Aims and Scope

The Journal of Competitiveness Studies is an interdisciplinary blind peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the competitive positioning of firms in the global marketing and on national competitiveness in a changing global business environment. In its attempt to provide a fine balance between theory and practice, the journal combines conceptual analysis and normative considerations in order to shape the discourse on competitiveness in the scholarly and policy circles.

As global economic performance and growth have witnessed a shift toward emerging economies and toward further involvement of MNCs in sunrise industries, the area of competitiveness studies offers opportunities for scholars, practitioners, and policy makers to thoughtfully reflect on challenges that business organizations and societies face to achieve sustainable growth and optimally meet the expectations of active and demanding segments of world’s population. The Journal of Competitiveness Studies seeks high quality work that explores avenues on how to compete effectively and or revive organizations and industries within and across nations to cope with rising expectations of stakeholders.

Articles in the Journal of Competitiveness Studies will deal with pressing questions of competitiveness that are of interest to scholars and practitioners. They will cover a broad range of subjects, not only organizational performance and economic growth but also sociological and historical aspects. Contributors with interdisciplinary perspectives and those who have interest in international competitiveness are encouraged to send their thoughtful contributions.
