In the Eberly College of Business
Journal Office, we edit two journals: Journal
of Competitiveness Studies and the Competition Forum.
The Journal of Competitiveness Studies is an interdisciplinary blind
peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the competitive positioning of firms in
the global market and on national competitiveness in a changing global business
environment. The journal combines conceptual analysis and normative
considerations in order to shape the discourse on competitiveness in scholarly
and policy circles.
in JCS deal
with pressing questions of competitiveness that are of interest to scholars and
practitioners. They cover a broad range of subjects, from organizational
performance and economic growth to sociological and historical aspects.
Contributors with interdisciplinary perspectives and those who have an interest
in international competitiveness are encouraged to send their contributions.
Competition Forum is a leading
scholarly outlet focusing on business competition in the global marketplace. It
provides a forum for understanding the nature of competition, global
interdependence and connectivity, and the essence of competing on a global
scale. In addition, CF presents original articles on a wide range of
subjects related to business conduct and operations within and across nations.
Both empirical and conceptual papers are welcome. Papers written by emerging
scholars are encouraged. All papers submitted should be original and not under
consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts are subject to
double-blind peer review.
CF focuses on broadening the understanding of the nature of the
marketplace in a globalized economy where complex actors respond simultaneously
and instantaneously to market signals, thereby widening the arena of
competition without limiting organizational goals to mere simple profit. That
is, business organizations should purposefully engage in activities which
ultimately optimize their long- term achievements and strengthen their capacity
for renewal and growth. Accordingly, CF seeks to enhance firms’ abilities
to sustain their market long-term vitality, while effectively serving their
previous issues of
