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. -- Mohan Thite, PhD Editor-in-Chief, South Asian Journal of HRM (forthcoming, June 2014) Associate Professor in HRM Griffith Business School, Griffith University Brisbane, Australia Ph: +61 7 3735 7643 Fax: +61 7 3735 7177 Email: [log in to unmask] http://www.griffith.edu.au/professional-page/mohan-thite ____ AIB-L is brought to you by the Academy of International Business.
