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 the most recent Journal Citation Report (released in June 2021), GSJ had a two-year impact factor of 7.571.
GSJ has been listed as a "4" journal ("top journal") in 2021 by the Chartered Association of Business Schools (UK); listed as an "A" journal by the Australian Business Deans Council for the national assessment; and listed as a primary set management journal by the Erasmus Research Institute of Management.
