Editor Discussion Panel

How to Publish Sustainable Business Model Research?

Publishing in scientific journals is important for every researcher, particularly for early-stage researchers who have to publish in high-quality journals to make a career in academia. But sometimes it is not an easy task to identify the optimal journal for articles dealing with business model topics. This gets even more challenging when these articles deal with sustainability issues, as this brings together two domains: business model and sustainability research.

The experts on our panel will discuss such challenges from an editor’s perspective to offer a ‘behind-the-scenes’ perspective on what happens when journals have to deal with topics that are rather new, less ‘mainstream’, and maybe beyond their traditional disciplinary boundaries.
