The mission statement of the College, signifying the existence and its road map to the achievement of its vision, reads as:
"To achieve and sustain excellence in teaching and research, and enriching local, national and international communities through our research, the skills of alumni, and the publishing of academic and educational materials"
To achieve and promote excellence in publications and applied research, the College has taken the initiative to launch a new journal exclusively to publish students' research papers and articles. It will be an add-on to the enriched catalogue of College publications and academic literature.
The journal has provided an opportunity to the students of our college to focus on research. Since the students were not opened to the research methodologies at the undergraduate level, they were mentored by experienced senior faculties of our College. Simultaneously, their articles were also reviewed by the referees and tested for plagiarism before publication. After reporting all the suggestions recommended by the referees, the articles were revised and then finally published. The College had successfully released the foundation issue of the Journal "STRIDES – A Students' Journal of Shri Ram College of Commerce, Volume 1, Issue 1, 2016-17" on the occasion of 91st Annual Day of College held on 13th April, 2017. The Journal was released by Shri Prakash Javadekar, Honb'le Minister of Human Resource Development, Government of India.
The college has already applied for seeking International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) for the Journal. The application for ISSN is still under process.
I would like to congratulate the students whose papers are published in this issue of the journal and simultaneously encourage all the students to contribute their research papers and articles for the successive issues of the Journal.
Best wishes for their future endeavor.
