  • Submission Guidelines for Jindal Journal of Business Research

    Manuscript Submission: Manuscripts and all editorial correspondence should be addressed to: Professor Ganguly, Editor and Professor Gopinath, Editor-in-Chief, Jindal Journal of Business Research, Jindal Global Business School, O.P. Jindal Global University, Sonipat, Haryana 131001 (e-mail: jjbr@jgu.edu.in).

    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. If there are two or more authors, then the corresponding author’s name and address details must be specified clearly.

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

    • Authors will be provided with a copyright form once the contribution is accepted for publication. The submission will be considered as final only after the filled-in and signed copyright form is received.

    • Each figure and table must be cited in the text by number (e.g., see Table 1) and not placement (e.g., see table below). A heading, an explanatory caption and the source details must be provided for each table and figure.

    • 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. Each figure and table must be cited in the text by number (e.g., see Table 1) and not placement (e.g., see table below). A heading, an explanatory caption and the source details must be provided for each table and figure.

    • Black and white illustrations can also be supplied electronically at a resolution of at least 300 dpi and 1500 pixels, as .eps, .tif or .jpg files. They should be saved separately from the article file. All figures should have short descriptive captions and source details typed on a separate sheet. Due permissions should be taken for copyright protected photographs/images. Even for photographs/images available in the public domain, it should be clearly ascertained whether or not their reproduction requires permission for purposes of publishing (which is a profit-making endeavor).

    • 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 American spellings with serial comma (“program” not “programme”; “labor” not “labour”; “center” not “centre”; universal “ize” and “ization” of words). 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 double quotes throughout. Single quotes should only be used within double 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 percent not %). Use thousands and millions (e.g., not lakhs and crores).

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

    Citations and References: Guidelines specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition, 2009) must be followed.

    1. 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.

    •Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work. 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. If the work has more than six authors, list the first six authors and then use et al. after the sixth author’s name.

    •Chronological listing: If more than one work by the same author(s) is cited, they should be listed in order by the year of publication, starting with the earliest.

    •Sentence case: In references, sentence case (only the first word and any proper noun are capitalized – e.g., “The software industry in India”) is to be followed for the titles of papers, books, articles, etc.

    •Title case: In references, Journal titles are put in title case (first letter of all words except articles and conjunctions are capitalized – e.g., Journal of Business Ethics).

    •Italicize: Book and Journal titles are to be italicized.

    2. In text citations:

    • One work by one author: (Kessler, 2003, p. 50) or “Kessler (2003) found that among the epidemiological samples..”.

    • One work by two authors: (Joreskog & Sorborn, 2007, pp. 50–66) or Joreskog and Sorborn (2007) found that..

    • One work by three or more authors: (Basu, Banerji, & Chatterjee, 2007) [first instance]; Basu et al. (2007) [Second instance onwards].

    • Groups or organizations or universities: (University of Pittsburgh, 2007) or University of Pittsburgh (2007).

    • Authors with same surname: Include the initials in all the in-text citations even if the year of publication differs, e.g., (I. Light, 2006; M.A. Light, 2008).

    • Works with no identified author or anonymous author: Cite the first few words of the reference entry (title) and then the year, e.g., (“Study finds”, 2007); (Anonymous, 1998).

    If abbreviations are provided, then the style to be followed is: (National Institute of Mental Health [NIMH], 2003) in the first citation and (NIMH, 2003) in subsequent citations.
