Welcome Note from the Editors-in-Chief
We are honored to extend a heartfelt welcome to you for the revitalized Arab Economic and Business Journal (AEBJ).

AEBJ has a rich history, dating back to its inception in 2009 when it was established to serve as a platform for disseminating research in the fields of business and economics across the Arab region. However, our journey took an exciting turn in 2018 as we transitioned to a new editorial home, Elsevier's Digital Commons. This transition marked a pivotal moment in our mission to advance scholarly excellence.

One of our foremost objectives is to secure Scopus indexation, a milestone that will firmly establish AEBJ as a leading research publisher representing the Arab region. To achieve this, we remain committed to maintaining a comprehensive scope, embracing a diverse range of research areas within the realms of business and economics. We extend our sincere appreciation to our dedicated editorial board and our extensive network of international reviewers, whose unwavering support and contributions continuously elevate the quality and rigor of AEBJ.

At its core, AEBJ was conceived as a catalyst for scholarly interaction and dialogue, transcending geographic boundaries to foster global collaboration. We are steadfast in our commitment to publishing a rich tapestry of research, encompassing qualitative and quantitative studies, theoretical explorations, and comprehensive literature reviews. Furthermore, AEBJ will continue to provide a dedicated platform for special issues, amplifying emerging research and niche topics that hold profound significance for the fields of economy and business. This endeavor takes on heightened importance in today's world, where organizations, communities, and nations grapple with pressing global challenges, such as climate change, pandemics, food safety, and more. Scholarly work that underscores the intricate interplay between business and society remains pivotal in addressing these issues.

As your Editors-in-Chief, we are genuinely excited to invite you not only to be consumers of knowledge but also to consider AEBJ as a potential outlet for your future contributions as authors. Your insights and research are invaluable additions to our ongoing pursuit of academic excellence.

Once again, welcome to the dynamic world of the Arab Economic and Business Journal. Together, we embark on a journey of exploration, discovery, and scholarly growth.
