About Family Business Review
Family Business Review (FBR) is the first scholarly publication in the world devoted exclusively to exploring the dynamics of family-controlled enterprises of all sizes. FBR is focused not only on the entrepreneurial founding generation, but also on family enterprises in the 2nd and 3rd generations and beyond, including some of the world’s oldest companies. In addition, the journal publishes multidisciplinary research on families of wealth and the family office.
A refereed journal published by SAGE, in 2011 FBR was listed as a top 20 journal in the business category based on its Impact Factor (IF) calculated by Thomson Reuters, as well as designated a “Rising Star” in 2012. Last year the IF was 2.600; currently it is 2.622.
