Submission Guidelines

If you are interested in contributing to the exploration and advancement of global business, we are interested in hearing from you. The RGBR seeks articles from contributors who are recognized experts in their field or who have requisite experience and credentials to be qualified to speak authoritatively on a subject matter. RGBR invites articles addressing the following content areas:

  • Strategy and Planning
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Business Globalization and Social Responsibility
  • Human Resource Development and People Management
  • Organization and Change Management
  • Values-based Management/Faith and Workplace Integration
  • Finance, Accounting and Financial Management
  • Technology and Operations Management
  • Marketing and Sales Management
  • Not for Profit and Public Sector Management
  • Leadership and Executive Development
  • Business Environment and Public Policy

When developing your submission, please consider the following, which will increase your potential for acceptance and publication:

  1. Focus the article in the content areas described previously.
  2. If your article is technically focused in content, include perspectives on the Biblical implications of the content (e.g., an article that focuses on people management strategies of a corporate merger could focus on the technical subject matter within the content of the article; however, the article would need to include Biblical or values-based perspectives about the implications of people management during a time of change). 
  3. Provide application of leading and emerging management thinking from recognized experts and/or Biblical perspectives from rigorous exegesis.
  4. Seek to equip or inform the reader with a practical article written in a popular press style for a broad and experienced audience using active voice, succinct and compelling language.
  5. Identify any relevant sources of research that support your article.
  6. Distinguish or recommend industries, organization types or global regions where the article may have greater application.
  7. Seek to answer the "so what" question by ensuring the article:
    • Presents new ideas or new perspectives on existing approaches.
    • Persuades and convinces the reader.
    • Incorporates real-life illustrations from business practice or consulting experience.
    • Uses new and proven concepts to challenge traditional methods or to support new models and approaches based on traditional perspectives.
