Academy of Business Journal 

The Academy of Business Journal is intended for parties that are interested in the theoretical and applied applications of business research. The intended readership consists of both researchers and practitioners. The emphasis of the journal is on applications, not the statistical methodology used to derive the applications.  Thus, any empirical work should be clearly outlined so that a wide spectrum audience can follow the practical applications of the manuscript.  The goal of the publication is to connect theoretical empirical research to real world business situations.


The Academy of Business Journal is published annually.  Currently, the Academy of Business Journal has an acceptance rate of 9%.  Because the scope of each issue is defined by a relatively narrow field of research, authors should make sure their submission is relevant to the area and/or special issue of the upcoming journal.​

Review Process

All articles are double blind peer reviewed within 90 days of submission.  There is no submission fee for any individual that is a member of the Academy of Business Research. Membership is given gratis for a year to any conference registrant.  Membership may also be purchased for $150 per year that includes a subscription to all the journals.  All articles should follow APA guidelines.
