Journal History

The Review of Business Management (RBGN) has been publishing uninterruptedly for 18 years and is a sequel to the Alvares Penteado Review, which was published from 1998 to 2003. It aims at disseminating and promoting scientific debate in Business Administration and Accounting; its mission is to propagate studies and research that may contribute to scientific progress and to improve management in organizations.

The evaluation process of scientific journals performed by the Qualis/CAPES system and completed in June 2007 reclassified RBGN from “Local B” to “National B”, which resulted in a rise of approximately 46% in the demand and in the quantity of submitted papers, an increase from 68 papers in 2006 to 94 papers in 2007.

During that period, until 2007, RBGN implemented several strategies to meet the expectations of both its readers and authors. One of them was to increase its publication frequency from every four months to every three. Its editorial line aims to propagate research projects that are conducted largely by Graduate Programs, thus contributing to the fast dissemination of knowledge.

The implementation of SEER – Electronic Journal Publishing System, recommended by QUALIS/CAPES, has facilitated access to published papers and thus increased the review's visibility and improved the internal paper evaluation processes, providing greater transparency. In addition, from v. 9 in 2007, RBGN began to publish its abstracts in Spanish as well, which were only published in Portuguese and English before that date.

These changes have also allowed developing a strategy that would include the review in indexes that could further increase the visibility of the published papers. RBGN applied for several evaluation processes and gradually succeeded to be approved by most of them. During that period, it registered at DOAJ – Directory of Open Access Journals; at ICAP – Shared Indexing of Articles of the Journals of the National Network of Pergamum Libraries; at CLASE – Latin American Citations in Social Sciences and Humanities; at Latindex – Regional Online Information System for Cientific Journals from Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain, and Portugal; at Dialnet Fundation; at Ulrich's Periodicals Directory; and at ROAD – Directory of Open Access Scholarly Resources.

After 2008, the review was indexed at EBSCO Publishing, at REDALYC – Network of Scientific Journals from Latin America and the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal, at Thomson Reuters, and at the ISI Web of Science database. Shortly after that, in 2009, it was indexed at GALE – Cengage; in 2010 at SCOPUS and at HAPI – Hispanic American Periodicals Index directory; and in 2011 at ProQuest and at the Brazilian Abstracts of Scientific Journals (Sumários.org).

In 2011, RBGN adopted the editorial governance principles to formalize the positions of the General Editor, the Assistant Editors, the Editorial Policy Committee, the Editorial Board, and the Reviewers. That initiative allowed RBGN to meet the requirements of the “Good Scientific Publishing Practices” edited by ANPAD – Brazilian Association of Graduate Programs in Business Administration, and also to publicly disclose its code of ethics that guides the editorial process. In this period, RBGN was also indexed at Electronic Journals Library EZ3, at WorldWideScience.org, and at Cabbell's Directory of Publishing Opportunities in Management.

In 2012, RBGN was indexed at JCR Journal of Scientific Reports, the most prestigious international index; it became thus the first Brazilian journal in the field of business administration to accomplish that feat, together with RAE – Business Administration Journal, published by the Getúlio Vargas Foundation. In 2012, RBGN was indexed at SPELL – Scientific Periodicals Electronic Library, a system implemented by ANPAD and it was ranked B1 by the QUALIS/CAPES system.

In 2013, with the support of CNPq, RBGN made several important advances, all of which were in line with the goals of the project submitted to the CNPq. Those include: publication of papers in bilingual form, either in English/Portuguese or in English/Spanish; paper publication capacity increased by 33.3%, i.e., from 24 papers in 2012 to 32 papers in 2013; and marking of papers by the DOI system – Digital Object Identifier. Still in 2013, RBGN was indexed at REDIB – Iberoamerican Network for Innovation and Scientific Knowledge.

In 2015, CAPES updated the Qualis system and RBGN was ranked at A2 level, the highest score ever reached by a Brazilian journal in the areas of Administration, Accounting, and Tourism. Early in 2016, the revue was indexed at OASISBR and Google Scholar, and at the DIADORIM directory.

All those actions aimed at promoting RBGN's quality and visibility as a tool for the dissemination of scientific knowledge shows in how much researchers have become interested in publishing with us. Currently, RBGN receives an average of 80 submissions per month, many of which are sent by researchers who are affiliated with foreign institutions.
