Challenging the orthodox: a decade of critical perspectives on international business
Challenging the orthodox: a decade of critical perspectives on international business
Purpose – This article reflects on the development and impact of critical perspectives on international business (CPoIB) during its first decade of existence. The influence that the journal has had through its efforts to challenge orthodox understandings of international business (IB) is considered. The evolution of CPoIB is set against the changing global environment. The contributions to this 10th anniversary issue are outlined.

Design/methodology/approach – The journal's contents are reviewed and their impact assessed through an analysis of download and citation data. The position of the journal in various journal quality rankings is also examined. The contents of mainstream IB journals are compared to those of CPoIB.

Findings – During its short life, CPoIB has had an important impact on the field of IB both directly through the consideration of issues from a critical perspective in the pages of the journal and through its influence on the field of IB and critical management studies.

Research limitations/implications – The conclusions of the research are based on nine years of citation and download data as well as journal quality lists.

Practical implications – The findings of this paper provide valuable information for authors seeking a quality and impactful outlet for their research in the field of critical perspectives on IB and related disciplines. Academic and political activists in the field of IB will find theoretical backgrounds supporting their political campaigns.

Originality/value – This is the only paper to undertake an assessment of the first decade of CPoIB's development, content, and impact.

Design/methodology/approach – The journal's contents are reviewed and their impact assessed through an analysis of download and citation data. The position of the journal in various journal quality rankings is also examined. The contents of mainstream IB journals are compared to those of CPoIB.

Findings – During its short life, CPoIB has had an important impact on the field of IB both directly through the consideration of issues from a critical perspective in the pages of the journal and through its influence on the field of IB and critical management studies.

Research limitations/implications – The conclusions of the research are based on nine years of citation and download data as well as journal quality lists.
