INTRODUCTION Program Objectives IIM Raipur started the Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) from academic year 2012-13. FPM is a full-time doctoral programme that offers students opportunities for advanced studies and research in different areas of ‘management’. The Programme aims to prepare students for careers in teaching and research in management studies and in related disciplines, and for careers in other organizations that require advanced analytical and research capabilities. The program provides students with necessary skills to identify and research complex issues in the field of management and disseminate their findings into publications of international standards. Following areas of specialization are available at IIM Raipur: o Business Policy and Strategy o Economics and Business Environment o Finance and Accounting o Marketing o Operations Management o Organisational Behaviour & HRM o IT & Systems Program Structure The fellow programme at IIM Raipur has the following four components: a. Mandatory Course Work b. Comprehensive Examination c. Thesis Proposal Formulation d. Thesis Submission and Defense Mandatory Course Work During first year of the programme the students acquire knowledge of the discipline and functional areas of management and general management. The FPM students, irrespective of their area of specialization, take a compulsory set of courses in the first year. At the end of the first year, they undergo a summer placement/summer research assignment under the advice/guidance of his/her Academic Advisor. The FPM students who already have a one/two/three-year full-time classroom based PGDM/PGP from any of the IIMs or MBA from IITs or MBA /PGDM from Universities / Institutes with International accreditation would be exempted from the first year course work including the summer work provided they have obtained a minimum CGPA of 6 on a 10-point scale or an equivalent 3.0 in 4.0-point scale and the corresponding letter grade `B’. They will directly enter into the second year. However, they will have to take the FPM compulsory courses (offered in the first year) along with their second year course work. In addition, the sentient area may recommend additional first year courses for FPM candidates in the exempted category, if area members feel that the candidate(s) requires additional inputs in the core discipline. During second year of the programme the students acquire in-depth knowledge of the area of specialization and related fields. In addition, students take the PGP/FPM elective courses, which are specially designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the area of their research as well as to develop teaching skills. Comprehensive Examination On completion of the second year course work, the student takes the comprehensive examination. The comprehensive examination at the end of the 2nd year, tests whether the student has obtained a satisfactory level of knowledge in his/her field of specialization and whether s/he has satisfactorily integrated the various courses taken by him/her in the area. While the course work formally gets over with the completion of Comprehensive Examination, students are encouraged to continue taking advanced courses of interest even further into their research work.

Thesis Proposal Formulation After passing the comprehensive examination, the student enters the thesis writing stage. The student first develops a thesis proposal, for which s/he identifies a research topic, identifies the members of the Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC), gives a seminar on the thesis proposal to IIM Raipur’s academic community, and gets the thesis proposal approved by the TAC. Thesis Submission and Defense On approval of the thesis proposal, the student works closely with the TAC on his/her thesis work. When the candidate’s supervisor judges that the thesis is complete, the student gives a seminar on the thesis work and subsequently defends the thesis orally before a thesis examination committee. The Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) appoints the thesis examination committee comprising the thesis advisor and other members. Program Duration FPM is a full time residential programme. The student is expected to complete the programme in four years. Under special circumstances, extension may be granted to the student. In any case the entire program should finish within six years. If a student fails to complete the requisite academic works for the Fellow Programme within this specified period, then s/he has to withdraw from the programme. The student’s registration will be terminated on the completion of six years. Students are not permitted to take up employment / outside assignment during the programme. If violated, suitable disciplinary action including expulsion from the programme would be initiated by the FPM Committee. In case, wherein the student likes to extend his/her stay for one more year in order to complete his/her thesis work, a request has to be made by the student through TAC to the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) for a maximum of one more year of stay. Title After completion of all requirements of the programme, the student is awarded the title of the “Fellow of the Indian Institute of Management Raipur”. Other Issues The respective areas are responsible for the monitoring of the FPM students enrolled in the area. This includes issues such as periodic performance appraisal, continuation of the fellowship, scholarship, and comprehensive examination. The decision of the institute (Director) in matters of interpretation of the rules will be final and binding on all concerned.

