American Journal of Business

Applying Research to Practice

Established in 1985, the American Journal of Business (AJB) is an applied business publication featuring research on contemporary issues. From accounting to marketing, management to finance, the AJB prominently covers the breadth of the business disciplines as a general business outlet intended for both practitioners and academics. The journal follows a double-blind review policy by two or more reviewers, with the first review of manuscripts usually completed within 8-10 weeks of submission. The manuscript acceptance rate is approximately 25 percent. 

The American Journal of Business is listed as a “Commendable Journal” by Cabell’s Directory of Publishing Opportunities in Management and appears in respected academic journal directories including Cabell's, EBSCO, and RePEc.  The AJB has also been recognized for excellence in publications design by the Association for University Business and Economic Research.

A consortium of 10 AACSB-accredited business schools—including Ball State's Miller College of Business—supports and oversees the direction of the AJB.  As of 2011, all publishing and subscription responsibilities are handled by Emerald Group Publishing Ltd.  The American Journal of Business can be accessed through www.AJBonline.org and www.emeraldinsight.com/ajb.htm.
