    1. Manuscripts and all editorial correspondence should be addressed to: The Editor, Management and Labour Studies, XLRI Jamshedpur, School of Business & Human Resources, C.H. Area (East) Jamshedpur 831035. E-mail: pitabasm@xlri.ac.in; mlseditor@xlri.ac.in

    2. Articles should be written in MS Word, Times New Roman font, and should be submitted in hard copy as well as in soft copy, identical in every respect. Manuscripts should not exceed 15,000 words and should be submitted in duplicate with the cover page bearing only the title of the article, author/s’ names, designations, official addresses, phone/fax numbers, and email addresses. Author/s’ name should not appear on any other page.

    3. All articles must be accompanied by an abstract of 150–200 words and 4–6 keywords.

    4. Use British spellings in all cases rather than American spellings (hence, ‘programme’ not ‘pro­gram’, ‘labour’ not ‘labor’, and ‘centre’ and not ‘center’).

    5. Use ‘z’ spellings instead of ‘s’ spellings. This means that words ending with ‘-ise’, ‘isation’, etc., will be spelt with ‘z’ (e.g., ‘recognize’, ‘organize’, ‘civilize’).

    6. Use single quotes throughout. Double quotes only to 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 one space with a line space above and below. Notes should be numbered serially and presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference.

    7. Use ‘twentieth 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, not lakhs and crores.

    8. Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently.

    9. Tables and figures to be indicated by numbers separately (see Table 1), not by placement (see Table below). Present each table and figure on a separate sheet of paper, gathering them together at the end of the article. All Figures and Tables should be cited in the text. Sources for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.

    10. A consolidated listing of all books, articles, essays, theses and documents referred to (including any referred to in the tables, graphs and maps) should be provided at the end of the article. Guidelines specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition) must be followed.

    Inverted names: In each reference, authors’ names are inverted (last name first) for all authors (first, second or subsequent ones); give the last name and initials for all authors of a particular work unless the work has more than six authors.

    Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work.

    Chronological listing: If you have more than one work by the same author(s), list them in order by the
