I am really glad to share with you all July to December 2016 issue of Jaipuria International Journal of Management Research (JIJMR). It is a matter of pride that we are able to maintain time line of the journal intact in times when many of the prestigious journals also run behind the schedule. Credit of the same goes to the contributors who find our journal relevant and trustworthy in its processes and approach and had sent their contribution for publication consideration.

As the journal is completing its two volumes with publication of this issue, we express our apology for not being able to accept all the manuscripts submitted for publication consideration. Since we follow double blind review process for any submitted manuscript, many manuscripts are turned down by the reviewers for not matching with journal theme, or not related to contemporary issues or lack of original research and so on. We share reviewers’ feedback with the authors and encourage them to rework as per reviewers’ suggestions. All this process consumers lot of time and hence many manuscripts are turned down for not been able to follow the schedule and timelines. I suggest all the potential authors to submit their manuscripts well in advance, in fact within the first month of next issue frequency. This will provide enough time for reviewers, editorial board and authors to reach to finalize a manuscript as per journal set criteria.

I would also like to suggest all the potential contributors to self-check their manuscripts for plagiarism before submitting to JIJMR and ensure that only plagiarism free contents are sent to us. We as members of the Editorial Board are committed to abolish plagiarism completely and hence all received manuscripts are first checked for plagiarism through Turnitin, the state-of-the-art anti-plagiarism software even before submitting to reviewers. I am sure all our contributors will co-operate with us and fight together to abolish this menace from academic community.

This issue consists of eight papers, a case study and also a book review. We have received two papers from abroad, one from Canada and another from Bangladesh for this issue. I am glad to see the spread of the journal to different continents and sincerely hope that this outreach will continue and more and more authors across continents and countries will be contributing to this journal.

It is again a matter of privilege and pride that India’s leading journal subscriptions company has adopted this journal for co-marketing from their platform. The journal will also be available both in e-form and print form through i-Scholar of Informatics Publishing Limited. Our subscribers have now option to subscribe the journal either directly from us or through Informatics Publishing Limited. Orders may also be sent through your regular subscription agent.

Finally, once again I reiterate our commitment to publish the journal in time and provide a platform to worldwide academia, researchers and management practitioners to highlight and showcase their work and together take management science research to the newer peaks. Your feedback and suggestions are most welcome and will be taken up with utmost sincerity.
