journal description

Small Business International Review (e-ISSN 2531-0046) is a peer-reviewed e-journal devoted to the publication of original research articles concerning the broad field of SMEs. It provides Fully Open Access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Authors are not asked to pay Article Processing Charges (APCs) for this journal in any case. The journal offers a permanent open call for papers. The articles can be sent using the platform of the journal or can be sent by attaching the document to the address indicating in the subject: '[SBIR] Article sent'. To submit your manuscript through the platform click here.

The editors are pleased to announce that the publishing model of the journal changed. Rather than publishing conventional complete online issues at fixed intervals, the journal moved to a continuous publication (CP) model. The central aspect of the new publishing model is that articles will be published online in their final formats (PDF and XML-JATS), with their final citation details, as soon as they have been accepted and proofread. As a result, the waiting time between submission and final publication is considerably reduced, and the article will be assigned a permanent DOI as well (more information). Small Business International Review averages 18-20 weeks from manuscript submission to publication with a rejection rate of 73.4%.
