The Economic and Business Review (EBR) is the official peer-reviewed journal of the University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business. Economic and Business Review is the successor to the “Ekonomska revija” (Economic Review, 1950-1990), and the “Slovenska ekonomska revija” (Slovenian Economic Review, 1991-1999). Between the years 1950 and 1999, it developed as a journal serving Slovenia. In 1999, the EBR transformed into a modern scientific journal with an international editorial board serving countries outside of Slovenia. Since its inception, the EBR respected its specific role as a platform for the development of professional terminology in the Slovene language in the areas of economics and business. The editorial policy reflected this by publishing one issue per year dedicated to articles in the Slovene language. As of 2021, the editorial policy in this respect changed as other channels for language development were considered more effective. Consequently, only articles in the English language are published from 2021 onwards.
EBR is a double-blind refereed OPEN ACCESS journal that aims to further the research and disseminate research results in the area of applied business and economic studies, including various fields of economic research, bank and financial management, business informatics, entrepreneurship, international business, management and marketing with the focus on the Central and Eastern Europe.
See the Aims and Scope for complete coverage of the journal.
