Business Research publishes high-quality articles covering both traditional fields of business administration and cross-functional, multidisciplinary research that reflects the complex character of business problems. Of particular interest are articles devoted to developing novel perspectives or exploring new domains of research. Business Research is not tied to any particular subfield, type of analysis, or national context. It guarantees a review of a maximum of ten weeks with a definite decision after a maximum of 2 rounds. Accepted papers will immediately appear online before integrated into issues. Business Research highly welcomes detailed appendices with data sets, program codes, spreadsheets, videos and other complementary material that allow for better understanding and replicating research.
SpringerOpen journals normally request an article processing charge (APC) for each manuscript accepted after peer review. The APC is essential to ensure that the journal remains free of charge for readers everywhere. However, publication costs for articles published in Business Research are covered by the German Academic Association of Business Research, so authors do not need to pay an article processing charge.
Business Research operates a double-blind peer review process.
