The objective of the journal is to disseminate the newest research-based insight on business models. The Journal of Business Models constitutes an interdisciplinary platform conveying multiple-type papers, i.e. both conceptual and empirical papers and encourage methodological pluralism. It is the aim to cover a wide array of perspectives on business models, like e.g. innovation, commercialisation, exploitation, entrepreneurship, internationalization, design, facilitation, strategy, organization, accounting, performance measurement and finance.


The key audience of this journal is academics and dedicated consultants. As this journal aims at pushing the knowledge of the field to a higher level, and to becoming a core discipline in due course, the rigorousness of the review process and the quality of the published papers naturally lend themselves to an expert audience.

However, policy-makers, politicians, entrepreneurs and students with high academic aspirations will also benefit substantially from the mix of articles in this journal. For audiences with lower academic aspirations in academic terms but wanting to get a feel for the newest insights, models and application techniques, we refer to the Bookboon.com textbooks Business models networking, innovating and globalizing and The Basics of Business Models.
