Asian Journal of Green Management

The Asian Journal of Green Management is a peer-reviewed journal for research in the social science and related disciplines.  The Journal seeks to include empirical, conceptual and methodological articles across the full range of green management in Asian countries.

The Asian Journal of Green Management provides a forum for academics and practitioners to share latest developments and advances in the knowledge and practice of global business dimensions. It publishes scholarly articles of an interdisciplinary nature with contemporary global relevance. It also aims to foster the exchange of ideas on a range of important international issues, and in doing so, provide a stimulus for further research and development of global perspectives. To this end, our objective is to attract quality scholarship that can practically benefit corporate and other institutions in their overall development as well as society at large. We encourage contributions from around the globe with a special emphasis on emerging economies. 

Research studies are of particular interest if the research questions have clear relevance to green management. Topics on the journal include but are not limited to:

Peer Review Process

ASIAN JOURNAL OF GREEN MANAGEMENT uses a double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author’s identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not disclose any aspect of their identity. To comply with this requirement, please ensure the following when submitting to the journal:

  • Submit the Title Page containing the Authors’ details and a Blinded Manuscript with no author details included as 2 separate files.
  • After a paper is submitted to ASIAN JOURNAL OF GREEN MANAGEMENT, a journal editor screens the manuscript to generate a plagiarism report using Turnitin. If the manuscript complies with the journal’s requirements and plagiarism is below the 10% threshold, the handling editor sends invitations to individuals who he or she believes would be appropriate reviewers. If a paper does not fulfil the journal’s criteria, the handling editor shall rejects the submission.
  • Potential reviewers consider the invitation in light of their individual expertise, potential areas of conflict of interest, and issues of availability. Following this, they may accept or decline to review a particular submission. If possible, when declining, a reviewer is encouraged to recommend alternative reviewers. The first read is used to form an initial impression of the work. If major problems are found at this stage, the reviewer may feel comfortable rejecting the paper without further review. Otherwise, the reviewer shall continue to review the paper several times, taking notes so as to conduct a detailed point-by-point review. The review is then submitted to the journal, with a recommendation to accept or reject it – or else, with a request for revision (usually flagged as either major or minor) before being reconsidered for publication.
  • Lastly, members of the editorial board of the ASIAN JOURNAL OF GREEN MANAGEMENT  shall consider the peer reviewers’ reports and make the final decision to accept or reject the manuscript for publication. If accepted, the paper is sent to production. If the article is rejected or sent back for either major or minor revision, the handling editor is encouraged to include constructive comments from the reviewers to help the author improve the article. At this point, reviewers should also be sent an e-mail inform them of the outcome of their review.
