For the past 31 years, 'Business Information Review' has sought to address the needs of the business and commercial information sector. Over that time, the journal has carved out a unique place in the information world, balancing professional and scholarly publishing with a highly accessible style. Although it has been through many changes, the ethos of the journal has remained the same. It provides a forum for evidence-based practice by publishing the best professional and scholarly articles geared towards a professional readership. The regular readers and contributors of the journal are overwhelmingly drawn from commercial information practice and business education. That readership has grown to include knowledge managers, business researchers and other specialized roles alongside the older special libraries sector. The journal has therefore exemplified the idea of traditional professional skills finding value in emerging commercial contexts and embodies the ethos that professional practice must be sustained by a robust base of scholarly and professional research. It is this commitment to the foundations of the profession – shared by this journal – that has often underpinned the important contributions of librarians, knowledge managers, information scientists and business researchers to commercial enterprise across the world.
