The ASCI Journal of Management (ISSN: 0257-8069) is a bi-annual journal, published every March and September by the Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI).

It is devoted to discussions on Policy and management issues concerning various aspects of national life. The papers published in the journal are based on research work, consulting and professional experience. The ASCI Journal of Management also publishes analytical reviews of literature on specific themes, research notes, short notes from practicing executives on issues and concerns of current interest, and book reviews.

Review Process:

The ASCI Journal of Management follows a policy of blind peer review. To facilitate this review, a separate title page should include the title of the paper, name(s) of the author(s) and relevant biographical information.

The second page should carry the title of the paper and a 100 to 150 word, single paragraph abstract of the paper.

Manuscript Submission:

Manuscripts of papers, notes should reach the Editor four months prior to the date of release of a particular issue as a word file attachment via email. The papers received for publication are sent to referees for their comments before a final decision is taken on their inclusion.

The article sent must be an original work, which has neither been previously published nor been submitted for publication elsewhere. It is in the author’s interest to submit a clearly written and carefully proofread manuscript.

Authors should disclose any potential conflict of interest regarding the manuscript.

Authors should avoid plagiarism and copyright-related offenses

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

It is very important to note that obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material is the author’s responsibility, as is payment of any fees the copyright holder may request.

Research Results:

Those papers that report the results of empirical research are expected to provide reliability estimates for all measures or give a thorough justification for their absence. When statistically significant relationships are reported, an estimate on the variance accounted for must be provided. When non-significant statistical tests are reported, an estimate of the power of the test must be given. Avoid graphs and analyses of variance summary tables, but include tables of means and standard deviations and/or correlation wherever needed. The tables should be numbered.
