Journal Information

Journal of Global Business Insights (JGBI) is an international non-profit, open access, double-blind peer-reviewed journal. JGBI, originally established in 2015, was known as the International Interdisciplinary Business-Economics Advancement Journal (IIBA Journal) from 2015-2018. The main objective of JGBI is to provide an intellectual platform and ideas for international scholars, by promoting studies related to global business. JGBI publishes original research articles, review papers and communications that identify, explain, analyze and review real-world business phenomena/issues.

JGBI is published bi-annually by the University of South Florida M3 Center. We also encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research relating to global business and management in as much detail as possible in order to promote scientific predictions and impact assessments of global change and development. Full experimental and methodical details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in Journal of Global Business Insights provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article.
