When books were handwritten, it took a very long time for one to be completed, and they were so expensive that few could afford them. Then came the printing press. Today the World Wide Web is revolutionizing publishing in the same way the invention of the printing press did.
The Richards College of Business, the University of West Georgia began publishing B>Quest (Business Quest) in 1996. A journal of applied topics in business and economics, its objective is to serve as an interface between different academic disciplines and between academicians and practitioners. It makes available, at no charge, throughout the world highly readable articles in the various business disciplines and economics whose subject matter is of interest to either or both academicians and practitioners. This policy was adopted in response to the fact that today a great many of the articles appearing in academic journals in business and economics are not accessible to practitioners or even to professors in closely related disciplines. B>Quest publishes articles authored by academicians and practitioners. Academicians can request that their manuscripts be blind, peer reviewed.
