Abstract: I have the pleasure of introducing the first issue of ‘Decision’ for 2017. The journal saw impressive growth in the year 2016 with the number of manuscript submissions on the increase and the manuscript acceptance rate dropping to below 20%. This Volume 44, Issue 1 as usual brings together a wide range of research articles. For the year 2017, in addition to the three regular issues, we have dedicated the June issue as a Special Issue on ‘Urban Management in Developing Economies: Challenges for Public Policy’ that focusses on the challenge for urbanization and urban policies in developing countries, and the need to make them smart, sustainable and socially inclusive. Finally, the issue is completed with an interesting book review of Imrana Qadeer’s edited book: ‘India social development report 2014: challenges of public health’ (Oxford University Press, New Delhi, 2015) by Manish Thakur. I wish to put on record our deep gratitude and acknowledge the significant contribution of all the anonymous reviewers who helped maintain the quality of the journal and the Editors on putting together the four issues of 2016.
