Journal Policies

Applied Studies in Agribusiness and Commerce (APSTRACT) is the official periodical of the International MBA Network in Agribusiness and Commerce published to promote the discussion and dissemination of applied research in applied economics, agribusiness and commerce carried out within the International MBA Network.

These instructions detail policies and procedures for publishing in the APSTRACT Journal. We recommend that authors refer to these instructions, as well as the Instructions to Authors: Style and Form, during submission, peer review, acceptance, proof correction, and final publication phases.

The journal publishes on its website the Annual Report of the International MBA Network in Agribusiness and Commerce, thus enabling members to have immediate access to the papers. Reactions to articles previously published in APSTRACT should be sent to the Editor.

Authors are responsible for reading their manuscripts and hereby affirm that the content of their manuscripts (data including graphs, figures, tables, and illustrations) has not appeared in print elsewhere (except as abstracts, local or regional field day reports, extension letters, or non-peer-reviewed proceedings of conferences). Authors are aware that if the content detailed above has been published elsewhere, our Journal cannot accept it.

To avoid plagiarism, after the manuscript arrives at the editor’s office, it will be checked by an international plagiarism search software programme. If the similarity index is too high the manuscript will be immediately refused.

Aims and Scope

The purpose of the journal is to ensure the publication of research results and assist in the exchange of information between researchers (Ph.D. and MBA students) and practicing professionals.

Submitted manuscripts should be related to the topic areas, which include production economics and agribusiness management and policy, agricultural environmental issues, regional-, rural- and spatial development (e.g.: regional tourism, local sports management), the marketing of agricultural food products and their trade. Papers should have a practical orientation and demonstrate innovation in analysis, methods or application.

Research into a significant economic component, analyses of problems connected to research, the extension and teaching of the International MBA Network in Agribusiness and Commerce are also encouraged. In addition, papers that report on advances in teaching and outreach techniques are also considered as suitable for publication.
