Aims and Scope

The Journal of Co-operative and Business Studies provides a platform for discussions among scholars and co-operative practitioners to increase understanding of new and emerging paradigms toward modern co-operative theory and practices.  In particular, we focus on the co-operative sector (producers, distributors, consumers, housing, workers, agricultural activities, savings and credit undertakings, co-operative and micro-insurance, fishing, mining, and other firms), and other sectors within the “associative economy” including small businesses, mutual funds, microfinance, building societies, community-based activities, and member-based organisations. The journal is bi-annual, and publishes high-quality research-based articles, policy debates, review articles, and book reviews.
