Manuscript Selection

Authors are notified of decisions by e-mail only. Repeated submissions of the same manuscript will not be acknowledged. Membership of the JBT or affiliate organisations is not a factor in selection of manuscripts for publication. JBT treats all submitted manuscripts as confidential documents. Papers cannot be resubmitted over a disagreement on novelty, interest, or relative merit. If a paper was rejected on the basis of serious reviewer error, resubmission may be considered. Decisions made by the Board of Editors are final.


This journal has a zero-tolerance to plagiarism and unethical behaviour with respect to publishing. Authors must ensure their paper is of the highest standard and that attributions and citations are accurate and the paper is original in its entirety. All papers are systemically reviewed on submission and any detections mean an immediate rejection.

Third-Party Editorial Services

The JBT understands that authors may use (pay for) academic journal editorial services to maximise the potentials of their papers for acceptance through peer review. This journal works with such third parties to enable authors, specifically those from non-English speaking backgrounds, to present papers of a high standard ready for peer review. Such fees payable are not associated with this journal. Please be advised that using and paying for such third parties does not guarantee publication in this journal. This journal has a strict peer-review process. The journal has become very popular over recent years, due to its relevance and leadership in the fields of innovation, creativity and change. This places significant pressure on our peer reviewer list. This journal, therefore, welcomes authors to nominate suitably qualified peer reviewers for their papers. Should an issue of quality occur please contact the editor via
