The Colombo Business Journal (CBJ) is a double-blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal in the field of business and management. It is published twice a year (June and December).

Aims and scope

CBJ aims to publish scholarly work in the field of business, management and organizations in the local, regional and global arena. Thus, its aim is two-fold: (1) to create a forum for exchanging views and launching intellectual debates among scholars and researchers in the field of management and (2) to advance the theory and practice of management through construction of new knowledge. CBJ is not restricted to a specific research paradigm, and thus welcomes submissions adopting a variety of methodologies and methods: quantitative, qualitative, and mixed. It entertains analysis at individual, divisional, organizational and inter-organizational levels. Embracing multidisciplinary perspectives for enhancing understanding, it encourages crossing borders and bringing insights from disciplines such as sociology, psychology, economics, and philosophy.
