Abstract: On behalf of the Editorial Board of Decision, I am glad to inform that our journal has been included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). The indexing is done by Thomson Reuter (Clarivate Analytics). We shall now proceed toward obtaining impact factor for the journal. The September 2017 issue (Issue 3) brings you a bouquet of research articles analyzing and addressing different aspects of management problems. The research article by Singh and Hira titled “Exploring notion of Spirituality using Grounded Theory: Young adult’s perspective” attempts to capture the notion of spirituality based on the assumption that one’s formative stage of understanding impacts a person’s value system. Data have been coded and categorized to understand the notion of “Spirituality” from the perspective of young adults—budding future corporate managers. Bharadwaj and Mehta’s paper on “Annihilating or perpetuating the gender stereotype? An analysis of Indian television advertisements” examines the construction of gender roles in recent Indian television commercials that depict Indian woman essaying supervisory roles in their corporate jobs. Through in-depth interviews of young corporate women, the study attempts to find out whether these advertisements really act as harbingers of mutation in gender discourse or reinforce the same archetypal gender roles under the garb of liberatory postmodernist feminist mediations.
