Journal overview 

The International Journal of Emerging Markets (IJoEM) brings together articles that examine the emerging markets, both theoretically and empirically.  Highly rigorous research, case studies, and review articles, such as meta-analytic reviews, are also encouraged.  We especially welcome comparative studies of emerging markets or studies comparing the emerging markets with the developed markets, and seek theories explaining the contextual differences. 

Focused on international business in emerging markets, IJoEM offers contributors and readers an opportunity to explore issues related to the emerging markets from multi-functional (management, marketing, finance, and accounting), multi-disciplinary (comparative and international political economy, entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, operations management, and strategy), and multi-national geographic perspectives (Asia, Middle East, Latin America, etc).

We encourage submissions relating to corporate social responsibility and sustainability, emerging markets multinationals, political risk analysis, bottom of the pyramid, foreign direct investment as well as the examination of existing theories, theoretical extensions and new theories of emerging markets. East-West and North-South comparative research is especially welcomed.

Constituting over two-thirds of the world’s population and one-fifth of its GDP, the emerging markets are expected to continue to impact the world’s new economic order, ushering in changes in economic thought, management philosophy, global operations, and financial flows.  Given their importance to the global economy, the emerging markets are an important testing ground for existing models and concepts in international business, management, marketing, economics, and finance, pushing the boundaries of existing theories. They are also fertile ground for developing new models and theories with different contextual origins.
