JIM focuses on marketing topics within an international context. In JIM, international marketing is conceptualized within two general domains: (1) international (i.e., when marketing activities occur across national boundaries) or (2) cross-cultural (i.e., when comparisons regarding marketing-related issues are made across national boundaries). Both the editor and the reviewers are less positive to studies that are not deemed as fitting within one of these two general domains (e.g., a study of Chinese consumer perceptions of Chinese brands). If an approach outside the two general domains is undertaken in a study, it is incumbent on the authors to clearly demonstrate the importance of the work to the field of international marketing.

JIM publishes articles about business enterprises engaged in international marketing, such as manufacturers, service firms, intermediaries, trading companies, franchisors, licensors, and facilitators in international business (e.g., freight forwarders). Equal attention is given to small and large company players (e.g., multinational corporations) as well as to all modes of international business entry (e.g., exporting, contractual arrangements, direct investment). Discussion of newer forms of cross-border business activity, such as strategic alliances and global sourcing, is also encouraged. JIM also aims to advance the exploration of issues that include the implications of customer orientation in multinational business, cross-cultural market segmentation, and market research.
