I feel very happy and honored for my recent appointment as Associate Editor of Family Business Review. Family Business Review (FBR) is the leading journal in the field studying family business. With a current impact factor of more than 5.5, FBR is a perfect evidence for the importance of family firm studies, not only for practice but also in the academic world.
Together with my fellow Associate Editors and Editor Pramodita Sharma, I will handle manuscripts that fall into the scope of FBR, which is (according to its website) the
exploration of the dynamics of family-controlled enterprise, including firms ranging in size from the very large to the relatively small. FBR is focused not only the entrepreneurial founding generation, but also on family enterprises in the 2nd and 3rd generation and beyond, including some of the oldest companies in the world. In addition, the journal publishes interdisciplinary research on families of wealth, family foundations and offices.
I am very much looking forward to this job and hope to receive many high quality submissions from scholars of various disciplines and from around the world!
