Call for Papers


Dear Prof./Sir/Madam/Miss

The Editorial Board of Malaysian Management Journal would like to invite you to submit a paper to be considered for publication in the journal.

Malaysian Management Journal (MMJ) is a refereed journal published annually (July) by the UUM Press, Universiti Utara Malaysia. In ensuring that the articles published meet acceptable quality standards, the manuscripts undergo a double-blind review process.

MMJ is indexed by the Malaysian Citation Index (MyCite), Asean Citation Index, Google Scholar and Asian Digital Library.

Aims and Scope

The main objective of the journal is to provide a channel for the publication of articles based on empirical research, original thoughts, comparative studies and commentaries in business management covering the areas of process, policy, strategy, theory, and behaviour with a focus on Malaysia, the Asian region and other emerging economies. The emerging economies contribute significantly to economic growth; this, coupled with their diverse and unique culture, offers a wealth of experience and knowledge that can be learned and shared. Thus, the MMJ provides a platform for the exchange of ideas, and sharing of thoughts, experience and knowledge, where business management, particularly in the emerging economies, is concerned. 

This journal will benefit not only academicians and graduate students in management programs, but also policy-makers, as well as managers and practitioners in areas related to business management.

MMJ welcomes papers on the following disciplines (but not limited to):

Business Management
  • Business Regulation
  • Business Disruption
  • Business Strategy
  • Global Business
  • Crisis Management

Business Economics
