    Aims and Scope


    Asian Business & Management (ABM) is an academic general management and business journal, that is, we are in principle open to all disciplines and fields of research on management and business-subject to the condition that submissions must be related to Asia.

    We especially encourage papers that draw on one of the various streams of the business systems literature, broadly conceived, to generate new insights into the societal embeddedness of firms in Asia and the consequences of such embeddedness on managerial and business processes, structures, and outcomes. 

    Please refer to the 2012 Editorial for further details: http://dx.doi.org/10.1057/abm.2011.23

    A rigorous double-blind peer review system, involving in-country and international refereeing, ensures that articles meet the highest standards of quality.
