The IJBED, a scholarly and refereed journal, provides an authoritative source of information for scholars, academicians, and professionals in the fields of business and economic development and is publicised four times a year. The journal promotes the advancement, understanding, and practice of business & economic development. It is peer reviewed and is the main research platform of The Academy of Business & Retail Management (ABRM). Scholars across borders are encouraged in advancing the frontiers of management education, particularly in the area of economic development.

The Editors and Editorial Board of the IJBED are committed to championing original academic papers that demonstrate academic rigor and integrity. Such a journal has a small but significant role in helping to enrich our understanding of a raft of issue of a macro and micro economic nature, and specialises in business and economic development.
