Information for Authors

Authors will be scholars in business and management, but also in psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, and of course, religion. They will wish to develop the arena and support a dedicated publication of this genre or may have found it difficult to get their work published in mainstream or other specialized journals.

Any aspect of spirituality or religion affecting, shaping, engaging, or informing management and organising will be of interest to the Journal. Empirical as well as conceptual and theory-oriented articles and research notes will be considered. We also welcome case-studies; and reflections and observations, which should follow the academic paper format but may have a more personal reflexive style.


Submitting a Manuscript

Authors need to submit their manuscripts (in Word format) to the online ScholarOne submission system at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rmsr.

For detailed manuscript preparation and formatting guidelines, please download this document [PDF – 151 KB]. Please make sure all authors who contributed to the publication are named in the submission. Authors named in the submission should have made a significant contribution to the publication. Authorship may not normally change between the time a submission is made and its eventual publication. Any such change should be justified and gain the approval of the journal’s editor(s).

All submissions are subject to initial appraisal by the Editors, and if found suitable for further consideration, forwarded to double blind peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees.

JMSR joined the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) in 2010 and adheres to its ethical guidelines.

Authors are requested to declare a potential conflict of interest, such as research conducted on an organization employing them, or research funded by an institution mentioned in the submission.

The use of generative AI in manuscripts

When using generative artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process, authors should only use these technologies to improve readability and language.

Authors need to carefully review and edit as authors are ultimately responsible and accountable for the contents of the work. These AI technologies cannot be attributed in authorship.

Disclosure instructions

The use of generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process must be disclosed by adding a statement at the end of the manuscript before the References list. The statement should be placed in a new section entitled ‘Declaration of Generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process’.

Statement: The author(s) used [NAME TOOL / SERVICE] in order to [REASON]. The author(s) reviewed and edited the content as needed and take(s) full responsibility for the content of the publication.

This declaration does not apply to the use of basic tools for checking grammar, spelling, references etc. If there is nothing to disclose, there is no need to add a statement. Nor does it refer to AI tools used to analyze and draw insights from data as part of the research process.

Submission and reviewing are free of charge.
