Call for Papers:

Asia-Pacific Journal of Management Research and Innovation (APJMRI) is a quarterly double-blind, peer-reviewed refereed journal of Asia-Pacific Institute of Management, New Delhi, and is published in March, June, September and December every year. APJMRI carries theoretical and empirical papers, case studies, research notes, executive experience sharing and review articles, and it aims at disseminating new knowledge in the field of different domain areas of management, information technology and related disciplines. It provides a forum for deliberations and exchange of knowledge among academics, industries, researchers, planners and the practitioners who are concerned with the management, financial institutions, public and private organisations, as well as voluntary organisations. Our editorial policy is that the journal serves the profession by publishing significant new scholarly research in management discipline areas that are of the highest quality.

APJMRI is basically international in scope and organised into different colloquium streams, such as banking and finance, international business management, business research methods, financial management, general management, human resource management, marketing management, operations management and decision sciences, strategic management, economics, accounting, commerce, total quality management, business environment, business ethics and corporate governance, organisational behaviour, industrial psychology, enterprise systems, technology management, sustainable development, entrepreneurship, corporate restructuring, business intelligence and information system management. Each section has its own editorial mission, editors and review board. Through our peer-review process, we enhance the professional development of scholars, practitioners and doctoral students.

More specifically, APJMRI publishes papers that focus on:

  • Addressing the interface between theoretical insight and practical application, connecting the corporate world;
  • Enhancing the teaching and learning levels of management, especially through the use of experiential pedagogies and empirical research and case studies;
  • Representing the early stages of theorising about management and organising in unique and perceptive ways leading to business innovations and enterprise development;
  • Serving as an intellectual repository for our readers’ professional development.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

  • Submission Guidelines for Asia-Pacific Journal of Management Research and Innovation

    Asia-Pacific Journal of Management Research and Innovation is hosted on SAGE Track System, a web based online submission and peer review system. Please read the Manuscript Submission guidelines below, and then visit https://peerreview.sagepub.com/abr to login and submit your article online.

    All editorial correspondence should be addressed to the Journal Administrator at https://peerreview.sagepub.com/abr.

    Format of Manuscripts: All articles should be prepared using double-spacing throughout (not only the text but also dis­played quotations, tables, notes, references and any other matter). The text of manuscripts should not ordinarily exceed 5,000 words. All articles must be accompanied by an abstract of 150–200 words and up to six keywords. Book reviews must contain the name of the author/editor and the book reviewed place of publication and publisher, date of publication, number of pages and price.

    The Guidelines:

    • Contributors must provide their affiliation, complete postal and e-mail addresses, and fax and telephone numbers with their articles.

    • It is the author’s responsibility to disclose any potential conflict of interest regarding the manuscript.

    • All figures, i.e., diagrams, images and photographs, and tables should be provided separate from the text at the end and numbered in the order that they appear in text. Locations of tables and figures should be indicated in the text using callouts (e.g., ‘[insert Table 1 here]’) inserted after the respective paragraphs. Each figure and table should have a heading, an explanatory caption if necessary, and a source or reference in a separate file.

    • Black and white illustrations can also be supplied electronically at a resolution of at least 300 dpi, as .eps, .tif or .jpg files. They should be saved separately from the article file. All figures should have short descriptive captions typed on a separate sheet.

    • Endnotes should be numbered serially, the numbers embedded in the manuscript. The notes should be presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference.

    • Use British rather than American spellings (‘programme’ not ‘program’; ‘labour’ not ‘labor’). Where alternate forms exist, choose ‘ise’ spellings instead of ‘ize’.

    • It is the responsibility of authors to ensure that their articles are written in an acceptable international standard of English.

    • Articles should use non-sexist and non-racist language.

    • When referring to social actors ‘woman’ should be used, not ‘female’, and ‘women’ not ‘females’, unless the context requires otherwise. Similarly, ‘man’ and ‘men’ should be used, not ‘male’ and ‘males’. ‘Female’ and ‘male’ should be used when referring to the construction of a social identity.

    • Use single quotes throughout. Double quotes should only be used within single quotes. Spellings of words in quota­tions should not be changed. Quotations of 45 words or more should be separated from the text and indented with a line space above and below.

    • Use ‘nineteenth century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to nine, 10 and above to remain in figures. However, for exact measurements use only figures (3 km, 9 per cent not %). Use thousands and millions (e.g., not lakhs and crores).

    • Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently. Avoid excessive use of italics for emphasis, but use italics for book titles, journal names and foreign words.

    Permissions and releases: Material taken directly from a copyrighted source, including a website, should be clearly iden­tified, and the copyright holder’s written permission to reproduce it must be submitted in a separate file.

    Note: Obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material is the author’s responsibility, as is payment of any fees the copyright holder may request.

    Further information and a template Permission Request Letter is available in the Permissions section on SAGE’s Journal Author Gateway (http://www.sagepub.com/authors/ journal/permissions.sp)

    Identifiable images of people should be accompanied by a signed release granting permission for their likeness to be repro­duced in an article. (In children’s cases, the release form must be signed by a parent or guardian.)

    Citations and references: Guidelines specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition) must be followed.

    • A consolidated alphabetical list of all books, articles, essays and theses referred to (including any referred to in the tables, graphs and maps) in the text should be provided at the end of the article. References for tables and figures should accompany the table or figure. If more than one publication by the same author is listed, the items should be given in chronological order. References should be embedded in text in the author-date method of citation. For exam­ple: (Konhert, 2007, p. 12), (Kannabiran et al., 2008, pp. 175–200).
