Submissions to the Journal of World Business (JWB) topped 600 in 2016 at 631 new papers for the year. JWB has been housed at CGL since September 2015 when CGL Faculty Director Dr. Jonathan Doh took over as editor-in-chief and CGL Director Kim Cahill assumed the role of managing editor. This figure doubles the number of submissions in 2014, the year before JWB moved to the Center for Global Leadership.
JWB, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015, was upgraded by the UK Association of Business Schools to a quality rating of “4” (up from “3”), the only international business journal to achieve that status. In the UK and Europe, and increasingly in North America and elsewhere, this ranking is the definitive reference of business journal quality.
