Journal of Emerging Economies and Islamic Research (JEEIR) is a scholarly international refereed online journal, jointly published by the Institute of Business Excellence of Faculty of Business and Management and UiTM Press of the Universiti Teknologi MARA, Shah Alam, Malaysia. The Journal under its previous name Economic Bulletin was first published in July 1993.

The Journal has been renamed to reflect two important global trends: Firstly, the rise of China and other emerging economies becoming major economic forces in the world shifting the centre of global economic gravity allegedly away from the West.  Secondly, the increasing global interest on Islam and the rapid increase in Muslim population, which have seen a phenomenal growth in Islamic Banking, Finance, Halal and other related industries. 

We believe that this is the first journal that brings into focus the two latest global trends of emerging economies and Islamic research together in one journal.

Focus of JEEIR:

This multi-disciplinary online journal has two broad focuses:

1. Economic issues relating to current emerging economies (or more commonly known as the emerging markets) covering developing and transition economies of Eastern Europe, Asia, South America, Middle East and North Africa (MENA) countries and the rest of Africa.

2. Islamic research within both emerging and developed economies, with an emphasis on Economics, Business, Banking, Finance, Marketing and Management disciplines.

Coverage of the Journal includes but not limited to:

  • Business/Managerial Economics
  • Environmental Economics
  • Gender Economics
