International Journal of Business Innovation and Research (IJBIR)
International Journal of Business Innovation and Research (IJBIR) is a fully
refereed journal, covering the new developments in theory and applications
of business and entrepreneurship innovation strategies, methods and tools to
enhance organisational competitiveness.
Business innovation significantly contributes to the improvement in
enterprise productivity and quality. Innovation and research are integral
components of business strategy and success. Designing and developing
suitable strategies, techniques, tools and models for business innovation
and research have become an essential function of researchers and
practitioners in a global economy; new strategies, techniques and tools for
innovation and research in business will be the main focus of IJBIR.
Companies constantly look for innovative processes and methods to gain a
competitive advantage. Unfortunately, the assets and ideas in organisations
are not fully utilised to improve the value of the organisation. Organising
a process to take advantage of information technology and systems for
business innovation should be part of every organisation. One of the largest
unrealised opportunities in organisations today is fully leveraging ideas
and knowledge to transform business processes into continuing innovation.
IJBIR will act as a platform to encourage further research in business
innovation and research.
The main objective of IJBIR is to promote research and application of new
strategies, techniques and tools of business innovation and in turn the
organisational competitiveness in new economy and society. IJBIR aims to
help professionals working in the field of business innovation and research,
academic educators, industry consultants, and practitioners to contribute,
to disseminate and to learn from each other¹s work.
The global dimension is emphasised in developing appropriate strategies,
tactics, operational policies and tools for business innovation and
research. IJBIR aims to act as a forum for exchanging new ideas and sharing
practical experiences in managing and improving business innovation and
IJBIR publishes original papers, review papers, conceptual framework,
analytical and simulation models, case studies, empirical research,
technical notes, and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important
topics in business innovation and research will occasionally be published.
Business innovation and research strategies, tactics and tools of both
theoretical and practical nature are welcome.
