General info / Call for Papers

The Business Renaissance Quarterly, ISSN # 1930-7462, is a double blind reviewed journal, set out by the Business Renaissance Institute, and focused on the publication of papers and articles pertaining to improvement of workplace performance, and enhancement of the quality of life for all stakeholders in a business environment.

The journal focuses on a dual reading audience: Scholars with an interest in the topic, and Business Executives.

Based on the journal's reading audience, the type of papers considered for publication are also dual: there is a scholarly section, and a business oriented part.

  • The Scholarly section consists of papers varying in length between 3000 and 5000 words, with proper citation and adherence to APA V format.
  • The Business Executive section consists of papers varying in length between 1500 and 2500 words, written in more popular language, and thus more appealing to business executives.

  • Purpose of the BRQ

    The board members of the Business Renaissance Quarterly are aware of the global impact and influence of business organizations, and consequentially, the necessity of a source that strongly emphasizes business' responsibility toward performing at a level that ensures increased return on investment, along with enhanced quality and quantity of output, and overall elevated human satisfaction in- and outside the immediate business environment.

    It is because of the need for greater understanding in this area that the BRQ focuses on the unification of products created by strong, positive, insightful business-oriented minds.

    This, then, is the main reason for the existence of the
    Business Renaissance Quarterly.

    Invitation for Submission
    The Business Renaissance Quarterly, BRQ, invites you to participate in the journal. Because our focus, as indicated above, is geared toward business renaissance, we accept papers that are reviewing processes, procedures, research outcomes, and suggestions regarding the improvement of the quality of work life for all business stakeholders.

    Scholars, Doctoral students, and established Business Executives are highly encouraged to submit papers to BRQ for review. All submissions are subject to a two person blind peer review process.
