Business Horizons and SSCI


Thomson Reuters will now include Business Horizons in the Social Sciences Citation Index and their Current Contents/Social & Behavioral Sciences Index

Business Horizons, the journal of the Kelley School of Business, and Elsevier are pleased to announce that the journal has been approved by Thomson Reuters for inclusion in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) and their Current Contents/Social & Behavioral Sciences Index (CC/S&BS).

Coverage will be from 2008 forward, giving the journal near immediate inclusion and exposure. This important development is a testament to the quality of the journal’s content, its staff and Editorial Review Board.


The editorial aim of Business Horizons is to publish original articles of interest to business academicians and practitioners. Articles cover a wide range of topical areas within the general field of business, with emphasis on identifying important business issues or problems and recommending solutions that address these. Ideally, articles will prompt readers to think about business practice in new and innovative ways. Business Horizons fills a unique niche among business publications of its type by publishing articles that strike a balance between the practical and the academic. To this end, articles published in Business Horizons are grounded in scholarship, yet are presented in a readable, non-technical format such that the content is accessible to a wide business audience.


Manuscripts should be prepared in conformance with the Style Guide for Authors ( All submissions should be sent electronically to the editor at Submission of a manuscript to Business Horizons implies a commitment by the author(s) to engage in the review process and to have the article published should it be accepted. Articles previously published, those under consideration by another journal, and those with a pre-existing copyright may not be submitted. Upon submission, authors also agree not to submit the manuscript for consideration elsewhere during the review period. Editorial decisions on all submissions are final.
