About the Journal

South Asian Journal of Global Business Research (SAJGBR) is led by Dr. Shaista E. Khilji at The George Washington University, USA. It was published in early 2012, and has since built a strong reputation in the scholarly community, as evidenced by downloaded statistics and total number of submissions. In the first ten months of its operation, SAJGBR has received more than 1,500 downloads from around the world, including countries such as, Malaysia, UK, Pakistan, Australia, India, USA, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Iran, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, China, Germany, Kenya, South Africa, Sweden, Ireland, Egypt, Singapore, Ghana, Brazil, France, Netherlands, Canada, Switzerland and Greece. In 2012, SAJGBR has received 121 submissions from around the world, covering topics such as human resource management practices and market performance, coping with job stress, strategic management, merger and acquisitions in the banking sector, call centers, service quality and customer loyalty, stock markets in SAARC nations, brand preference, innovation in small firms and the relationship between gender discrimination and job satisfaction.

SAJGBR has also built a reputation in providing prompt feedback that is constructive, developmental, and detailed. On average, the Editor-in-Chief desk reviews manuscripts within 9 days; and authors receive blind reviewer feedback within 58 days; well within the 90-day period that many journals now strive to achieve.

SAJGBR’s Mission and Coverage

The mission of SAJGBR 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 SAJGBR, 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:] which includes Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Editorial Criteria

SAJGBR 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.

We aim to publish high quality research articles, policy reviews, book reviews, country/practitioner/personal perspectives, conference reflections and commentaries, which contribute to the scholarly and managerial understanding of contemporary South Asian businesses and diaspora. We encourage authors to study relevance of mainstream theories or practices in their fields of interest, critique and offer fresh insights on South Asian businesses and diaspora, as well contribute to the development of new theories.

The journal is the official journal of the South Asian Academy of Management.
