Aims & Scope

South Asian Journal of Business Studies (SAJBS) provides a much-needed platform for showcasing high-quality academic and practitioner research related to business and management practices, policies and strategies in South Asia.SAJBS heightens awareness and understanding of issues facing South Asian organizations and managers, stimulating interest in South Asian business theory and practice among global and regional scholars and practitioners.

The mission of SAJBS is to advance theoretical and empirical knowledge of business issues facing multinational and local organizations of South Asia and South Asian diaspora. We are committed to providing a unified platform to publish research that links scholarly communities in South Asia with the rest of the world. We are open to all empirical methods including qualitative, quantitative and mixed approaches. To be published in SAJBS, a manuscript must use one or more South Asian countries as the context of its study. We use The World Bank definition of South Asia [available at: www.worldbank.org] which includes Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

SAJBS is multidisciplinary in scope. We accept submissions in any of the business fields—Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing and Technology—and are open to other disciplines that enhance understanding of international business activity, including anthropology, political science, psychology and sociology, etc. However, authors must clearly underline how their study relates to the advancement of international business theory and/or practice. We are especially interested in manuscripts that integrate theories and concepts taken from different fields and disciplines.
