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.
