Role of Editorial Board
The Editorial Board plays an important part in maintaining the quality of the cases published. The AIMA-ICRC editorial board members review the case leads, draft cases, provide guidance, direction and oversight on various sections of the case and teaching notes.
Editorial board members review is considered as the peer review of the manuscript. The detailed recommendations/suggestions provided by them help in improving the case and teaching note. The Editorial team validates the suitability of the manuscript for publication.
The India Case Research Centre regularly invites seasoned case writers/ professors from various functional areas, with proven competence and experience to be part of the Editorial Team.
The Managing Editor along with the production and publication team collates the reviewer panel’s insight and comments on a manuscript and shares it with case writer (authors). Based on the reviewers’ recommendation and suggestion adhered by the author, the Editorial board accepts or rejects the final manuscripts. The case manuscript and the case packs are uploaded and published by India Case Research Centre after due diligence.
