Focus and aim

The DBS Applied Research and Theory Journal is an open access, annual academic journal published by Dublin Business School. The journal is a cross institutional, international endeavour which features peer reviewed articles from a range of academic contributors including students alongside faculty, submitted from across the sector.

A key goal of the journal is to facilitate high quality applied research across a range of contexts with priority given to research that is directed towards a practical application or implication.

It is intended that by welcoming submissions from across a range of disciplines the journal will bridge the gap between theory and practice. We encourage people working in the field of applied research wishing to communicate recent developments in their field to contribute to the journal. We welcome submissions with an interdisciplinary focus, from academic papers, to original research, to reflections and more.
