The Journal of Business in Developing Nations is a combined effort of dedicated scholars throughout the world, including an Editorial Review Board whose members are based on six continents.  It was founded at the North Carolina Central University School of Business by Dr. John A. Parnell, who was its Editor for volumes 1 and 2 (1997 and 1998).  It moved with him to Texas A&M University-Commerce College of Business & Technology.  (He has since moved to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.) For volume 3 (1999), the Editor was Dr. David H. Kent and the host was Golden Gate University School of Business.

Begining in the fall of 2000,  the JBDN's host is the Lally School of Management and Technology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Hartford, and the Editor-in-Chief is Dr. Peter W. Schroth. Beginning in 2007, we also have an Associate Editor, Dr. John E. Spillan, who was then at Pennsylvania State University - DuBois, but moved in 2008 to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

The Journal of Business in Developing Nations is listed in Cabell's Directory of Publishing Opportunities in Economics and Finance.
