Scope and policy
The South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences (SAJEMS) is a leading publication for interdisciplinary research in economic and management sciences, with a special focus on the African continent. SAJEMS publishes and disseminates academic articles that contribute to the understanding of African markets and the behaviour of economic agents operating in those markets, including consumers, firms and regulators. In addition to applied research on African markets and market participants, the editorial board invites authors to submit interdisciplinary research that breaks down common intellectual silos and prepares a new path for debate on the operation, regulation and development of markets in and around Africa.
The intended audience of this journal is academics in the economics and management fields.
SAJEMS is a refereed scientific journal and is accredited by Thomson Reuters in their Social Sciences Citation Index and by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training.
