New journal to promote sustainable and responsible business, management and governance in the Tropics
The Journal of Tropical Futures: Sustainable Business, Governance & Development is a peer-reviewed journal from SAGE Publications administered by James Cook University, Singapore.
James Cook University (JCU) in Singapore is administering a large-scale project — the Journal of Tropical Futures: Sustainable Business, Governance & Development (JTF) — designed to address challenges relevant to sustainable business and management, economic development, governance, and international trade in the Tropics.
This peer-reviewed journal aims to explore in-depth and important issues, such as different forms of responsible management that can help navigate the unique challenges of the Tropics. After all, the countries that make up the Tropics (situated between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn) are largely developing in nature and some of the fastest growing regions in the world. They face challenges that include rapid urbanisation and ecological resilience (mitigating and adapting to human induced-change, conservation of the environment, biodiversity protection).
As a result, JTF is accepting contributions under the following:
- Sustainable Tropical Environments: Public Policy, Regional Development and Governance;
- Human and Workforce Development;
- International Business and Trade in Tropical Regions;
- Sustainable Business and Social Responsibility;
- Sustainable Tourism, Hospitality and Marketing
These contributions can take the form of rigorous empirical analyses (based on quantitative, qualitative and mixed-method research), as well as case studies, theoretical articles and conceptual reviews.
Associate Professor Jacob Wood — Associate Dean of Research at James Cook University in Singapore, and Managing Editor of JTF — said, “The Journal of Tropical Futures seeks to represent and address the complex and heterogeneous nature of the challenges facing these regions by exploring the interrelationship between business, management, political economy, development and the environment. We are particularly interested in the many tensions that exist between demands for economic growth, social and material wellbeing of populations and corresponding environmental impacts.”
By collecting studies that touch upon the Tropics and sustainable business and management, and subsequently showcasing them, the journal can shine a spotlight on significant and overlooked issues in the region, as well as discuss possible solutions. In fact, the key findings in the journal may be critical to contributing towards JCU’s mission of “Creating a brighter future for life in the tropics world-wide through graduates and discoveries that make a difference.”
