The objective of the journal is to disseminate the newest research-based insights on business models. The Journal of Business Models constitutes an interdisciplinary platform conveying multiple-type papers, i.e. both conceptual and empirical papers , as well as a fast track short paper section. The journal encourages methodological pluralism. It is the aim to cover a wide array of perspectives on business models, like e.g. innovation, management, commercialization, entrepreneurship, internationalization, design thinking, strategy, organization, accounting, performance measurement and finance. 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. Thus, in addition to the academic audience, policy-makers, entrepreneurs and students with high academic aspirations will also benefit substantially from the mix of articles in this journal.
