From the Desk of the Vice-Chancellor
It is my pleasure to state that the School of Professional Studies (SPS), Netaji Subhas Open University has taken initiative to publish a scholarly interdisciplinary online journal – NSOU OPEN JOURNAL. It marks the beginning of the University to reach the global academic fraternity. The School of Professional Studies of the University always takes innovative initiatives for the development of research and advancement of knowledge in the related field through seminars, conferences/ workshops. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate my colleagues at SPS, NSOU for this unique academic endeavour for publishing the online journal.

I am sure that the NSOU OPEN JOURNAL would give a platform to the researchers/ practitioners to exchange their views, ideas and thoughts on the contemporary issues of interdisciplinary areas in the field of commerce, management, education, library and information science, social work etc. in days to come.

I express my best wishes to this scholarly effort.
