About This Journal

Our Story

The American Business Review (ABR), a journal published by the University of New Haven Press, appeared in print form in June 1983 as an outlet for research by business faculty across the world. Longtime faculty members recall that the legendary Dean of the School of Business, Marilou McLaughlin (ML) encouraged the founding editor, Thomas Katsaros, to develop and run the journal. Over the years ABR grew in stature and influence.

Due to logistical reasons, the ABR discontinued paper issues in 2004. The publisher converted past issues into digital form and it was indexed in ABI-Inform etc. and citations to manuscripts continued to increase. The ABR continued to be listed as an “A” journal in the Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) Journal list given its reach and impact.

The current editor, Dr. Kamal Upadhyaya, had been wanting to relaunch the journal for some time. The opportune moment arrived with the centennial celebration of the publisher. The current Dean, Dr. Brian Kench encouraged and supported the initiative. Dr. Upadhyaya teamed up with Dr. Subroto Roy (co-editor) to relaunch ABR in Spring 2020. The ABR publisher, University of New Haven celebrates its centennial year in 2020.

The ABR Editors would like to thank the University Librarian Hanko Dobi for all her support. We thank Digital Librarian, Roseanne Krzanowski and Access Services Manager, Amber Montano for their specialized knowledge and inputs. The Editors are grateful to the entire bepress/Elsevier team for their help to enable us to process manuscripts from late Fall 2019.
