 In 1998, the Faculty of Economics, Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University founded an independent international peer-reviewed and refereed practical scientific journal "Social Economy", the first issue of which was published in January 1999 and it was published permanently every two months. Prominent scientists from Georgia and foreign countries were invited to the editorial board. The journal was distinguished by its original columns, articles and reviews dedicated to the acute and current economic problems of the country were published, and in a few years the journal gained popularity not only in Georgia - it also became internationally referred and reviewed. (The journal was sent to many other countries). In 2005, the editor-in-chief of the journal, Prof. Revaz Gogokhia received a letter of thanks from the head of the Library of Congress for his active cooperation with them.

In 2008, based on the journal "Social Economy", the international peer-reviewed and refereed journal "Economy and Business" was established at the Faculty of Economics and Business, Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University. The editorial board was renewed. It was filled with new Georgian and foreign professional scientific economists, rubrics were improved and perfected, format and style were changed and refined. The journal switched to university funding.
