Maritime Business Analysis due to the Coronavirus Outbreak

Call for papers for: Maritime Business Review

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The novel coronavirus has quickly spread from Wuhan, Hubei province in China. It has severely impacted the Asian economy and also influenced the operations and supplies of the global businesses. Maritime transport accounts for 80% of the global trade, which plays an important role in ensuring reliable supply of food, products, fuel and medicine to consumers across the countries. The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) provided its first advice on 31 January 2020. However, the maritime business has already started to suffer from the coronavirus outbreak. It is extremely vital to evaluate the potential far-reaching impacts of the coronavirus and recommend mitigation actions as well as strategies for sustaining maritime business. Maritime Business Review (MABR) here is offering an open-access platform for 2 researchers, scholars, industrial leaders, leading experts, stakeholders to collaborate and discuss possible scientific strategies as well as innovative actions due to the coronavirus outbreak.

MABR is a peer-reviewed journal, which is included in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) and Scopus index. It aims to provide the latest research insights, stateof-the-art theory and management practice to maritime researchers and practitioners on all aspects of maritime business issues. MABR will particularly accept high-quality papers addressing maritime business impact and response to the coronavirus, not limited to the ones listed below. All works related to developments and application of maritime business are welcome. To learn about the publication process and how to submit your manuscript, please visit:
