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 and development of markets in and around Africa.
SAJEMS is a refereed scientific journal and is accredited by ISI Thomson in their Social Sciences Citation Index and by the South African Department of Education. SAJEMS is also indexed and abstracted in EconLit, the electronic database of the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL); the relevant JEL classification number appears with the abstract of each article.
SAJEMS, which appears in March, June, September and December, is hosted by the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences at the University of Pretoria. All published articles are assumed to represent the views of the authors; neither the editorial board of the journal nor the University of Pretoria accept responsibility for those views.
