AIM OF IJMET

International Journal of Management Entrepreneurship & Technology (IJMET) ISSN 2162-1578- A bi-annual International Management research online journal. The objective of this academic journal is dissemination of leading studies meticulously with practices, concepts and ideas in the key functional areas of management viz. marketing, finance, human resource, information technology, International business, Logistics, transportation, energy, environment, healthcare & hospital, retail, rural marketing, production & supply chain and other disciplines for researchers, students, educators, scholars, and practitioners. To this end IJMET invites research papers, abstracts of doctoral dissertations and major research project reports, case studies, book reviews and student articles from academicians, professional, students and Industrialist. IJMET is particularly interested in publishing innovative papers that start up or redirect a line of inquiry, integrate across disciplines rather than being single disciplinary, and are multi-level (micro, meso and/or macro) rather than single-level studies.

IJMET is a peer-reviewed journal and follows a 'double blind' review process. All papers submitted to IJMET go through a preliminary review at the editorial desk and those considered appropriate are sent to an Associate Editors. On the recommendation of the Associate Editors, the article may be rejected or assigned to two reviewers from the editorial board.

MAJOR PROCESS

The Editors reads every manuscript received and assigns it a general priority level:

(a) manuscripts sent to reviewers immediately; (b) manuscripts returned to authors with suggestions for the improvement of data presentation; and (c) rejected manuscripts will be returned/informed to the contributors.

PRIOR PUBLICATION

Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis); and will not be submitted for publication elsewhere while the manuscript is under review; and that its publication has been approved by all coauthors and the responsible authorities at the institute where the work was conducted. Submission also implies that the authors have already obtained all necessary permissions for the inclusion of copyrighted materials, such as figures and tables from other publications. Previously published work will not be considered for publication. Previously published portions of a paper must be accompanied by a permission release from the copyright holder and must be cited. Preprints, whether paper copies or non-citable postings on a publicly accessible Web site, are not considered publications, nor are poster presentations of work at a conference. An invited paper published in a non-peer-reviewed journal, however, would be considered a prior publication.

AUTHORSHIP

The Journal expects that all of the authors listed on a manuscript have contributed substantially to the submitted paper. By submission of the manuscript, cover letter, and declaration, the corresponding author affirms that all named authors have agreed to be listed as authors of the paper. Furthermore, all authors affirm that they have both read and approved the manuscript, and that they take responsibility for the content of the article.

REVIEW PROCESS

The IJMET Editors bears responsibility for insuring that submitted manuscripts receive expert and unbiased reviews. The Editors strives to complete the peer review of selected papers by the Associate Editors and the publication of accepted manuscripts in a timely manner and to keep the authors informed of any problems with their manuscript. All submitted manuscripts are initially evaluated by the Editors in consultation with members of the Editorial Board.

FULL DISCLOSURE OF MATERIALS

Authors are required to identify all materials and methods that were used in the study and described in the article. Authors should comply with reasonable requests for materials, methods, or data necessary to verify the conclusions of the experiments.

MISCONDUCT

In case of possible misconduct, i.e., suspected fabrication or falsification of data, double publication, or plagiarism, the Editorial committee members will attempt to clarify the matter with each of the authors through Editors. Should that fail to resolve the situation satisfactorily, the Editors will contact the institution of the corresponding author. The institution should then make an inquiry and report to the Editors. Until the matter is clarified, no papers by any authors on the disputed manuscript will be considered for publication. If the misconduct is confirmed by institutional review, the Editors will decide appropriate action.

EMBARGO POLICY

Authors or their representatives may mention to the press the title of the article, authors and their affiliations, date of publication, and citation information before publication/posting. We ask that authors refrain from publishing large quotes, substantial analysis, or reprinting figures, tables, or other data until the publication/posting date. These restrictions do not apply to the presentation of the work at conferences or symposia that precede the actual publication date. Violations of these policies are legitimate grounds for withdrawal of the manuscript from publication. All reviewers remain unknown to the authors. Every manuscript is treated by the Editors and reviewers as privileged information, and they are instructed to exclude themselves from review of any manuscript that might involve a conflict of interest or the appearance thereof.
