NSHM Journal of Management Research and Applications
As part of its commitment to promote research and publication in all areas of management, the Business Research and Information Centre (BRIC) at NSHM Business School has introduced a bi-annual refereed journal, NSHM Journal of Management Research and Applications (NJMRA). The objective of NJMRA is to present current research and ideas in the field of management in a lucid format accessible to both the academia and industry. The journal is also expected to act as a platform for industry professionals to share their best practices.
NJMRA invites original research-based papers, articles, book reviews and management cases on topics of current concern in the areas of management, development economics and related social sciences. It looks for conceptually sound and methodologically robust articles that harness and extend knowledge on all domains of management through empirical work or by building on existing concepts, and draw out the implication of the research for practitioners. The section on practices on the other hand is expected to extend the knowledge of the academic researchers in this discipline. Consequently, we expect the articles to have the potential to advance both management theory and practice through this bilateral exchange and synthesis of ideas and information.
The journal will be published twice a year in the months of June and December.
This Journal is a forum for academicians, business leaders, policy makers, researchers and students to exchange and discuss ideas, to reflect on experiences and approaches, and to strengthen the spirit of cooperation and collaboration between industry and academia. It will be a perfect portal for presenting and discussing research findings and current practices pertaining to various facets of innovation to achieve competitive advantage.
In view of the broad spectrum of readership, NJMRA invites contributions to any of the various sections of the journal:
Research Papers Conceptual Empirical Practice Perspectives Book Reviews Case Studies
Some of the suggested themes on which contributions are welcome, are articles in the fields of general management, corporate strategy, policy and governance; finance, control and corporate laws; public policy; IT and systems; marketing; OB/HR; technology and manufacturing; and related areas like economics, sociology and other social sciences. Articles that consist of literature surveys or discussions on practices in industry and reviews of books that have been published within one to two years of the receipt of the review will be also be considered. Industrialists, CEOs and entrepreneurs may submit articles on management practices which enable them to share their experiences in exploring new and under researched areas in management.
NSHM Journal of Management Research and Applications is a refereed journal. All manuscripts submitted for publication would be screened by the editorial board for relevance to the Journal. They would then be put through 'double blind review process' that may normally take four to eight months. Manuscripts accepted for publication will have to be edited to suit the Journal's format. The Editorial Board of NJMRA reserves the right to shortlist a paper/article for a particular section of the Journal depending on its suitability.
