The Research and Postgraduate Centre invites submission of papers to a JSR-MRU special issue that focuses on advancing interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research at MRU that is socially oriented; e.g. scholars from social sciences, business and management research, education, engineering, ICT, behavioral change studies, who are willing to combine strong theoretical underpinnings and empirical evidence. This journal’s special issue encourages Interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary work, which crosses disciplinary boundaries. Note that a “Discipline delineates the boundaries of intellectual community, the distinctive practices and methodologies of particular areas of rigorous and concentrated intellectual effort, and the varying frames of reference used to interpret the world.”
The JSR-MRU encourages research publication from academicians, professionals and students engaged in their respective field or working across disciplines. The journal also provides a Monthly Research Seminar Series for authors to disseminate their knowledge.
The JSR-MRU supports the University vision of “responding to contemporary challenges through training, research, and technical guidance”. This journal is one of the initiatives geared towards achievement of the objectives of the Research and Postgraduate Centre.
