Founded in 2011, Global Strategy Journal is the leading journal on global strategic management research. It aims to shape the direction of conversations on the interaction between the global context and the strategy and strategic management of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. The global strategic management domain encompasses the strategic management, organization, and success of multinational organizations; the bidirectional interaction of the global business environment and organizational strategies; comparative strategies in different national settings; and the comparative effect of regional and national contexts on the strategies of domestic and multinational organizations. It publishes double-blind reviewed and invited papers that offer innovative theoretical perspectives or provide tests of empirical relationships based on quantitative or qualitative analyses.
GSJ is targeted at publishing the most influential global strategy research in the world.
In 2019, across six key JCR scales (total citations, two-year impact factor, five-year impact factor, immediacy index, Eigenfactor score, article influence score), GSJ is 52nd out of 226 in the Management category.

Beware of Forged Acceptance Letters
The Global Strategy Journal does not charge an acceptance fee for papers. Any letter that appears to be from a Co-Editor of an SMS journal promising a manuscript's acceptance in exchange for money has been forged. All legitimate correspondence related to the review and acceptance of the paper will reference the manuscript number assigned by the submission system, ScholarOne.
