More on this journal...

The main objective of the peer-reviewed MEJM is to encourage the application of research methods to solve specific business-related problems in the Middle East. MEJM is the only journal that actively encourages dialogue between Middle East management researchers and supports research from the region. The journal seeks to highlight the best practice and research of developed and rapidly growing countries in the Middle East region. It contributes to the development of solutions for contemporary management challenges.


MEJM is a forum to help professionals, chief executive officers and corporate heads of firms, managing directors, senior general managers, boards of directors, academics and researchers in business, information directors, quality managers and human resource directors. It will enable academics and practitioners working in the field of business excellence to discuss important ideas and concepts and disseminate information for mutual learning and continuous improvement with reference to the Middle East.


MEJM publishes articles including empirical research, conceptual papers, in-depth literature reviews and testing of alternative methodologies and theories that have significant contributions to the knowledge of management in the Middle East region. The journal strives to bridge the gap between academia and practice; hence it also publishes viewpoints from practitioners, case studies and research notes of emerging trends. Book reviews of cutting edge topics are also welcome. The journal will also combine a region-specific orientation with a comparative approach.
