change in policy announced by the Editor-in-Chief
on behalf of
all members in the editorial board
To balance the contribution between
business and economics as well as to justify the journal title,
International Journal of Business and Economics (or IJBE for short)
decides to substantially invite submissions related to business
starting from 2012 issues. To be precise, IJBE now has two tracks:
economics and business. Every effort will be made to

a due date.
In closing, IJBE will also be
interested in working on Special Issues to promote the research on
specific and advanced topics in both tracks. Proposals (from
potential guest editors) as such are solicited all year round.
