ICSB has two official Journals.
The Journal of Small Business Management (JSBM): The primary purpose of the Journal of Small Business Management (JSBM) is to publish scholarly research articles in the fields of small business management and entrepreneurship. As the official journal of the International Council for Small Business (ICSB), the JSBM is recognized as a primary instrument for projecting and supporting the goals and objectives of this organization, which include scholarly research and the free exchange of ideas. The journal, which is circulated in 60 countries around the world, is a leader in the field of small business research (read more).
The Journal of the International Council for Small Business (JICSB): This is the second official journal of ICSB and it explores the many dimensions of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) policy, economic development policy supporting MSMEs, and MSME performance. The journal is part of the International Council of Small Business (ICSB), a potent source of expertise and knowledge. The purpose of the Journal of the International Council for Small Business (JICSB) is to advance research and knowledge of policies and economic development as they relate to improving the performance and sustainability of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). To achieve this, JICSB will emphasize the relevance of the authors’ contributions to MSME practice. This unique focus creates the challenge of attracting and managing submissions of rigorous academic scholarly activity that intersect with the application of the knowledge created to operational practices of MSMEs (click here to learn more).
JICSB will have a strong focus on orientation to research, business, and industry. It will have a foot in both science and practice and can serve as a platform intermediary. This creates a number of unique strengths and opportunities in research that offer significant value to MSMEs. Articles will emphasize the relevance of the research to the actual success of MSMEs by answering the “so what” question. In addition, the Journal will link this to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to effectively map them when we are talking about MSMEs.
