Aims and scope

Journal of Advanced Research in Economics and International Business(J. of Adv. Res. Econ. Int. Bus.) is an annually double blind peer-reviewed journal of ASERS Publishing.

The journal provides a forum for academics and professionals to share the latest developments and advances in knowledge and practice of Economics and International Business by publishing cutting edge papers in these areas. It aims to foster the exchange of ideas on a range of important international subjects, to provide stimulus for research and the further development of international perspectives, and to publish empirical and applied research on issues relating to Economics and International Business. The international perspective is further enhanced by the geographical spread of the contributors.

The journal focuses on theoretical, applied, interdisciplinary, history of thought and methodological work, with strong emphasis on realistic analysis, the development of critical perspectives, the provision and use of empirical evidence, and the construction of policy.

The goal of JAREIB is to constitute a qualified and continual platform for sharing studies of academicians, researchers and practitioners.

Country-level replication studies of key themes in Economics and International Business are also welcome. In order to qualify as a replication study, the submitted paper must clearly state what is being replicated, why it is important to replicate it, why the particular replication is of interest to international business and economic scholars, and how the replication analysis contributes to the process of validating, negating, clarifying, or refining existing theory and/or evidence.

Theoretical work submitted to the Journal should be original in its motivation or modeling structure. Empirical analysis should be based on a theoretical framework, and should be capable of replication. It is expected that all materials required for replication (including computer programs and data sets) should be available upon request to the authors.
