Journal of Business Models: New Thematic Section on Sustainable Business Models

The Journal of Business Models (JOBM) recently introduced new thematic sections and hired new Associate Editors. The journal made the next step in its development as the leading 100% open access journal on business model research.

This includes a new thematic section on sustainable business models!

Green, circular, and inclusive – JOBM invites papers dealing with all sorts of business models for sustainability. This new thematic section deals with theoretical and empirical papers shedding light on how sustainability ventures, ecopreneurs, and social entrepreneurs contribute to a sustainable development of the natural environment, society, and economy.

JOBM is particularly interested in cross-disciplinary research that helps better understand how business models can be used to create sustainable value. Check out the new website and submit your research on sustainable business models!
