The Journal of International Economics and Management (JIEM) was named as External Economics Review (EER) with six issues per year for the Vietnamese version from 2002 to 2019 and three issues per year for the English version from 2013 to 2019. Since 2019, the EER was changed to JIEM with three issues a year.

The JIEM publishes original research papers relating to all aspects of economics and management ranging from theoretical studies to quantitative or analytical studies addressing concerns viewed from international, regional, and local dimensions that are of interest to the general readers of the journal. Its purposes are to promote knowledge creation and knowledge transfer in the fields of economics, management, and interrelations with other disciplines in social and natural sciences towards achieving sustainable economic development.
