SN Business & Economics (ISSN: 2662-9399) is a multi- and interdisciplinary journal serving all areas of Business & Management, Economics, and Finance.

The journal’s scope is inclusive: it is open to theoretical, empirical, and policy perspectives and encourages the submission of original research, review articles, case studies and replication studies.

SN Business & Economics will feature thematic Collections/Special Issues on key research topics, edited by recognised experts in the field. Submissions are evaluated on their academic rigor and methodological soundness.

Together with the support of an international Editorial Board, we are committed to upholding the highest editorial and ethical standards. We strive to provide our authors and readers with a responsive and efficient service and offer them a highly respected home for their research.

SN Business & Economics welcomes research in, and between, all disciplines in its scope. The journal is also particularly interested in studies that address society’s grand challenges, as defined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, from a business and economic perspective.

Research arising in the Social Sciences, Operations Research, Applied Mathematics, and Management Science, is not in the journal’s remit. Two sister publications are dedicated to these areas: SN Social Sciences, and SN Operations Research Forum.
