Welcome to the Spring 2014 Edition

From the Publisher:

Welcome to the Spring 2014 online issue of The Coastal Business Journal. The Coastal Business Journal focuses on issues pertaining to business administration and business development within coastal geographic regions, but also publishes papers related to a wider variety of pertinent and timely business issues. We are a Cabell’s, EbscoHost, Proquest and Google Scholar listed multi-disciplinary, double-blind peer reviewed outlet for scholarly papers. In this issue you will find articles that are of interest to both academicians and practitioners.   

I would like to extend my thanks to the editor, Dr. Nicholas Twigg, and the members of the editorial review board. Our editorial review board consists of a broad range of academicians and practitioners that are experts in their field.  They are committed to providing timely and detailed reviews for every submission. If you are interested in submitting an article for consideration in the next edition of the journal, please see our author guidelines. 

As our number of submissions and the interest in our journal grows, we are also interested in recruiting new members to the editorial board. If you are interested in being considered for editorial board membership, please contact Dr. Twigg.

Thank you for your interest in The Coastal Business Journal.  I hope you enjoy the Spring 2014 issue.
