The success of any journal depends upon the quality of manuscript it receives for review. It is our pleasure to inform our stakeholders that the launch of first issue of International Journal of Business Research and Excellence (IJBRE) generated sufficient curiosity amongst the research circles and that reflected in submission of manuscripts. The second issue of International Journal of Business Research and Excellence was a discussion on contemporary challenges faced by emerging markets or economies like India and providing a view point on unprecedented developments of the past in the field of business management. In both the cases the authors made an effort to substantiate their argument with micro and macro level data and suitably guide readers with further scope of research. The communication of comments of blind review process of IJBRE reviewers not only assist authors in quality writing but also promote quality research in the field of business management.
