It is my privilege to share with you all our next issue of JIJMR for the period January to June 2017. With publication of this issue, Jaipuria International Journal of Management Research (JIJMR) has entered into its third volume. We take pride in timely publication of our journal with pure research based papers and case studies on contemporary management issues. Due to overwhelming response of the researchers and practitioners in contributing their research papers for the journal, we are able to publish the journal always in time. I express my sincere thanks to all contributors who consider our journal relevant and trustworthy in its processes and approach. This is the best benchmark of quality of the publication. I want to reiterate here that JIJMR is purely an academic pursuit to encourage management research globally and we continue to do so.
I express my sincere regret to the authors whose papers couldn’t be accommodated in the journal issue. Papers in the journal are included as per reviewers’ feedback following double blind review process. Reviewers primarily consider three-four aspects for selecting a paper viz. originality, relevance to the journal theme, research work, and timely submission and if the author has followed the writing style as prescribed in journal’s guidelines. As a result, even many quality publications which don’t adhere to journal guidelines are rejected. I suggest all the contributors to go through journal website and follow the journal guidelines while preparing your manuscript and send research based papers only for the journal well in advance.
As mentioned in previous issues also, self-check by the authors before sending a paper to the journal is highly advisable as we strictly believe in ensuring plagiarism free contents and check all the manuscripts at our end. If similarity check produces result beyond the prescribed limit of the reviewers and editorial board, then paper is automatically rejected and no further communication is made to revise the paper. I am sure all contributors would help us in maintaining academic and research integrity and shall send us original contents only for publication consideration.
Seven research papers and two case studies are included in the current issue of the journal. Papers from different continents have found place in the current issue. We are trying to reach more and more authors globally and hope that in the times to come, we shall have papers from further more countries.
Many of you have might have gone through availability of full text contents of the journal on i-Scholar platform if you subscribe to i-Scholar and journal contents are also indexed in JGate. References of these papers will also be available on google scholar. It is requested to all the readers and authors to recommend the journal to UGC for inclusion of the same in their list of approved journals. It is based upon your recommendations that UGC includes a journal in their list.
With this issue, we are now into publication of the third volume of the journal. I assure you that we shall maintain publishing the journal in time and will follow fully transparent criteria for selection and inclusion of papers in this journal without any prejudice. This journal will always serve as the most suitable platform to worldwide academia, researchers and management practitioners to highlight and showcase their work.
Please send your candid feedback to further improve the quality of the journal.
