Journal of World Business Marks a Year of Success

JWB Logo

The Journal of World Business (JWB) marked its first full year at VSB with a number of successes. JWB, one of the top international business and management journals in the world, has been housed at CGL since September of 2015 when CGL Faculty Director Jonathan Doh took over as Editor-in-Chief and CGL Director Kim Cahill assumed the role of Managing Editor. JWB, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015, was upgraded by the UK Association of Business Schools to a quality rating of "4" (it was previously a 3), the only international business journal to achieve that status. In the U.K. and Europe, and increasingly in North America and elsewhere, this ranking is the definitive reference of business journal quality. JWB's 2014 JCR Social Sciences Edition Impact Factor was 2.388, up from 1.907 in 2013, ranking it 25 out of 115 business journals. The five-year impact factor was 3.526, up from 3.039 in 2013, ranking JWB 22 out of 110 journals. In addition, Editor-in-Chief Doh, along with JWB’s Senior Editor Team, organized a 50th anniversary issue of the journal which was published in December. It featured contributions from a range of leading prominent academics in international business and has already received widespread attention from the scholarly international business community.
