In order to serve as an interface between different academic disciplines and between academicians and practitioners, B>Quest (Business Quest) published highly readable articles in the various business disciplines and economics whose subject matter is of interest to either or both academicians and practitioners. Particularly welcome are articles of an interdisciplinary nature. There is no print version of B>Quest. Manuscripts were invited from both academic and non-academic sources. Papers previously published or under consideration for publication elsewhere were not acceptabled.
