The Journal's aim is to advance and disseminate research in the fields of intercultural management and ethics. Its main target audience includes scholars and practitioners interested in the mentioned fields. In the spirit of its founding organisation, the Journal encourages contributions from different fields of science dealing with the links between culture, ethics and different socio-economic areas.

The Journal offers insights into the effects of culture and ethics on business and society in a globalised world, which are relevant for scholars and practitioners in business studies, social science and other fields of science dealing with culture and ethics (e.g. health care, higher education).

Cross disciplinary approaches that address the international and cross cultural areas of society are also encouraged. Contributions from specialists working in other fields, where there is a direct critical contribution to the understanding of the main issues of the Journal are welcomed.

All contributions are expected to contribute significantly to knowledge, either by offering critical reviews of existing knowledge, challenging accepted paradigms, or presenting different cultural and ethical perspectives.

Critical comments on previously published work and perspectives that challenge key issues in the subject area are also endorsed. Reviews of conferences and other activities of scholars and practitioners’ associations are welcomed.

Journal of Intercultural Management and Ethics features innovative ideas and new research methods for understanding the challenges confronting globalization. Emphasizing applied research, the articles help to bridge the gap between scholars and practitioners.

This journal also features economic, political, legal, socio-cultural, or technological issues related to globalization.
