We recommend that authors refer to these instructions, as well as the Instructions to Authors: Style and Form, during submission, peer review, acceptance, proof correction, and final publication phases.The journal publishes on its website the Annual Report of the International MBA Network in Agribusiness and Commerce, thus enabling members to have immediate access to the papers. Reactions to articles previously published in APSTRACT should be sent to the Editor.

If necessary reviewers or Editors may request more than one revision round of a manuscript, and alternative reviewers may also be invited to review the manuscript at any time. After acceptance, it currently takes 1-2 week to get a citable, uncorrected draft of the article online, another 4 weeks to get the final corrected article online, and a few weeks later this is compiled into an online and offline volume and issue. The print copy follows 2-3 weeks later.
