JCEFTS is recruiting new reviewers to carry out double-blind peer review for the Journal

The Journal of Chinese Economic and Foreign Trade Studies (JCEFTS) publishes
high-quality research on economic, business, and foreign trade issues relating to China, South and South-East Asian countries.

Edited by Dr. Rania Miniesy, esteemed academic and acting Head of Economics at The British University in Egypt, this influential journal is listed in several indices, holds a 2.9 CiteScore on Scopus for 2020, and offers value to students, researchers and policy makers around
the globe.

JCEFTS welcomes research papers based on theoretical insights, empirical testing of ‘accepted’ theory, literature reviews, case studies and papers which present conceptually new and thoughtful arguments, whether theory or policy focused. In 2020 it launched a new and exciting initiative for practitioner-focused research by welcoming shorter,
3,000-word articles, case studies and viewpoint pieces on current economic issues and challenges relevant to China and its surrounding regions.

All submitted papers are double-blind peer-reviewed to ensure academic rigour and integrity, while practitioner content also benefits from a rapid 8-week submission, review and publication timeline.
