i) Perspectives: Research-based papers addressing important issues and challenges concerning the identified domain with socio-economic relevance.
ii) Research Paper: The research papers are based on original empirical or conceptual research on emerging trends in India and the global context. It is based on primary and/or secondary research.
iii) Case Study: The case study and analysis is based on issues and initiatives taken up by academicians and practitioners, and are on specific problems or issues of business success or failure.
