SAJHRM: Aims & Scope

SAJHRM is a peer-reviewed scholarly outlet for publications on HRM in and
out of South Asia. It includes countries that are members of the South Asian
Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), namely, Afghanistan,
Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. In
terms of the discipline focus, all articles broadly focusing on the theory
and practice of managing human resources for the benefit of individuals,
firms and community at large will be acceptable.


In view of the contemporary focus on Strategic HRM, the journal coverage
would also include comparative research and other related management
disciplines as long as one of the key aims of the manuscript is on
harnessing the potential of human capital. Considering the uneven economic
development within the South Asian region, the journal encourages potential
authors to explore broader implications of their scholarly views and
findings on the region as a whole.


A distinguishing feature of the journal is its focus on “HR in Practice”.
Apart from theory, it will pay significant attention on how HRM is practiced
in and out of South Asia. The journal features conceptual and empirical
research papers, research notes, interviews, case studies and book reviews.
In short, to be considered for publication, a manuscript should broadly
focus on managing people and contextualised within one or more South Asian
countries at the firm, regional, national and international levels.
