BPSD Editor Debbie Haski-Leventhal, Macquarie Graduate School of Management, speaking at the recent UN Global Compact Business for Peace event in New York.
Greenleaf Publishing journal Business, Peace and Sustainable Development (BPSD) has been selected to appear in a new edition of Thomson Reuters Web of Science research platform, which launches in November this year.
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) will extend coverage of content featured in the Web of Science database to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. Fully searchable and citable, inclusion in the ESCI will increase the visibility and reach of articles published in the journal.
We are delighted to announce the publication of the inaugural issue of Business, Peace and Sustainable Development, which is now available online and as part of the Sustainable Organization Library (SOL)
BPSD is published in association with the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
“Academically, tying business and peace is a relatively new idea. With only a handful of books, a few articles and a couple of special issues on business and peace… we now need an on-going platform for publications on the subject. The new journal Business, Peace and Sustainable Development will address this need. It was announced on the International Day of Peace with the hope it will not only help develop this academic field, but have genuine social impact on the global community.
“I have a perfect job, as I get to do things that I not only love but also believe in” – Debbie Haski-Leventhal

Business, Peace and Sustainable Development (BPSD) aims at understanding the role of the business sector in enhancing peace and reducing violence, and contributing to sustainable development. On the other hand, it is also aimed at understanding the importance of peace to the economy and markets. While some research has been published on business and peace and peace through commerce, BPSD is the first journal dedicated to mutual contribution of business and peace.
