Management – Journal of Contemporary Management Issues (MJCMI) is an international academic journal, whose primary aim is to disseminate relevant scientific knowledge and information in business and multidisciplinary research, relevant to the theory and practice of managing contemporary business, non-profit, and public organizations. We are committed to anonymous peer review and open access. We seek to encourage scientific dialogue among research communities of Central-East and South-East Europe with those from the developed market societies, as well as emerging economies from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. We strive to publish high-quality business-related research, that promotes the development and competitiveness of individuals, organizations, and societies. 


MJCMI welcomes research that addresses the theory and practice of organizational functioning, but also accepts studies on general business topics, with significant managerial implications. We especially focus on the geographical areas of Central-East and South-East Europe, as well as the emerging markets and market societies, regardless of their geographic location. Theoretical contributions, which are especially encouraged include: a) issues of organizational and socio-economic change, transition, and transformation in the for-profit, non-profit, and public sector contexts, b) organizational and macroeconomic interactions between the emerging and developed market economies and societies, with significant implications for managerial practices, c) contributions to the theory and practice of organizational functioning in emerging markets and societies, with a focus on sectors, contributing to their overall socio-economic development, such as education, healthcare, social care, and others, d) socio-economic trends, relevant to organizational functioning and management practices in emerging markets and societies, including migration, environmental and sustainability issues, response to natural, social, and economic crises, ethics and corporate social responsibility, and others. Other relevant topics are also welcome, depending on the assessment of the editorial team. We particularly encourage multi-disciplinary research and welcome contributions from the fields of anthropology, psychology, sociology, education, and others that fit the scope of the journal.
