Business Information Review is the only journal devoted entirely to the practice of business information provision. Its content is especially tailored to the needs of business information professionals - whether information managers, librarians, knowledge managers, researchers, analysts, consultants, print or electronic publishers. Its readers are to be found in the corporate sector, in government agencies and other public institutions, in private consultancy, and in universities and business schools.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Business Information Review is available on SAGE Journals Online.

Business Information Review is concerned with information provision and management within organizations.

To be successful organizations need to gain maximum value from exploiting relevant information and knowledge. BIR deals with information strategies and operational good practice across the range of activities required to deliver this information dividend. BIR also aims to highlight developments in the economic, social and technological landscapes that will impact the way organizations operate and which will affect their information needs.

BIR content is written by information professionals, content, technology and service suppliers, academics and researchers and leading thinkers from within and outside the information world.

BIR also provides insights into the factors that contribute to individual professional success.

Whilst many business information professionals and librarians are still involved with published information - its supply to the desktop, skills for users, research and analysis services - the range of professional activities has expanded. Responsibilities can range from knowledge management through information risk and security, and much more engagement with IT including the development and use of social media. BIR provides valuable insights across the full range of organizational information activities whilst retaining a keen interest in business information resources.

BIR's international readership and authorship covers the corporate sector, consultancies and law firms, publishers and information providers, government and other public institutions, academia and the third sector.
