Call for Papers

Central Asia Business Journal (CABJ)
ISSN 2073-5901 (Online and print on demand)

The Central Asia Business Journal, published by KIMEP University twice each year, is an open access journal that promotes understanding of business issues (broadly defined) in the region. As we see it, the region includes the post-Soviet “stans” (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan) as well as the post-Soviet states of the trans-Caucasus area (including Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia).

Central Asia is a fertile area for research. The region prospers from rich natural resources and high commodity prices as well as from its location at the crossroads of East and West. But its open economy has been vulnerable to such external shocks as the global financial crisis of 2008, and its Soviet legacy complicates its transition to markets.

Authors may submit research papers, case studies, and book reviews as either completed works or as abstracts and proposals. We also invite students’ papers. All submissions must be in English. Refereeing is double-blind.

The journal is open to all methodologies, but it especially welcomes papers with strong ideas and analysis about the real world. We prefer papers with new findings but also publish surveys. All papers should apply their models to Central Asia.

We welcome submission of papers presented at the 2017 conferences of the Bang College of Business and the College of Social Sciences at KIMEP University, as well as of other papers.

The journal’s interests include:

  • International accounting standards and taxation
  • Corporate governance
  • Financial and capital markets and industries
  • Market structure and efficiency
  • Human resources management
  • Leadership
  • International business and globalization
  • Business law
  • Marketing strategies and effectiveness
  • Tourism and the hospitality business
  • Logistics and supply chain management
  • Management information systems
  • Business cycles and economic development
  • Market integration and segmentation
  • Emerging markets
  • Institutional economics
  • Microfinance and development
  • Multinational enterprises and business strategy
  • Natural resources and their internationalization
  • Nongovernmental organizations and entrepreneurs
  • Mathematical economics
  • Statistical economics
  • Risk and uncertainty
  • Political economy
  • Behavioral economics

We also welcome contributions to three sections of the journal:

Perspectives. This section features nontechnical surveys of issues in Central Asian business that would interest scholars or policymakers. An example is a survey of theoretical and empirical papers about customs unions. A typical length is 4,000 to 6,000 words. Please propose your topic to the managing editor before beginning work.

Book reviews. Reviews should summarize and evaluate books about Central Asian business or about business issues of interest to the region. Most reviews will concern recent books, but the journal may also publish a retrospective essay about well-known titles. Reviews might average 1,500 to 2,500 words. Please write the managing editor about the book that you would like to review.

Symposium. This section consists of commentaries on a regional issue – for example, the August 2015 float of the tenge. A typical commentary may run 1,500 to 2,500 words. Usually, the journal commissions commentaries, but you may propose a symposium to the managing editor.

Deadline for completed work for the Spring 2018 issue: January 1, 2018. After then, we will consider submissions for later issues. We try to give the author a decision in six weeks.

The Journal does not charge a fee for submission, processing or publication. The author retains the copyright and publishing rights.
The Journal’s website is https://kimep.kz/bang-college-of-business/central-asia-business-journal/.

For further information and submissions, please write to the Journal at cabj@kimep.kz or to the managing editor, Leon Taylor, at ltaylor@kimep.kz.
