Aims & Scope

American Business Review (ABR) is a leading academic business journal with a global audience of businesses, business faculty, and business students. Manuscripts published can be from any discipline or multidisciplinary as long as the ABR audience takeaways are clearly articulated.

Relaunched in 2020, ABR is published by the University of New Haven and the relaunch coincides with the centennial celebration of the University of New Haven. The journal continues to appear as an “A’” level journal in the Australian Business Dean Council (ABDC) journal list in Fall 2019.

We welcome submissions of manuscripts by researchers, and scholars from all disciplines provided the manuscript speaks to one or more of the global ABR audience. These audiences are (1) Businesses (2) Business faculty (3) Business students. We define businesses to include small, medium and large businesses in any country. Our definition of businesses also includes organizations in the non-profit or non-governmental organizations. Business Faculty includes all faculty who teach at any level globally (including Bachelors, Masters or Ph.D. or Executive Programs). Similarly, Business Students include all full time and part-time business students.

Manuscripts that are conceptual or empirical are both welcome. We welcome both qualitative and quantitative methodologies for empirical manuscripts. See more details in Author Guidelines.
