Journal of Competitiveness Studies

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 market and on national competitiveness in a changing global business environment. The journal combines conceptual analysis and normative considerations in order to shape the discourse on competitiveness in scholarly and policy circles.

Articles in the Journal of Competitiveness Studies deal with pressing questions of competitiveness that are of interest to scholars and practitioners. They cover a broad range of subjects, from organizational performance and economic growth to sociological and historical aspects. Contributors with interdisciplinary perspectives and those who have an interest in international competitiveness are encouraged to send their contributions.
