Focus and Scope
The Transnational Journal of Business (TJB) is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary and international journal published by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The TJB publishes manuscripts that link teaching and research to enhance student learning outcomes. More specifically, the Journal is interested in interdisciplinary research that promotes teaching excellence in the various academic disciplines of business to include all theoretical and applied domains.

Mission Statement
The mission of the TJB is to provide a forum for a dialogue to advance teaching excellence through research across the disciplines in business. To this end, the TJB welcomes manuscripts from all ACBSP individual members. The goal is to facilitate a linkage between teaching and research at member institutions.

Transnational Journal of Business — Call for Papers
In July 2016 a revised Transnational Journal of Business--Open Call for Papers was released. This remains an Open Call for Papers format. It includes a new emphasis on a theme for the Journal: Preparing Students for Career Success, which is the theme of ACBSP Conference 2017 in Anaheim, California.

A History of Scholarly Work — ACBSP Annual Edition
ACBSP published three volumes of the scholarly journal ACBSP Annual Edition, between 2010-12. The fundamental objective of the first journal was to provide a venue for ACBSP members and others to present their research and findings, engage in scholarly research and inquiry, and support and improve classroom teaching. Articles featured in each of the three volumes went through a rigorous double-blind peer review process prior to final acceptance for publication.

Evolving the Scholarly Journal
In 2013, a decision was made to cease publication of the ACBSP Annual Edition and create a scholarly journal with a new name, The Transnational Journal of Business. A Scholar-Practitioner Publications Committee was formed, comprised of ACBSP members who would serve as the Editorial Policy Board for the TJB and lead the effort to launch this new journal.
