Functioning of the journal

All original research manuscripts published in JIBS are peer reviewed. Submission of manuscripts to JIBS is done via an online manuscript processing system, Manuscript Central [] . The authors are requested to identify two possible Area Editors [] for their manuscript, and also can recommend up to four reviewers, either from the Editorial Review Board (ERB) [] or the Consulting Editors Board (CEB) [] . The manuscripts are first evaluated in terms of quality and fit with the JIBS Statement of Editorial Policy [] . Articles exhibiting a poor fit or those that are not sufficiently international [] are desk-rejected. The Editor-in-Chief then decides on the appropriate editor, who in turn selects reviewers. Neither selection is limited to the names recommended by the author [ [ Information for Contributors : Journal of International Business Studies ] ] . The actual review process is double-blind, where neither the author nor the reviewers know the identity of each other.

All authors, reviewers, and editors are bound by a formal Code of Ethics [] to ensure that the integrity of the research, review, and publication process is maintained.

JIBS Decade Award

Starting in 1996 [ [ Decade Award : Journal of International Business Studies ] ] , a new award, called the JIBS Decade Award, was initiated to recognize the most influential paper published a decade ago. A selection committee evaluates the five most cited papers published in the JIBS Volume of that year and decides on the most influential paper. A special session is held at the Academy of International Business annual conference including a retrospective presentation from the award winner in addition to additional commentary.

The current winning article as well as all past winners are made available for free download on the JIBS Decade Award website [] .
