Single-Country Journals Are Finnished
| Nicolai Foss |
There once was a Swedish Journal of Economics. And, of course, once there were lots of journals in languages other than English. But, as the US national journals increasingly became everyone’s international journals, and as scientific communities became internationalized, single-country, national journals increasingly became a thing of the past and morphed into at least regional journals (thus, the Swedish Journal of Economics. became the Scandinavian Journal of Economics). The latest journal to give is the journal formerly known as the Finnish Journal of Business Economics, now becoming a regional journal as the Nordic Journal of Business. This is a sound initiative.The Euro journal scene is not exactly crowded, and the other regional journal, the Scandinavian Journal of Management may be in need of a bit of competitive pressure. Submit a paper! (I am on the advisory board for the new/old journal ;-)).
