With the latest CiteScore2021 announcement by SCOPUS and the last two years of SJR, the ABAC Journal has now been placed in Q1 by both SCOPUS and SJR, under the category of Literature and Literary Theory, while also being placed in Q3 under Social Sciences (miscellaneous).

This has prompted us to have a critical look at our aims & scope to come up with a better fit with our strengths and evolving identity, as follows:

Effective from the date of this announcement, the Aims & Scope of the ABAC Journal will be revised to:

Journal of Business Management, and Related Social Sciences

In a practical context Business management encompasses all areas of business practices, as well as new insights and/or further developments in business theories with a specific focus on tourism, marketing, business management, finance, or economics. 

Under Related Social Sciences, we welcome original papers in 3 related areas:  

  • Culture-based business and industry, for example but not limited to, Thailand (or Asian) food industry, Thai (or Asian) film industry, and music entrepreneurship
  • Oriental herbal products, the plant-based health & wellness industry, or alternative medical care businesses
  • English language acquisition or training for business purposes

Please note that papers in these three areas must be related to business management in order to be published in the ABAC journal.
