BAR is a fully open-access online journal that is a member and abides by the principles of COPE – Committee on Publication Ethics for scholarly publication. BAR is available in most indexing services, including Scopus and Scielo.

BAR’s mission is to advance scholarly knowledge on management and organizational theories so as to assist business and public administration worldwide by means of the global dissemination of conceptual and empirical studies developed in Brazil and other countries.

The journal publishes conceptual and empirical studies within the broad interests of business and public administration. Theoretical and methodological perspectives are welcome as long as they are insightful also for practice. BAR documents should not focus on a particular country/region and must convey theoretical, methodological, and applied advancements to the frontiers of scholarly knowledge on a global scale.

BAR's target audience is the global scholarly community in all interests of business and public administration.
