Aim and Scope
OUM INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT aims to present the latest thinking and research that test, extends, or builds management theory and contributes to business practice.
Contents of the Journal will be of interest to management and business teachers, student and researchers as well as to practicing managers and material will be analytical rather than descriptive.
Whilst a major focus of the Journal is on the business and management connected with it, increasingly, global concerns and conceptual topics will be covered. The Journal does not take a narrow view of business and management and will publish in other disciplines if they contribute significantly to problems considered by managers and researchers.
To be published in OUM INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT, a manuscript must make strong empirical and theatrical contributions and highlight the significance of those contributions to the business and management field. Thus, preference is given to submissions that test, extend, or build strong theoretical frameworks while empirically examining issues with high importance for business and management theory and practice.
Manuscripts must be double-spaced on 8 1/2 x 11”. Manuscript length should be reasonable for the contribution offered. Soft copy of the article should be sent to:
