The overarching purpose of the Journal is to create a community of scholars in the field of Rural Management. It does so by acting as a vehicle that promotes scholarship and disseminates knowledge. Anything rural is of interest; however, the Journal has an avowed bias towards matters of policy, institutions, organizations and practices. The journal publishes conceptual, empirical and review papers in the form of research articles, reports of research in progress, analyses of current and topical practice, policy issues relating to rural management, and book reviews.
IJRM is a refereed journal. It practices double-blind reviews.
The Journal is an initiative of the Institute of Rural Management (IRMA), and is published by Sage India http://www.sagepub.in
