Journal Club at Dr. V. N. Bedekar Institute of Management Studies Thane College

Dr. V. N. Bedekar Institute of Management Studies Thane College

Journal Club

The Journal Club is the brainchild and grand idea of Dr. Vijay V. Bedekar, Chairman (VPM, Thane). The Journal Club was initiated in 2008 to provide a platform to the faculty members of DR VN BRIMS to exchange ideas and views on areas of common and lateral interests. Each presentation at the Journal Club meeting usually lasts for about fifteen minutes followed by a question and answer session for about ten minutes; all faculty members are cordially requested to be present for the entire duration of the meeting. To date, many Journal Club meetings have been organized at DR VN BRIMS and the faculty members have greatly benefited through the intellectual discussions, research inputs and awareness of ongoing research practices in different functional areas of management viz. Finance, Marketing, Operations, Human Resources, et al. This forum has brought to fore many research themes that the faculty members are utilizing in their academic work or developing further into knowledge assets for dissemination to pertinent stakeholders.

The Journal Club not only contributes towards faculty development and creation of intellectually stimulating environment at DR VN BRIMS but also provides the impetus for achieving the larger goal of being actively involved in building a knowledge society.
