The International Small Business Journal (ISBJ) is a truly global, multi-disciplinary forum for the dissemination and discussion of research on the small business. The emphasis of the journal is on high quality, research based studies which contribute to theory, critical understanding and policy formulation on small firms.

Papers published in the ISBJ cover theoretical, methodological and empirical studies of small firms from a broad range of disciplines and perspectives. The emphasis is on research excellence in the field of enquiry, as the journal endeavours to provide a critical forum for world class contributions on the analysis of small firms.

This refereed journal is of relevance to academics, policy makers and analysts, in government and business, seeking to understand the sector, trade and business institutions, small business representative bodies and those in support agencies.

"I have been proud to be associated with The International Small Business Journal since it began 20 years ago. Over that time it has published high quality articles from a wide variety of disciplinary perspectives." David Storey, Warwick University, UK