COURSE WORK Objectives During the first year of the programme the students are expected to acquire proficiency in general management. The second year of the programme is meant for acquiring in-depth knowledge of the area of specialization and related fields. First Year FPM students will have to take an equivalent of 18 courses (54 Credits) in the first year1. These courses are divided as follows: o Twelve Courses from PGP courses offered in the first year to PGP students. Each area should come up with the list of these twelve courses to be undertaken by the students in their area. The courses can be spread over the three terms of the first year. o Four courses from compulsory FPM courses which will be mandatory for all the areas. These courses will comprise: - Pedagogy (1 Course) - Academic and Professional Writing (0.5 Course) - Communication for Management Teachers (0.5 Course) - Philosophy / Foundation of Management /Business History (1 Course) - Advanced Research Methodology (1 Course) o Two courses will be in the form of Summer Internship / Guided Research Project. The area can recommend the students to either take up 8-10 weeks of summer internship or a guided research project under a faculty member (as academic advisor) from the sentient area. The summer internship / research report, duly signed by the academic advisor (AA), must be submitted to the Fellow Programmes Office by 1st June of the First Year. The FPM students who already have a one/two/three-year full-time classroom based PGDM/PGP from any of the IIMs or MBA from IITs or MBA /PGDM from Universities / Institutes with International accreditation2 would be exempted from the first year course work including the summer work provided they have obtained a minimum CGPA of 6 on a 10-point scale or an equivalent 3.0 in 4.0-point scale and the corresponding letter grade `B’. They will directly enter into the second year and will have to take additional FPM compulsory courses (offered in the first year for regular students) during their second year itself. Second Year FPM students will have to take an equivalent of 12 courses (36 Credits) in the second year. These courses are divided as follows: o Four Courses from PGP Elective courses from within the Area or Related Area o Six FPM Level Courses - Two Advanced Research Courses - 2-3 Area FPM Level Courses - 1-2 Related Area FPM Level Courses o Two Courses in the form of the course of independent study (CIS) which will be spread over second and third term.

other university / institution. Such university / institute much carry International Accreditation (such as AACSB, AMBA, EFMD). If such a request is approved, the student is granted Course-work Leave. In every such case, the student is required to take the Area Comprehensive Exam along with other students as per schedule. If the students avail of financial support such as a fellowship/scholarship from that university, they are not entitled to the FPM stipend from IIM Raipur for the period of such financial support, unless the financial support extended by the host institution is lower than IIM Raipur’s fellowship, in which case, the shortfall in the stipend will be paid. In addition, for this purpose, annual contingency grant will be counted as part of the stipend. Such students continue to be eligible for conference support. Course of Independent Study The objective of having a Course of Independent Study (CIS) Report is to allow the Scholars to organize and report the learnings gained in an in depth systematic literature review undertaken in their field of Research. The Course of Independent Study (CIS) Report should be a substantive contribution to the scholar’s knowledge as well as to his research topic through integration of various literature sources in the domain. However, the CIS work may vary from one academic advisor to another academic advisor. The purpose of CIS is to help a scholar narrow down his area of interest and help him create a base for finalising the topic of his / her thesis proposal. It is pertinent to note that the Course of Independent Study (CIS) Report represents a visible concrete output and would, therefore, have demonstrable potential enabling individuals to pursue further work on the theme. The CIS work will be evaluated by the CIS Advisor himself/herself and another two faculty members to be nominated by the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) in consultation with the student’s CIS Advisor. In case of unsatisfactory performance in the CIS work, the student would be given one more chance to submit his/her CIS work within one month for re-evaluation from the date of first evaluation. A copy of the final report should be submitted to Fellow Programmes Office. Third and Fourth Year The students will clear the Comprehensive Examination (CE) and work under the Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC) on a research topic. Some pointers for the third and fourth year are as follows: o The student should present the thesis proposal before the faculty community in third year after the comprehensive exam. The student should present their thesis proposal maximally by the end of third year. o The student will have to submit six-monthly progress reports duly attested by the TAC all through third and fourth year. o The student should ideally give the final thesis seminar before the end of 2nd trimester of fourth year. All exceptions from the proposed plan/ requests for extension will have to be submitted through the TAC for approval of the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes). Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) would normally approve extensions; if the extensions are recommended strongly by the TAC. o For extension requests beyond the fourth year, the candidate would be required to make the presentation of the thesis/ work-in-progress before the TAC. The TAC will give the feedback for incorporation into the thesis. Extensions should be sought only during the seminar, with a clear plan of action for completion. Transfer from One Area to Another After joining the FPM programme, a student may apply by December 15th of the first year for change of the area of specialization if s/he so desires. Following conditions need to be fulfilled for change of area: o The student must obtain CGPA ≥8.5 by the end of Term II to be considered for change of area. o The student must obtain the consent from the original area of specialization as well as the destination area. o A student cannot take transfer into an area to which s/he was originally rejected during FPM interview. o The student must additionally take first year courses as prescribed by the destination area but not covered by the original area in the second year. FPM Manual 2017 | Indian Institute of Management Raipur

