Деловой журнал Центральной Азии

About the journal

Aims and Scope: 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).

Readers include scholars, students, and business executives with an interest in Central Asia.  Financed by KIMEP University, the Journal is free to all readers.

The ISSN is 2073-5901 for the print version and 1991-0002 for the electronic version as well as for print on demand.  The Journal is primarily an electronic publication.

Evaluation of articles.  We expect quality articles, which may be submitted by anyone.  We do not consider more than two submissions at a time from one author, and we do not consider submissions that have been published elsewhere. The Journal does not charge submission fees.

All submissions are evaluated by an expert who is not on the Journal’s editorial staff, under a double-blind system: That is, the reviewer does not know who the submitter is, and the submitter does not know who the reviewer is.

Research misconduct.  The journal rejects plagiarized submissions. “Plagiarism” means that the submission has copied word-for-word a sentence or more of text without quotation marks; or has made trivial changes in the wording of longer passages copied from elsewhere without attribution.  In general, the author should attribute fully material drawn from elsewhere, with a citation in the main text and a reference in the references section.

In addition to plagiarism, “research misconduct” may include falsification of data and refusal to justify statistical estimates, as well as other violations of ethics.  Empirical researchers should provide access for readers to their databases or, if the data are widely available, tell readers where they can find them.  The journal will investigate any allegation of research misconduct concerning one of its published articles.

Conflicts of interest.  In submitting an article, the author should identify any potential conflict of interest, such as an article that favorably treats a funder of the research.  The author should also list, in her submission package, the amount and source of a fund that financed the research.

Complaints and appeals.  These will be assigned to an appropriate member of the editorial board. CABJ authors will have an opportunity to respond to complaints about their research.

Post-publication discussions and corrections.  In their journal articles, authors must provide a permanent email-address at which readers can reach them.  The journal corrects issues and re-posts the issues to the journal’s Web page. The revised issue notifies readers about the corrections.

Ethical oversight.  The editorial board of the journal oversees ethics.

Advertisements.  The Journal welcomes ads that relate to Central Asian business and that do not compromise the Journal’s objectivity in research.

Issues concerning copyrights and intellectual property.  The CABJ is an open access journal. All articles are free to users, who can use, reuse or build upon material, provided that they attribute it appropriately. The author holds the copyright. In accordance with the Directory of Open Access Journals, we state that users may “read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles…without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.”

History.  The Central Asia Business Journal began publishing in 2000, when it was titled the 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 Abai Prospekt, Almaty, Kazakhstan 050010.

Archive.  Journal articles and issues are being archived at Portico (portico.org).

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 .
