Aims and scope

Perspectives of Innovation in Economics and Business (PIEB) is an international and cross-industry research journal.

PIEB is an international cross-industry journal. Articles are welcome on academics, businesses and professionals to submit papers focusing on developmental impacts of innovations, discovering economic and business perspectives.

PIEB has a specific focus to the concept of development issues both within the globe and regions. It covers broad areas of studies e.g.: technology, business, economics, education, science and other, with the purpose to facilitate synergy effects from their interaction and integration that produce value for social practice. We wish to create the environment favorable for communication that produces innovation, opens minds and serves as an exchange of ideas among regions, countries and cultures.

Given publications should have research character and must be based on principles of scientific and a professional etiquette. The final decision on inclusion of paper will be made by Editorial Board. Editorial Board reserves its right to make technical and scientific editing. In case of not accepting the Board does not provide reviews and comments but resolution on publication.

Profile

PIEB belongs to those research periodicals that stick to open access model. The journal follows funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for electronic access. In other words, we provide to readers the free online access to read and download scientific articles. This model provides greater reach of interested readers to the published articles.

In the beginning all volumes appear first as a list with names of articles and authors. At this stage the articles can have relevant abstracts and keywords, but not a pdf documents in a final version. In this phase, papers were only selected selected and are pending for review and other editorial procedures. Articles in pdf are available for download only after final updating - when they already passed the whole editorial process and are agreed with the authors. When this process end, the link becomes active and pdf available for download.
