It is with mixed emotions that I share the second issue of GLIMS Journal of Management Review and Transformation. While we are elated with the spectrum and relevance of research articles in the first and second issue, we are also deeply saddened by the passing on of Professor Bala, our founding Editor-in-Chief and our mentor. His vision and guidance in creating and developing this journal as a platform for research with business relevance, globally, is unparalleled. We were fortunate to receive his guidance in setting up of the journal and launching its first issue. The first issue has set the standards high for us to uphold. We are confident that with the foundation he has provided for us, we will continue to achieve the vision he held out for us. We know that we will continue to receive his blessings and wishes from the heavens above.
As the founding Managing Editor of this journal, I also take this opportunity to welcome aboard our new Editor-in-Chief, Professor Sudhakar Balachandran, from the University of Illinois Chicago. Professor Sudhakar brings with him a rich experience from both corporate and academia. Having worked in the corporate, he brings relevance to his research which the industry would find useful. He is a tenured professor with illustrious experience from leading business schools of Columbia University and University of Illinois Chicago. He is a widely cited researcher with publications in top journals including Management Science, Review of Accounting Studies and Contemporary Accounting Research. We would like to express our gratitude to Professor Sudhakar for accepting the role of the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. We are confident that under his guidance, the journal will continue to bring quality and relevant research to our readers from both academia and industry.
In the initial two issues, we have been able to curate a variety of research articles which, we are confident, will find significant relevance and resonance among the practitioners and academics alike. We remain committed to continue to serve the research community and look forward to contributions from fellow researchers.
