Global Partnership Management Journal and Institute is committed to the publication of original papers ranging from empirical scholarly research to theoretical or speculative articles, all on a variety of topics under the category of business management with a global context. In addition to the global management focus, however, the GMJ seeks submissions for the publication with a decidedly social science application or approach; that is, writing on global management predominately connected with the subfields of social science, such as: business education, business ethics, communication studies, economics, entrepreneurship, ethnic and ethnographic studies, globalization and globalization studies, history, geopolitics and international relations, human resource management, human values and belief systems, intercultural studies, organizational behavior and theory, psychology, sociology, strategic management.
First of all the submitted papers undergo an internal review process. The editor makes an initial decision if the manuscript should be sent for the peer review or be rejected without an external review. Articles can be rejected at this stage for different reasons such as similarity with a recently published article, the topic is outside of the scope of the GPMJ&I, little new information is provided, important flaws in the scientific validity, or an unprofessional presentation. This process normally takes two weeks. If the editor decides the article may be of interest to our readers, it is then sent out for an external peer review.
The editor consults the editorial board upon identifying potential reviewers based on their expertise in the field. Two reviewers are identified for each submitted manuscript.
Potential reviewers are contacted by the editorial secretary about their availability and interest in reviewing. Inquiries to reviewers are sent by e-mail, which include the manuscript abstract and the assignment deadline. When potential reviewers agree to make a review, they are permitted access to the manuscript and reviewing instructions. The reviewers’ names are also unknown to manuscript author(s). The reviewing process lasts four weeks. After the reviewing process, authors receive the decision from the editorial board as follows: accepted, accepted with slight changes, revise and resubmit, rejected.
This journal provides open access as we believe that making research freely available to the public largely supports the global exchange of knowledge.
