Jharkhand Journal of Development and Management Studies

Jharkhand Journal of Development and Management Studies (ISSN 0973-8444; NAAS Rating: 3.23) is published quarterly for private circulation on the 15th of March, June, September and December every year by the Xavier Institute of Social Service. The inaugural issue “Jharkhand Development”, was published on “State’s Second Foundation Day – 15 November, 2002”.

JJDMS is a multi-disciplinary quarterly and thematic Journal of development and management studies. It welcomes research articles on development and management at global, national, and regional context. Keeping the people at the centre, it seeks to explore ways of improving their standard of living by examining potential solutions to poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, disease, hunger, food security, environment degradation, displacement, ethnic and gender discrimination, civil conflicts, and the like.

Each issue focuses on a specific theme. Authors can write papers from global or local perspectives. Papers can be theoretical as well as empirical. Each paper should come up with policy implication. JJDMS also publishes review papers, executive experiences, case studies, and book reviews.

The justification of the publication of ‘JJDMS’ through XISS is further concerned with an aim to provide to young professionals, academicians, and policy–makers the raw materials for the study of social processes and to reveal intended and un-intended consequences of specific social action to the common man by ‘putting the last first’. This may add to the documentation on the nature and impact of social action of XISS in the specific time and space dimension. The materials thus, used in this Journal may be valuable to the NGOs and the government of Jharkhand seeking solution to social problems of their own predicament in the different geographical area.
