This article looks at the past and the future of the Journal of World Business (JWB). JWB continues to publish manuscripts that draw upon the research agendas and global professional experiences of authors from human resources management, marketing, and multinational business strategy. The JWB editors and editorial review boards have worked hard to bring its readers an excellent combination of articles in these three fields. These articles are expected to raise a myriad of issues facing both the researcher and professional practitioner. As the new millennium enters, there will be some administrative changes at the journal that will hopefully bring JWB on a more timely basis four times a year. Patrick Bright, the journal's production manager, aims to publish an author's creative contribution within six months of acceptance by an editor. Executive Editor Sammye Haigh has promised to continue her emotional and editorial support. Meanwhile, the editors will work diligently to have manuscripts reviewed within sixty days; they are requesting that when authors are asked for revision, authors will return their revised manuscript within 90 days. All of these changes are anticipation of the coming millennium.
