This week is the third installment in the series that started in February with the question “where can my SoTL be published?” This week, the spotlight is on SoTL publication outlets for business-related fields such as: accounting, business administration, business information, business education, finance, insurance, international business, management, marketing, and economics.
The list below presents links for SoTL-friendly business journals, organized by discipline. Each link is accompanied by a brief description of each journal’s aim/scope/mission (often excerpted verbatim from each journal’s website). I hope you find this list helpful and would encourage readers of the blog to suggest additions to this list!
