ABOUT JOURNAL                 ^TOP

CRRID has been publishing Man & Development, its official quarterly journal, since May 1979 when the first issue was released by the then President of Republic of India His Excellency Mr. N. Sanjeeva Reddy. The journal has set itself the ambitious task of critically examining and analysing the entire complex processes of our political, social, economic and cultural transformation. Since India represents an ancient society and civilization, it is equally interested in analyzing the validity or otherwise of past heritage in relation to present concerns. Finally, it sees the processes of change and transformation of India in the wider context of a changing world. These being the concerns, the journal invites articles bearing on one or the other aspect of the transformation processes, both at the micro and at the macro level.

Man and Development is published in March, June, September and December. Currently, around 700 copies of the journal find their way to libraries and organizations in home and abroad, out of which 20 copies are exchanged with the similar journals of repute. In past, Man and Development has received articles from a wider section of scholars, thinkers, entrepreneurs, administrators, and policy as well as decision makers. The journal is abstracted and indexed by Guide to Indian Periodicals Literature, Gurgaon and Institute for Studies in Industrial Development (ISID) Index Series, New Delhi, ICSSR journal of Abstracts and Reviews in sociology and social Anthropology, New Delhi.
