Dear Patrons, world has come a long way amidst the COVID-19 pandemic which has disrupted and affected all of us in one way or the other. Academic institutions and studies have been badly affected but this deadly pandemic has also given rise to many new opportunities and new methods of learning. Online teaching and learning has become a new normal during these last nine months. Even small children have adopted the online ways of learning.
So for, no one is able to study in depth the long term impact of COVID-19 in different aspects of life as there doesn't seem an end to this pandemic currently. Virus strains are mutating and research for an all effective vaccine is still going on in spite of some vaccines already launched in developed markets with mixed results.
Under these unprecedented times, I am with great pleasure put before you latest issue of our journal for the period of July to December 2020. With publication of this issue, we have completed six years’journey of JIJMR as an independent journal that is sustaining itself and publishing in time in spite of all odds. As I always mention, this journey was not possible without active contribution of all our authors, reviewers and editors. My compliments to all on this occasion and I look forward for your continued association with the journal in future as well.
Current issue contains 9 research papers, a case study and a book review. Papers encompass different areas of management science where research is currently happening. It is really heartening to know that more and more researchers and even PGDM students are now continnously active in research. JIJMR is an open platform for these budding researchers and invite them to send their contributions for reviewing and publication purpose. Our reviewers will guide and suggest improvements in your manuscript and though you may have to go multiple rounds of review and editing process but I am sure after this long exercise you will be able to finally publish a really good quality publication.
We are continuously putting efforts to get this journal included in UGC-CARE list and in other indexing directories. Process will take its own time but I am hopeful for a positive outcome.
I would like to reiterate that we are publishing this journal to promote research culture across globe and it is entirely not-for-profit venture and authors can publish their research absolutely free of cost with only condition of providing original research contents relevant in today's context and in management discipline written strictly in accordance with author guidelines of the journal. I look forward for your continued association and wish you all Very Happy New Year 2021.
