Testimonials of the JGM author experience

"Thank you so much for your help and support. I have seen significant improvements in the final version of the article from the first submission thanks to you and your team. I'm extremely happy about the outcomes." 

– Dr. Kate-yue Zhang, Assistant Professor of International Business, The American University of Paris (2017)
 

"It was my very first contact with your journal, and I was impressed seeing how efficient editorial processes you implemented. I was also impressed how helpful and disciplined reviewers of JGM are – something to be much appreciated by the submitting authors."

Dr. Michal K. Lemanski, Assistant Professor of International Business, Nottingham University Business School China (2016)

"I compared the first version of my paper with the last one. It has definitely so much improved. Without the help of your reviews, I hadn't achieved this improvement. You told me once your reviewers are the best and would help me to make the paper better. And yes, you were most definitely right: They are the best."

– Dr. Christian Linder,University of Bamberg (2015).

"The editorial team at the Journal of Global Mobility is truly first-rate. They provided my co-authors and me with an extremely thoughtful and detailed review of our submission. We were tremendously impressed by the quality of their analysis and commentary, and the fact that it was delivered in a mere thirty days. It has been humbling to see the collaborative blind review process work so well."

– Jason Ryan, PhD, Associate Professor of Marketing, California State University (2013).

Editorial objectives

Research on expatriates and global mobility

JGM provides an outlet for research on expatriate management and other topics of global mobility. JGM caters to a community of scholars and practitioners interested in theoretical and empirical perspectives of physical global mobility as well as antecedents, correlates and consequences of activities and phenomena associated with global mobility.

New domains or new insights from re-examination

JGM is especially interested in exploring new domains of global mobility or new insights gained from re-examining established topics. While preferring empirical contributions, achieved with quantitative or qualitative methodology, or a mix of them, rigorous theoretical developments as well as focused but comprehensive literature reviews are also welcome.

One month turnaround policy for first submission

JGM aims to provide constructive feedback to authors within one month of submission of a new manuscript. Our 30-day turnaround policy is facilitated by the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors, who will encourage high-quality, detailed, and developmental feedback from reviewers to all submitting authors. However, the quality of each manuscript can influence the effectiveness of the review process. As such, manuscripts that are well developed and well written make the review process easier to facilitate and generally results in better feedback to authors.

Editorial criteria

JGM focuses primarily on white-collar, skilled workers/professionals and their immediate context at work and outside work.

Coverage

JGM mainly publishes research on expatriates, corporate and non-corporate, but we are also interested in associated topics. For example, families and partners of expatriates, international business travelers, inpatriates, repatriates, short-term international assignees, and talent management. 

Recent Special Issues

  • Context and Global Mobility (Volume 2, Issue 2) – Guest Editors: Professor Wolfgang Mayrhofer and Dr B. Sebastian Reiche. This special issue draws together scholarly research that contributes to our knowledge about the context in which global mobility occurs, the driver and impact of the alternative forms through which global work is experienced, and how the growing fragmentation of global staff can be effectively managed.
  • Global Employees...Global Families (Volume 3, Issue 2) – Guest Editors: Professor Margaret Shaffer and Dr Mina Westman. The purpose of this Special Issue on global employee families is to expand the conceptual and methodological boundaries of research in this area to enhance our understanding of the family experiences of the growing diverse portfolio of global employees.
  • Expatriates in Context: Expanding Perspectives on the Expatriate Situation (Volume 4, Issue 4) – Guest Editors: Professor Fabian Jintae Froese and Dr Soo Min Toh. The papers in this special issue are diverse in terms of topics, theories, and methodologies. The topics cover expatriate success, social support, social networks, HR policies to foster expatriate employability and HCN perspectives. By offering new perspectives on the expatriate situation, the five papers in this special issue inspire new research avenues.
  • Beyond Corporate Expatriation(Volume 5, Issue 2) – Guest Editors: Dr Yvonne McNulty, Professor Charles M. Vance and Dr Kelly Fisher. This Special Issue sought to broaden our collective understanding of expatriation beyond corporate global mobility. Specifically, this special issue aims to: (i) address the gap in research that has not sufficiently explored expatriation in other segments of the global mobility marketplace; and, (ii) to establish the needed momentum for further research in this domain.
