Global Economics Review (GER) was introduced by Humanity Only (HO) through the research project sponsored and guided by Humanity Research Council (HRC) - a sub-body of Humanity Development Council (HDS). GER is an open-access journal which provides quality contents to readers without fees. GER supports the growth of research whether qualitative or quantitative and encourages findings based on the newly emerging tools and methods utilized in experiments, observations, interviews, analysis and surveys which invigorates economics and all its domains. GER is a quarterly and double-blind peer-reviewed research journal which covers its major sub-disciplines e.g. macroeconomics, microeconomics, business economics, econometrics, public economics, development economics, financial economics, business economics, behavioral economics, labour economics, monetary economics, environmental economics, urban economics, resource economics, industrial economics, Marxist economics, Classical economics and energy economics.
Mission & Vision
GER aims at human development through informed application of insight gained from the processes of economics. The journal considers economics as the backbone of transforming the future of humanity into that offers prosperity based on efficiency. Any improvement that is offered in the form of research often meets resistance. The journal assumes the role of challenger for the existing biases in research and academics which block the way to human prosperity as they rely on stagnancy and oppose innovation and application as the driving force of research. GER offers an opportunity for the researchers who share this mission and vision to publish their quality work and share it with the humanity. GER, therefore, leads the field of economics in realizing the motto of efficient utilization of resources and exchange of goods and services that promote human prosperity.
Objectives & Focus
1. Quality research in all areas of economics
2. Excellent contents that utilizes the best research tools
3. A platform for economists, academicians, researchers and professionals in allied fields to collaborate in conduct of quality research projects in economics
4. Healthy dialogues, variety and respect for difference of viewpoints for uncovering the valid and reliable facts.
GER covers not only the major braches of economics, it also supports researches in economics that maintain multidisciplinary, inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary perspective. Therefore, it welcomes articles covering the classical or modern approaches, macro or micro dimensions and addresses theoretical or applied issues. Therefore, it encompasses most of the sub-disciplines of economics (but not limited to) i.e. macroeconomics, microeconomics, business economics, econometrics, public economics, development economics, financial economics, business economics, behavioral economics, labour economics, monetary economics, environmental economics, urban economics, resource economics, industrial economics, Marxist economics, Classical economics and energy economics.
GER steadfastly observes the best practices in the research related to the issues of economics. Neutrality remains the guiding principle in accepting articles for publication. The review process value originality, validity, reliability, significance, structuring of contents and ethical concerns in the articles that are to be accepted for publication.
Medium of Journal (Online, Print, OD, CD, other)
Type of Journal (Multidisciplinary, Interdisciplinary)
GER is dedicated to highest standards of research. Therefore, it allows papers of multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary nature (provided it falls within its scope).
According to the Humanity Only (HO) trustee Board recommendation, GER was initially published on Annual base, one issue per year i.e. 2016 and 2017. But due to the on-and-on requests of the national academia the aforementioned board revise its recommendation for 2018 breakup: i.e. Two Issues per year (Spring & Fall) and now its recommended to publish Four Issues per year (Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall).
GER is managing and evaluating all the research articles, papers and cases by "Double-Blind Peer Review" exclusively. GER uses double-blind review, which means that the reviewer, editor and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, editor and vice versa, throughout the review process.
GER has a comprehensive process of evaluation as it follow double-blind peer review wherein after preliminary assessment (or Pre-Editorial Review) of an article by the Managing and Assistant Managing Editor(s), the same is reviewed by another internal Committee (known as an Editorial Review Committee) comprising the GER Editor, Associate Editor(s)and Assistant Editor(s). However, selected members of the Advisory Board of GER covering subject area of the article are also consulted during the internal review process and after recommendations of the Editorial Review Committee, the article goes through a cycle of final evaluation i.e. review by relevant National and International peer reviewers.
