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

All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff. Those manuscripts evaluated by editors to be inappropriate to journal criteria are rejected promptly without external review. Manuscripts evaluated to be of potential interest to our readership are sent to double blind reviewers. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer’s recommendation from among several possibilities: rejected, require major revision, need minor revision, or accepted. The Editor-in-Chief of MABIS has the right to decide which manuscripts submitted to the journal should be published.

Review Process:

1. Author submit the manuscript

2. Editor Evaluation [some manuscripts are rejected or returned before the review process]

3. Double-blind peer review process

4. Editor Decision
