Founded in 1960, Business & Society was the first journal exclusively dedicated to publishing research in the field of business and society. In their editorial from the upcoming July issue of Business & Society, editors Andrew Crane, Irene Henriques, Bryan Husted, and Dirk Matten discuss the scope of the business and society field relevant to the journal.
From the editorial:
Our vision for Business & Society is for the journal to become the leading, peer-reviewed outlet for scholarly work dealing specifically with the intersection of business and society. So what counts as the intersection of business and society? As a journal, we have to determine the boundaries of the field that we are covering. Certainly, we have found that when making decisions on whether manuscripts should go out for review, we must first decide whether the manuscript fits the journal. This is not an exact science—it is always a judgment call—but as editors, we feel it is necessary to provide prospective authors some guidance on what, in our opinion, fits and does not fit. As such the purpose of this Editors’ Insight is to clarify some of our thinking on this issue.
