Editor's Note

Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Selangor Business School Journal (SBSJ), a peer-reviewed, open access journal that considers theoretical and empirical papers including to Business Law, Corporate Law, Marketing, Finance, Strategic Leadership, Economics, Administration, Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship as research articles, reviews, case studies and commentaries for publication.

While the journal aims to provide a platform for publishing results and research with a strong empirical component to bridge the gap between research and practice, we will avoid being straightjacketed into conventional modalities, and hence, we will also promote any article or paper that is thought provoking, critically inclined to challenge basic assumptions in the myriad fields of knowledge and pushes the frontiers of our intellectual capacity to the limit.

In this vein, to kick off our inaugural issue, we present SBSJ’s Vol. 1 (2021): Technological Advancement in the Age of Disruption, which contains articles that touches particularly on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), Blockchain and Big Data. It will be clear that the menacing virus in the room has been glaringly left out in our present discourse. And the reason is equally clear: we have dedicated our next issue exclusively for the discussion on this unprecedented crisis of the century under the overarching theme of “COVID-19 and its Discontents – What lies ahead for Business and the Economy?”
