Central Asia Business Journal

About the journal

The Central Asia Business Journal promotes understanding of
business issues (broadly defined) in the region, which 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). We expect quality articles,
which may be submitted by anyone.

The Central Asia Business Journal began publishing in 2000, when
it was titled

Central Asian Journal of Management, Economics and Social Research.

Its title changed to the Central Asia Business Journal in 2006.
The journal appears quarterly, in both paper (on demand) and electronic
formats. The publisher is KIMEP University, 4 Abay Prospekt, Almaty,
Kazakhstan 050010.

The CABJ is an open access journal. All articles are free to
users, who can use, reuse or build upon material, provided that they

with the Directory of Open Access Journals, we state that users may “read,

All submissions are peer-reviewed, usually under a double-blind system.

The journal rejects plagiarized submissions. “Plagiarism” means that the
submission has copied word-for-word a sentence or more of text without
quotation marks. The author should also attribute fully material drawn from

Call for Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Central Asia Business Journal promotes understanding of issues in the region including 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). The ISSN number for this open-access journal is 1991-0002. The journal is also registered with Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Information and Social Development.
We welcome all topics bearing upon Central Asian business (broadly defined). We especially welcome papers that are conceptually and analytically strong and that relate to the real world. We will consider a wide range of methodologies.
This is a good opportunity for you and your students to satisfy publication requirements in your department. For nearly two decades, the Journal has published research about Central Asia by professors and students. The Journal is widely read: It has more than 72 citations according to Scholar Google (which is a comprehensive index) and more than 31 citations according to a Scopus index.
You may submit research papers, case studies, and book reviews. All submissions must be in English, since this is an international journal. All submissions are peer-reviewed on a double-blind basis. Check out the latest issue, at the Journal’s website, https://kimep.kz/bang-college-of-business/central-asia-business-journal/. You can email submissions to the managing editor, Leon Taylor, at ltaylor@kimep.kz .
The deadline for submitting papers to the Summer 2021 issue is April 10. Papers submitted later will be considered for later issues. At least one research paper submitted between January 31 and April 10 may qualify for a $500 honorarium if published in the Summer issue.
The Journal’s website provides guidelines for authors. We try to give the author a decision on her submission in six weeks.
We also welcome contributions to three sections of the journal:
Perspectives. This features nontechnical surveys of issues that would interest scholars and policymakers. An example is an overview of theoretical and empirical papers about customs unions. A typical length is 4,000 to 6,000 words.
Book reviews. Reviews should summarize and evaluate books about Central Asian business or about business issues that interest the region. Most reviews will concern recent books, but the journal may also publish a retrospective essay about well-known titles in a given field. A typical length for a review is 1,500 to 2,500 words.
Symposium. This consists of several commentaries on a recent issue of interest—for example, the August 2015 float of the tenge. A typical commentary may run 1,500 to 2,500 words.
The Journal is published quarterly by KIMEP University, 4 Abai Prospekt, Almaty, Kazakhstan 050010. Please send any questions about submissions to Taylor at ltaylor@kimep.kz .
