Aims & ScopeLogo: Leir Research Institute.

South Asian Journal of Business Studies is an international, multidisciplinary journal with a focus on South Asia and its role in the global context.

Through our published articles, we aim to address issues facing South Asian business and management, recognize its unique position in the global economy and contribute towards the development of inclusive, sustainable business in South Asia.

The journal provides a much needed platform showcasing practice, policy and strategy in South Asian business and management and the region's impact on the global business ecosystem.  We seek to publish articles from any field so long as they demonstrate how they advance international business theory and/or practice. In particular, we welcome research that integrates theories and concepts from different disciplines and/or has implications for practitioners and policymakers. We encourage authors to discuss the potential for societal impact in their research. 

Subject areas include, but are not limited to:

  • The role of Western MNCs in South Asia
  • Cross-cultural partnerships 
  • Business continuity and resilience
  • Grass Roots Entrepreneurship and the Role of SME’s 
  • The role of culture, religion, and governance in shaping South Asian business practices
  • Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility
  • The Role of Gender Equality and Diversity in Business and management
  • Foreign Direct Investment and Trade Issues in South Asia
  • Emerging Role of South Asian MNCs in the Global Arena
  • Sales and Marketing Issues that are unique to South Asia  
  • Emerging Leadership Models
