President’s Message

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to the website of Association for Research in Social Sciences, Commerce and Management (ARISCOM). We are an emerging research organization based in Ranchi and are focused in creating, promoting, sharing and disseminating knowledge, research outputs and the prevailing best practices in the broader disciplines of social sciences, commerce and management. Our Association remains committed in its mission to “foster greater appreciation for academic research, create opportunities for new learning and enhance employability of youth through skill and competency development programmes… in the wider quest for sustainability and innovative societal excellence.”

ARISCOM is a Not-for-Profit Society registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI, 1860 of the Govt. of Jharkhand, India. We fund our activities through individual contributions, membership fees, conference participation fees, journal publication fees, donations and grants from individuals, organisations and government departments.

Our membership is interdisciplinary as well as higher-education specific. We invite individual memberships from academicians, research scholars, students, corporate executives and professionals, public servants and institutional memberships from schools, colleges, universities, private and public sector organisations and government departments. ARISCOM Members connect through seminars and conferences, as well as through frequent knowledge-sharing meetings to engage in conversation and to collaborate on research.

Over the coming years we intend to expand the range of activities available to our members and wish to encourage productive debate and action in improving the quality of life of our people, and the general well-being of our society and nation. I am sure that ARISCOM shall emerge to be an important forum and voice for all who have interests and concerns about trends and issues in social sciences, commerce and management in India.

I invite you to get involved with us and join us in our activities through membership of our Association and participation in our conferences and other special events announced from time to time. I must say that I harbour a great sense of optimism that ARISCOM will emerge to be a frontier association of likeminded people, contributing in a significant way in bringing us all together in creating a better world for our future generations.

With all good wishes,

Prof. Dr. L. N. Bhagat
