Journal of Globalization Studies

Published since 2010
ISSN 2075-8103
Frequency: Semiannual

The "Journal of Globalization Studies" is a new international peer-reviewed journal distinguished by its focus on the systemic aspects of globalization processes in particular geographic, social, cultural and historical contexts.

While there are a number of journals dealing with the Globalization problems, growing complexity and recurrent crises demand new approaches. The present financial crisis has only emphasized the need to develop local solutions in a global environment. New approaches are required that demonstrate an appreciation of the "local" in particular geographic, social, cultural and historical contexts, while simultaneously promoting effective change in response to pressing global issues. This requires a wider and more relevant panorama of views. In particular, perspectives that cross organizational, geographic and cultural boundaries may reduce misunderstanding and diminish the negative aspects of globalization.

The "Journal of Globalization Studies" builds on previous research and a sharing of perspectives by the three editors – two from Russia and one from New Zealand. The idea for the journal came from the Russian editors – but why? Russia is a place wh ere the Western and non-Western ideas and cultural processes have been meeting for centuries. In this respect Russia is a suitable country for the establishment of a journal with the aims outlined above.

Aims of the journal

The "Journal of Globalization Studies" provides a multi-faceted analysis of globalization, based on perspectives of authors working in both Western and non-Western traditions. The current events such as the financial crisis illustrate that discussion should not be lim ited to particular geographic regions or narrowly-defined methods of analysis. We intend to co-operate with scholars from many different countries to provide visions of global processes from both the developed and developing countries, including those in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and including Russia and the other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The special character of the "Journal of Globalization Studies" is that it provides for a broadly international and multicultural forum on issues associated with globalization, and the influence of globalization in particular cultural-geographic regions. The journal invites all the students of globalization to enrich the discussion by presenting their own perspectives.

The journal is published in English.
