Focus and Scope

An objective of the Journal Management and Business (MABSI) is to promote the wide dissemination of the results of systematic scholarly inquiries into the broad field of management and business research.

The MABIS is intended to be the journal for publishing articles reporting the results of research on business and management. The MABIS invites manuscripts in the areas of finance, international business, management strategy, marketing, economics, risk, accounting, and insurance. The MABIS accepts articles in any business related subjects and any research methodology that meet the standards established for publication in the journal. The primary, but not exclusive, audiences are academicians, graduate students, practitioners, and others interested in business research.

The primary criterion for publication in MABIS is the significance of the contribution an article makes to the literature in management and business area, i.e., the significance of the contribution and on the rigor of analysis and presentation of the paper. The acceptance decision is made based upon an independent review process that provides critically constructive and prompt evaluations of submitted manuscripts

Peer Review Process

The journal uses double-blind peer review (neither the authors nor the reviewers know the identity of each other) to avoid bias.


Manuscripts should be submitted as two separate files in Word format (see in Template of a manuscript).


After submission all articles are evaluated by the editorial office and may be immediately rejected if they are out of the journal's scope or otherwise unfit for consideration. Articles which passed initial evaluation will be sent out for external review. Reviewer reports with a decision from the editor will be returned to the authors as soon as possible, but please be patient as reviewing can take up to 60 days.


After review, the editor will make a decision of: reject, accept, or revise. Revisions may be major or minor. If a decision of revision is made, authors are asked to make their revisions as quickly as possible – if there are extensive delays in revising an article then it may be considered a new submission. Revised articles may be sent out for review again, depending on the level of revision requested.
