Letter from the Editors

JBE continues to strive to increase the quality and impact of the journal, and many who have followed the journal recently have noted the upward trajectory. More submissions are coming in and it’s already become more competitive to publish in JBE. It is worth noting that our acceptance rate remains the same, 20-25%, despite the increase in submissions. This is not fuzzy math, rather it’s a direct reflection of increased publication frequency to keep up with the increased submission volume. JBE is now publishing 3 full issues per year (which includes an annual special issue). We also hope to hear very soon regarding new listing in journal rankings.

As always you remain our top priority as we continue to grow JBE into a highly respected outlet for scholarly and professional discourse. If we can better serve you in any way please do not hesitate to contact us.
