journal of record for global and international strategy research and an important voice in the international business and strategic management conversations. The global strategy domain encompasses the strategic management, organization, and performance of multinational organizations; comparative strategies and strategic management practices in different national settings; the effects of the dynamic global business environment on organizational strategies; and the effects of locational characteristics such as culture and institutions on strategies of local and multinational organizations. It publishes both double-blind reviewed and invited papers offering theoretical perspectives and empirical studies, both quantitative and qualitative, as well as other methodologies.
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.
