Transnational Corporations Review (TNCR) is a scholarly journal on topics related to transnational corporations (TNCs) from operations to governance. It aims at publishing refereed articles on foreign direct investment, international trade, institutional innovation and developments associated with TNCs. The journal disseminates research outlets on the economic, institutional, social, and environmental impacts of TNCs in the global economy. TNCR encourages submissions on issues related to TNCs from emerging market economies.

TNCR is associated with the Transnational Corporations Council of Studies (TNCCS), a membership-based society that promotes innovative research and best practices related to TNCs. The journal is supported by Zhejiang University’s School of Economics and Ottawa United Learning Academy. It is in collaboration with the scholars and experts from world-class institutions, including Harvard University, Columbia University, and Cornell University.  

Journal features

TNCR differs from the existing akin journals by exploring issues related to TNCs not only from advanced economies and their exposure to emerging markets, but also from emerging markets and their cross-border activities. It is to build a bridge between knowledge creators (scholars) and knowledge seekers (academics, policy makers, and practitioners). The journal welcomes submissions that have policy implications and generate transferable insights for practitioners. Authors from around the world are encouraged to submit research that includes but is not limited to the following:

· Conceptual discussions and research that deepen the understanding of issues related to TNCs, which go beyond merely testing current theories but open up new areas.

· Empirical research using various datasets and rigorous analytical tools to develop insights on issues related to TNCs from advanced economies and emerging market economies.

· Business and economic analyses of transnational activities taking place in multinationals or integrated with diverse socioeconomic, cultural, and institutional settings.

· Assessment of the global contexts where multinational firms from each economic bloc create a presence in an international market economy.
