Mission & Objectives

The JCER is an academic journal that aims to be a platform for interested parts with different countries and experiences. Special attention is paid to economics, financial analysis and customs issues although we stand ready to offer our readership high-quality articles on law and ICT. In short, a launch of the JCER is purely market driven phenomena as it reflects increased demand for high-quality empirical investigations and scarcity of academic outlets on customs matters that serve as means of exchanging the results of research in the field.
A valid question could be asked as to why the field of customs and business needs another journal and why now. There is not a hefty cohort of academic journals that currently publish work across suggested and interrelated disciplines altogether. Our main rationale for the journal as well as for the timing of the enterprise is related to the recent financial turmoil that led to the global economic downfall to the extent the world has not seen since 2009. The scope and scale of these events emphasize the importance of applied knowledge in customs, economics, business and finance. A sharp price decline in energy resources bring about natural-resource driven countries to collect revenue through promoting international business. Today, international borders seen not an obstacle rather opportunities and governments act to promote trade facilitation. Facilitation comes not only with favourable sequel but also with dissenting consequences. Today, the essence of illegal trafficking, economic attack has changed and fast-paced, complex working environment of customs require high-calibre employees with sound understanding of global economic, political, financial and business factors and the ability to transfer knowledge into practical solutions and nimble strategies.
The modern-era obstacles therefore requires customs officers a cross-disciplinary set of expertise and entirely new approach than has been previously required. This can only be attained from a masterly manner to capacity building and progress and the obtainability of meticulously analysed datas to make optimal decision.
During the current state of affairs, however, we have found that the nonexistence of locally published academic journal concentrated for customs, economics, finance and business en masse makes it hard to some extent for customs professionals to take proper measures without having interdisciplinary knowledge on international trade. With this in mind we are sure that the Journal of Customs & Economics Review set to be a piece of puzzle for customs processes to increase its human capacity with contributing to their command of aforementioned areas and serve as a tribune for academicians, practitioners, customs professionals, researchers, students and all other concerned parties. In addition, we strongly believe that JCER will be a journal that comes in mind first when customs officers need valuable information.
