To speed up turnover time and avoid delays, please follow the submission requirements carefully.

Authors should also note the International Journal of Contemporary Business and Entrepreneurship (IJCBE) editorial policies regarding code sharing, editorial ethics, editorial review, reviewer guidelines and conflict of interest disclosure policy. Information on these policies is available here.

In most cases, a cover letter is not necessary. Please use the cover letter only if you have specific information for the editors such as a request for exemption from the code sharing policy, information about a potential conflict of interest or something important editors should be informed about. If you do not have such specific information to convey, do not include a cover letter.

Open Access

The IJCBE is an open access journal, which means articles are freely available to everyone.

Submission Fees

Submission to the IJCBE is free of charge.
