The Annual Research Journal of SCMS started in the year 2013 is published by Symbiosis
Centre for Management Studies affiliated to Symbiosis International (Deemed University).
The journal seeks to publish original research articles in the form of conceptual
papers, theoretical and empirical research with clear theoretical backgrounds,
case-studies across the different disciplines/domains of management. Besides this,
position papers, review papers/term papers, working papers mentioning clearly the
research gaps in the respective fields are also encouraged. Some of the subthemes could
follow, but the papers may not be limited to the above sub-themes. Innovative
contributions that do not fit into the above areas but fall under the related functional
areas of management, could also be considered as they may benefit the researching
community at large.
The Journal adheres to the double-blind reviewing policy in which the identity of both
the reviewer and author are concealed from each other. The submitted manuscripts will be
assessed by reviewers with domain knowledge of the submission’s main research area, and
by at least one reviewer who comes from a discipline outside the author’s own field. All
manuscripts are assessed initially by the Editors and only those papers will be sent for
outside review that meet the methodological and editorial standards of the journal and
fit within the aims and scope of the journal.
The objective of this journal is to encourage and nurture upcoming thoughts and ideas
without diluting the conventional theories in the expanding stream of knowledge in the
disciplines of management and social science. Every year the journal sticks to a
specific theme, and papers are invited under that theme. The Journal is not charging any
amount from the authors for publishing.
