The constant evolution of the international trading system, the proliferation of regional trade blocs, the role of the WTO, the changes in production and distribution technologies, the volatility of oil prices and emergence of new financial architecture have contributed significantly to the growth of world trade.

Emergence of developing economies, especially BRICS, rise of Southeast Asian countries and South-South Cooperation have challenged the long dominance of the North. The pattern of trade among individual countries, the behaviour of MNCs and the aspirations of individual entrepreneurs have also changed immensely. Capitalization of trade gains, business opportunities, welfare of emerging countries and LDCs and instability of financial markets are constantly posing challenges to be tackled at individual, firm and countries level. All these require fundamental research to provide the necessary policy prescriptions, analysis and critical inputs suitable for a developing economy like India and the world.

The Foreign Trade Review (FTR), a peer-reviewed quarterly journal, has more than four and half decades of existence in the academic research fraternity. Throughout this period, the Journal has aimed to cater to the above-mentioned research domain.

  • The target audience of FTR includes academicians, university professors, researchers, policy makers, policy analysts, trade and industry professionals, various university libraries, management institutes, multilateral bodies like WTO, UNCTAD, World Bank etc.
  • The Journal publishes articles having academic rigour, extensive trade data analysis and serious policy implications suitable for higher academic research and policy analysis.
  • Articles published in FTR covers disciplines such as international trade, WTO issues, international finance, regional trade blocs, global financial crisis, trade facilitation, role of IT in international business, sectoral analysis, etc.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

The Foreign Trade Review is intended to serve as a comprehensive forum for theoretical and empirical research on cross-border issues. The coverage of the journal includes, but is not limited to the following branches of research: international trade and open economy macroeconomics, international marketing, international finance, international logistics and trade facilitation, and multilateral trade law architecture and WTO-related research. The journal publishes research articles, literature review articles, short commentaries and book reviews. Foreign Trade Review follows a double-blind peer review policy. Rather than replication exercises, submissions are sought for new ways of estimating existing theoretical models and development of new theoretical models along with their empirical estimation. Application of newly developed statistical models (along with their computer programmes and dataset, if required) in the context of existing theory or new theory is another area of interest for the journal. The major target audience of Foreign Trade Review includes the researchers and academicians involved in theoretical and empirical research on cross-border issues.
