Journal co-edited by Cass professor joins ranks of leading business publications

Asia Pacific Business Review accepted onto coveted academic journal list

An academic journal co-edited by Cass Professor Chris Rowley, Director of the Centre for Research on Asian Management, has been accepted onto a list of the world's top business journals.

Asian Pacific Business Review (APBR) has been added to the Thomson Reuters Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) - a database of nearly 2,500 of the world's leading social science journals across 50 disciplines.

It means the APBR, which publishes articles on Asia Pacific business, management and economics, joins the ranks of around 90 of the world's most respected business journals.

 Professor Rowley, an expert in Asian business and human resource management, said: "The SSCI contains a list of journals considered to have the greatest impact in their academic field. To be accepted onto the list is a great honour and confirms the APBR's place as one of the world's foremost business publications."

The growth of the Asia Pacific region and the rising presence of its multinationals in world markets has raised a number of questions about the origins of national economic success.

APBR addresses these key questions and draws together the lessons of economics, history, politics and culture in order to explore business in the Asia Pacific countries.

The review, which is published quarterly, is intended for both academics and interested observers. It is co-edited by Professor Malcolm Warner.
