Journal of East European Management Studies


The Journal of East European Management Studies (JEEMS) aims to promote dialogue and cooperation among scholars from all countries who seek to examine, explore and explain the behaviour and practices of management within the transforming societies of Central and Eastern Europe. As such, the theoretical interests of the journal focus on
a) organisational and management change;
b) Central and East European societies (including those on the fringes of Europe) undergoing processes of transition or transformation; and
c) scientific issues of business, management and organisation that arise in such contexts.

JEEMS aims to attract social scientific contributions from scholars of any nation and region, but particularly wishes to encourage authors from those countries directly experiencing transformational change. Its potential readership is international, comprising academics and practitioners with an involvement or interest in the management of change in transforming societies in Central and Eastern Europe.

The journal is listed in the Thomson Reuters Social Sciences Citation Index (Impact Factor 0.571; Journal Citation Reports ® 2018) and Scopus.

Peer Review Process

  • Authors are required to submit a paper as an email attachment sent to the JEEMS co-ordinator.
  • The editorial committee checks all submissions for consistency with the journal’s general principles and mission. Papers found inappropriate will be immediately rejected.
  • All submitted articles found appropriate will be subject to a double-blind review process, which includes a minimum of two anonymous reviewers, if possible from both a Western and a CEE country.
  • If the reviewers require some revisions to be done, the authors must re-submit their revised paper together with an accompanying letter, which explains in detail how the authors have responded to the reviewers’ comments.
  • Contributions submitted as research notes do not undergo a double-blind review process. Instead the editorial committee will consider their appropriateness for publication.
  • The editorial committee relies broadly on the reviewers’ comments and decisions. However, especially where the reviewers make contrasting judgements, the editorial committee will take the final decision about acceptance or rejection.
