Instructions to Authors for Paper Submission

The contributors are requested to adhere to the following guidelines.

The Editorial Process: The selection of papers for publication is based on their originality, knowledge content and application. The book endeavors to maintain balance between purely research oriented papers and those derived mainly from the experiences of practitioners involved in different areas of management. The manuscripts will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that they are being submitted to once at a time and have not been published, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. The Editors will review all submitted manuscripts initially. Manuscripts with insufficient originality will be rejected. The editors will not return the unaccepted manuscripts. Other manuscripts will be kept with reviewer(s)/Editors for review process. Within a time frame, the contributors will be informed about the editorial decision. Articles accepted would be copy edited for grammar, punctuation and print style.

About Manuscripts:

Introduction: Manuscript must be in English prepared on a standard A4 size paper setting. It must be prepared on a double space and single column with 1" margin set for top, bottom, left and right. It should be typed in 12 point, Times New Roman Font with page numbers at the bottom and centre of the every page.

Manuscript Title: The title of the paper should be in a 12 point Calibri Font. It should be bold typed, centered and fully capitalized.

Title, Author Name(s), affiliation(s), contact details & Affiliations: The author (s) full name, designation, affiliation (s), address, mobile/landline numbers, and email/alternate email address should be in 12 point Calibri Font. It must be centered underneath the title.

Abstract: Abstract should be in fully italicized text, not exceeding 300 words. The abstract must be informative and explain background, aims, methods, results and conclusion.

Keywords:Abstract must be followed by list of keywords, subject to the maximum of five. These should be arranged in alphabetic order separated by commas and full stop at the end.

Headings: All the headings and sub-headings should be in a 10 point Calibri Font. These must be bold faced, aligned left and fully capitalized. Leave a blank line before each heading.

Main Text: The main text should be in an 8 point Calibri Font, single spaced, fully justified.

Figures & Tables: These must be simple, centered & numbered, and table titles must be above the tables. Sources of data should be mentioned below the table.

Spellings: Use 'z' spelling instead of's' spellings. This means that words ending with 'ise', 'isation', etc., 'will be spelt with 'z' (e.g., 'recognize', 'organize', 'civilize'). Use British spellings in all cases rather than American spellings (hence, 'programme' not 'program', 'labour' not 'labor', and 'centre' not 'center').

Hyphenation: Please pay attention to consistency in the hyphenation of words. Do not alternate, for example, between 'psycho-social' and 'psychosocial', 'decision making' and 'decision-making'. (A distinction is, however, often made between noun and attributive adjective: for example: 'the middle class' but 'middle-class ethics'.)

Capitals: Use capitals sparingly and double-check the logical application of any distinctions you wish to make between specific and general use. Abbreviations: Include a final stop in abbreviations (words shortened by omitting the end), such as p., vol., and ed., but not in contractions (words shortened by omitting the middle), such as Mr, Dr, edn and eds. No stops are needed between capitals: e.g., IIM, EMBRASCON, AIDS. Short forms likely to be unfamiliar to some readers should be spelt out in full the first time they occur. Please avoid using 'i.e.' and 'e.g.' in the text but use them in the notes if you wish.

Notes: Notes should be numbered consecutively and presented at the end of the article on separate sheets of paper (and not at the foot of each page), typed in double space throughout, and with the heading 'Notes'. An acknowledgement or statement about the background of the article will be set as an unnumbered note before any other note. Notes should contain more than a mere reference.

Figures and Tables: Please present each figure and table on a separate sheet of paper gathering them together at the end of the article. Distinguish between figures (diagrams) and tables (statistical material) and number them in separate sequences, i.e., 'Figure 8', and 'Table 8.'

  • 1. Please use short and crisp titles and headings in tables and figures. The units of measurement should be stated and the sources should be cited at the foot of the table. Notes relating to the table should be placed after the source. Lay out parallel tables in similar ways using similar wording, and check any totals or averages.
  • 2. Include a mention of each figure or table in the text itself (for example 'as shown in Figure 2'), as well as indicating in the margin where the figure or table should go ('Fig. 2 near here'). Ensure that all words, proper nouns, place names, etc., in the tables and figures are spelt in exactly the same way as they are in the text.
  • 3. If you have the facility to provide original figure artwork of sufficient quality to be reproduced in the journal, it will certainly be welcome. If the artworks you are providing are larger than the print area of the journal, please ensure that all details and text in the artworks are sufficiently large so that they remain legible when reduced to the actual printed size of the journal. Further, it is crucial that all text in the artworks corresponds to the text of the article in spelling and style. Please obtain permission to reproduce any figures or photographs that are not your own copyright. Similarly, permission may be required for quotations beyond the limits of 'fair dealing'.

Numbers: Write numbers in figures (rather than words) for exact measurements and series of quantities, including percentages. In more general description, numbers below 10 should be spelt out in words. Use thousands, millions, billions, and not lakhs and crores. In the text use 'per cent'; in tables the symbol '%'. Write '0.8' rather than '.8', except for levels of probability. Use lower-case Italic for p (probability) and n (number). Use fuller forms for numbers and dates-e.g., 1980-88, and pp. 200-202.

Dates: Give specific dates in the form 22 November 1980. Decades should be referred to as 'the nineties'. Spell out 'the twentieth century', etc.

Miscellaneous: Please refer to your own contribution as 'this article'. The style for cross-references to figures and tables should be 'as Figure 2 shows' or 'as Table 1 shows' and not 'as shown in the figure below' or 'as shown in the table above'.

References: The list of all references should be alphabetically arranged. The author (s) should mention only the actually utilized references in the preparation of manuscript and they are supposed to Harvard Style of Referencing. The list of all references should be alphabetically arranged. The author (s) should mention only the actually utilized references in the preparation of manuscript and they are supposed to follow the references as per following:

All references must be placed at the end of the paper, following the endnotes. The list should state only those references, which are either cited in the text or the notes. More than one publication of the same author in the same year must be listed chronologically with the older item first. Use small (lower case) letters to denote them.
