Early this year, Copernicus began a coverage review of the Journal. Of particular importance for our colleagues in business and economics, the Journal was recently listed in Cabell's Directory of Publishing Opportunities in Economics and Finance. Being listed with these established indexes is a major accomplishment for a young, open access journal. Such coverage provides added credibility and recognition among scholars and our colleagues around the world. Additionally, papers have been accessed hundreds of times in our open access format, with numerous listings and references made in major trade publications.
