Call for Papers


The Journal of Business Models is now an established constituent of the global business model community, and as such continues to invite paper submissions on any aspect of business model research.

Focus and Scope
The Journal of Business Models was established in 2013 to provide a high quality vehicle for the publication of work that seeks to contribute to establishing the field of business models as a separately recognised core discipline within academia, mirroring what is already the case in practice.

The field of business models is a focus for research within business that has gained significant momentum and visibility in recent years. Furthermore, it looks set to retain this momentum in the coming years and, as a result, a dedicated journal such as the Journal of Business Models offers an outlet allowing researchers working in the business model and associated fields to publicise their work. Submissions from both academics and those working within private, public and third sector organisations are welcome. The journal also seeks to encourage work underpinned by a wide range of research designs and theoretical ways of seeing.

Our business mission is to an open source journal that is free of the constraints that accompany an affiliation with a commercial publisher. In addition to providing a large measure of flexibility, such an attribute facilitates the publication of more provocative materials.

Our aim is to publish 2 standard issues a year, composed mainly of full length papers, of up to 10000 words in length, together with short papers (c2500 words).

In addition, 2 or 3 special issues will be published, details of which are included in separate calls and on the journal website.

All papers published in the journal will have been subject to a rigorous double blind review process by members of the editorial board and, where necessary, established authorities in the field.
