The Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation has recently launched the first English-language academic journal on business and economics published in Russia – Review of Business and Economics Studies (ROBES). ROBES is a peer-reviewed scholarly international journal, published in English language with Russian abstracts. The journal’s mission is to provide scientific perspective on wide range of topical economic and business subjects. The choice of topics for this quarterly publication is based on discussion between editorial board members, formed by renowned academics and practitioners from Russia, USA, Europe and Asia.
The first issue of Review of Business and Economics Studies has become available in October 2013, both in printed form and electronically (access is free).
Professor Mukhadin Eskindarov, the rector of Financial University, pointed out in his welcome address: 'The Financial University has been a leader in the field of economics education and research for nearly a century, firmly establishing itself as a center of innovations. It is symbolic that University’s 95-anniversary year is marked with a new initiative – by the launch of the international academic journal, which would become the first such publication in Russia.' Prof. Mukhadin Eskindarov is the chairman of editorial board of ROBES.
Editor-in-Chief of ROBES is Prof. Alexander Ilyinsky, Dean of International Finance Faculty of the Financial University.
