The Journal of Advances in Management Research (JAMR) will publish theoretical, technical and practice-based papers that make a significant contribution to topics that fall within the scope of the journal. We prefer research papers that have a sound methodological foundation and which include any of the following: case studies; the sharing of practices and experiences; quantitative and qualitative research; structural equation modelling; interpretative structural modelling; system dynamics; simulation; conventional optimization; the use of meta-heuristics tools. Papers will only be accepted if they are well written and conform to the journal’s style. We expect author(s) to provide a section on literature-review and provide an indication of gap-in-research, which could be one of the motivations of the composition of the paper. Each paper is reviewed by the editors and, if it is judged suitable for this publication, it is then sent to two referees for double blind peer review.

The reviewing process

All submissions go through a preliminary evaluation. If a paper is judged to be suitable for the journal, it enters a peer-review process. Based on their recommendations, the editor then decides whether the paper should be accepted as it is, revised or rejected. Indian Growth and Development Review is committed to an initial decision on a research article within four months from the date of assigning a referee to the paper.
