De Gruyter is a major German
publisher of scholarly journals, based in Berlin. (De Gruyter is a scholarly publishing house that originated in 1749 when King Frederick II of Prussia granted a bookstore the royal privilege to
print books.) The GEJ is published both in electronic and print. Berkeley Electronic Press, the previous publisher,
published only in electronic form.
Aims and Scope
The GEJ seeks to publish original and innovative research, as well as novel analysis, relating
to the global economy. While its main focus is economic, the GEJ is a multi-disciplinary journal. The GEJ's contents mirror
the diverse interests and approaches of scholars involved with the international dimensions of business, economics, finance,
history, law, marketing, management, political science, human ecology, and related areas. The GEJ also welcomes scholarly
contributions from officials with government agencies, international agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
One over-arching theme that unites IT&FA members is the complex globalization process,
involving flows of goods and services, money, people, and information. As a result, the GEJ invites submissions that address
important aspects of globalization. Such articles might focus on the flows mentioned above, key innovations and ideas that
shape the globalization process, or on institutions, laws, and agreements (such as the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank) that
structure the global economy. Academic studies that weigh the impact of globalization on people, communities, nations, regions,
industries, and business will also receive consideration.
The GEJ also
invites submissions on global economy issues that reach across traditional academic boundaries, and are interdisciplinary,
or multi-disciplinary, in character. While the journal will consider narrower studies, submitters should strive to present
their conclusions to a broader audience without sacrificing rigor or scientific validity.
Globalization-related topics of particular relevance to the GEJ include but are not limited to:
Finance and Investments
Fiscal and Monetary Policy
Human Resource Management
Law and Governance
Managerial Decision Making
National and Regional Studies
Outsourcing and Offshoring
Trade in Goods and Services
General Submission Rules
Any original work in the fields mentioned
above can be submitted. Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal
or book (print or electronic). "Publication" in a working-paper series, or conference proceedings, does not constitute
prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to the GEJ, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently
under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic
or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at the GEJ. If you have concerns about these submission terms,
please contact the editor.
Who Can Submit?
may submit an original article to be considered for publication in the Global Economy Journal provided he or she owns the
copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Authors are
the initial owners of the copyrights to their works (an exception in the non-academic world to this might exist if the authors
have, as a condition of employment, agreed to transfer copyright to their employer).
Articles should be prepared in Microsoft Word format. The Global Economy Journal,
like most other De Gruyter publications, has no general rules about the formatting of articles for initial submission. There
are rules governing the formatting of the final submission. Relating to final submissions, see http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/dggej.
Using De Gruyter's software to manage
the review process from time of submission to time of publication, the GEJ strives to provide authors with a decision to publish
(or not publish) within three months of submission. For unsolicited submissions, editors normally will seek at least two blind
reviews from senior scholars in the field.
