Transnational Corporations Review
Current location:
Transnational Corporations Review (TNCR) is collaborated with Taylor & Francis for publishing at

Transnational Corporations Review (TNCR) aims to disseminate and promote original research and new thinking on the operations, governance, and economic, social and environmental impacts of transnational corporations in the global economy. It publishes high-quality, refereed articles on foreign direct investment, international trade, institutional, technology and innovation and development issues associated with transnational corporations. The journal encourages submissions that consider the experience of transnational corporations in and from emerging market economies. TNCR works in close collaborations with experts from the world-class academic institutions including Columbia University and Cornell University, and is affiliated with the School of Economics at Zhejiang University.

TNCR positions itself to be a liaison between knowledge creators (scholars) and knowledge seekers in the areas of international economics and international business. It distinguishes itself from other journals in these fields:

  • Instead of focusing only on emerging or developed countries, TNCR focuses on the interactions of firms from both the developed and emerging countries.
  • Instead of studying only general issues of the Globalization, TNCR puts emphasize both on macro issues on international economics and international business environment as well as on micro issues of firm level management, governance and managerial practices in cross-cultural settings both in the developed and emerging countries.
  • Instead of prioritizing the quantitative methodology, TNCR welcomes research articles using both quantitative and qualitative as well as mix-methods. On the top of the openness towards methodological varieties, TNCR puts emphasis on both methodological rigor and pertinence of the content of the articles.
  • Instead of publishing only the empirical research papers that test existing theories or confirm prior findings, TNCR encourages the futuristic conceptual papers as “research note” from senior academic or professional experts.
  • Instead of publishing the papers that are specific to a particular short-lived period, TNCR presents ideas that will remain relevant in the long-run.

In summary, TNCR welcomes articles that contain observations and present an overall picture of the investigated issues. In line with the goal of knowledge transfer, we also welcome papers that generate relevant and transferable insights and implications for policy makers and industry practitioners.
