Articles published in the journal range from experimental and theoretical manuscripts to innovative empirical studies, all of which are welcome as contributions to the journal. The journal follows stringent double blind peer review policy to maintain the publication quality with an acceptance rate of 25% submitted manuscripts.
Since this year the journal has adopted online submission and manuscript tracking system which enables authors to monitor the real time progress of his/her manuscript/s and for editors/reviewers it allows them to provide their recommendations. The journal is also providing a broader space to the articles published by constantly posting them on various professional and social media platforms like, Linkedin, Twitter and Facebbok. We are also providing our Whatsapp contacts to connect our contributors and collaborators in more effective and timely manner.
The journal has achieved this prestigious stage in the domain only because of the constant support of Board Members and intellectual generosity of the readers and contributors. We utilize this opportunity to express our gratitude towards our learned and active editorial and reviewer board members for their constant support and keeping the journal standard at higher. Over two decades of publishing journey our learned board members have handled the hundreds of manuscripts in a very time effective manner. Gradually the journal has significantly expanded its reviewer board with the help of our editorial board which eventually reduced average turnaround times. All the manuscripts submitted to the journal now have minimum two expert reviews and their quality has been progressively taming.
The journal wishes to encourage scholarly contributions on any of the topics mentioned above in management and decision sciences.
The Editor-in-Chief and editorial staff of Journal of Management Information and Decision Science at Allied Business Academies look forward to working with potential authors, for which the editorial process would be handled efficiently and in a timely manner.
