Vol. 9 No. 1 (2021): Journal of Business Models, Special Issue, Selected Conference Submissions 2020

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused many events around the world to be cancelled, including the Business Model Conference 2020. The Conference Chairs, the Scientific Committee, and the Conference Committee discussed the possibility of hosting an online conference but thought that meeting virtually would not have provided participants with the same sense of community feeling experienced in previous years, when the Business Model Conference brought together international academics and practitioners from a multitude of disciplines to discuss the latest research and innovative teaching methods. Therefore, the decision was made to cancel the 2020 Conference.

Despite this, the Editorial Board of the Journal of Business Models did not want the papers submitted
to be a wasted effort; thus, it selected and reviewed the 11 papers included in this Special Issue. Originality, significance, and rigor were the three criteria that guided the selection and the review process, leading to a mix of papers that tackle business model issues from different angles and employ different research methods.

The vision of the Journal of Business Models is to constitute a rigorous international journal devoted to establishing the discipline of business models as a separately recognised core discipline in academia - as is already the case in practice.

Our business mission is to create an open source journal that is free of the ties that come along with a publisher. In turn we wish to develop a new type of profitable business model for an academic journal.

The objective of the journal is to disseminate the newest research-based insight on business models. The Journal of Business Models constitutes an interdisciplinary platform conveying multiple-type papers, i.e. both conceptual and empirical papers and encourage methodological pluralism. It is the aim to cover a wide array of perspectives on business models, like e.g. innovation, commercialisation, exploitation, entrepreneurship, internationalization, design, facilitation, strategy, organization, accounting, performance measurement and finance.
