(MENAFN- Colombo Gazette) Known for paving the way for professional excellence in the corporate world, SLIIT Business School recently proudly presented its first virtual issue of its first research journal, SLIIT Business Review, to a respected audience.

The SLIIT Business Review is published biannually and is a double-blind, refereed journal with the aim of serving faculties, researchers and practitioners in business administration and related disciplines as a platform for new knowledge, innovation, the use of technology and the application of the latest research tools in business and management. The SLIIT Business Review also seeks to fill the gaps between business theories and practices.

In addition to a book review, the articles in the opening edition June 2021 – Volume 01 – Issue 01 cover a range of topics such as human resources, finance, and the hospitality industry. Future editions will cover topics such as business management, accounting and finance, business analytics, human capital management, marketing management, logistics and supply chain management with an emphasis on theorising and practical modeling of problems in the business environment.

At the milestone event, Prof. Lakshman Rathnayake, Federal Chancellor, SLIIT presented the opening edition. Speaking at the event, Prof. Lalith Gamage, Vice Chancellor of SLIIT said: “Contribution to research is a compulsory part of an academic. As a university, we have to climb the rankings to be recognized as a world-class university, and for this transformation we need good publications from our university. We offer many forms of research support – research grants, the ability to collaborate with various industries, and support business relationships, in addition to partnerships with high-level universities around the world. I praise this initiative and the great commitment, as it gives students the opportunity to publish, gain experience and publish in good international magazines. “

The SLIIT Business Review will pursue an open access policy with the aim of sharing knowledge and scientific work freely accessible to researchers worldwide.

Addressing the participants, Prof. Rahula Attalage, Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research at SLIIT said: “I am very honored to attend the opening ceremony of the SLIIT Business Review, which marks another milestone in the research path of the SLIIT Business School. The SLIIT business launched today would help to promote the research culture not only in the business school, but throughout the institute, to create a rich research landscape and to position SLIIT against other competitors – locally and elsewhere. “

He added: “Research is a trailblazer to enable scientists to make relevant changes in the teaching and learning process, as well as the drive to engage in innovative interventions by academic staff and students for the benefit of society. Once again I congratulate the business school, the dean, the review editor, the contributors, the organizers and the academic staff on this iconic achievement. “