Academic Advisor Before the end of Term III of the first year, sentient area, in consultation with the student, will designate Academic Advisor (AA) for each FPM student. The student should submit Faculty Advisor Appointment Form (Annexure II) duly signed by the AA to the Fellow Programmes Office. o All students have to consult their AA for all academic matters relating to their elective courses, summer projects, CE and Dissertation, if any, until they successfully completed Comprehensive Examination. o AA will recommend whether a student at the end of Term III will undergo summer training in an organization or conduct guided research at the Institute. If the student doesn’t undergo summer training in an organization, AA has the primary responsibility of guiding the student for summer research. If the AA is unable to guide the student during summers, s/he may recommend the name of another faculty colleague from the area to the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) latest by April 15th of the first year. o All FPM students have to finalise their second year electives in consultation with their respective AA o The responsibilities of AA continue until his/her student successfully completes CIS and Comprehensive Examination (CE). o AAs are expected to serve as one of the three members of the Comprehensive Examination Committee and Thesis Advisory Committee of their respective student.

Completion of Course Work Students must finish all requirements of the courses within the term in which the courses are offered. Second year students must complete their CIS requirements before they are allowed to appear for the comprehensive examination. Course work completion refers to two years of course work including successful completion of CIS and Comprehensive Examination. Research and Teaching Assistantship FPM students should provide a mandatory Research and Teaching Assistant services during the doctoral program. The objective of research and teaching assistantship is to equip the student with necessary research and teaching skills as well as to help them identify the theme within their area they would want to work in. Students will provide Research Assistantship during the first two years of their program and Teaching Assistantship after completion of their comprehensive examination. o During the first and second year, the student should work as a research assistant under different faculty members of his/her area. A student can work as a research assistant for a maximum of two terms during a year. A student will provide research assistantship to a faculty member upto 10 hours per week. o During the third and fourth year, after completion of the comprehensive examination, a student should provide teaching assistantship to faculty members from within his/her area. Faculty members who need teaching assistants are allocated the same by the Area Chair depending upon the students available within the area. o Teaching Assistance services may comprise Course Curriculum Design and Development, Classroom Participation Assessment, Research, and Course Evaluation Assistance etc. o A log of working hours will be maintained by the student himself / herself and be duly signed by the faculty member to whom he/she is assigned to as a research / teaching assistant. The unutilized component of number of hours for research / teaching assistantship will lapse within that week. o A student can take upto 10 teaching sessions during the fourth year as facilitated by the sentient area. However, they cannot take more than 2 sessions for any course.

Academic Performance and Evaluation System The evaluation of academic performance is based on varying combinations of the following components: a. Assignments, Quizzes, Class participation etc. b. Project Work and or term paper(s) c. Mid-term Examination d. Term-end Examination While components (c) and (d) are mandatory for a full PGP level course, relative weights of the components for a specific course will be at the discretion of the instructor. For FPM level courses, the evaluation scheme and the weights for each component in the scheme vary from course to course. However, written examination/s with minimum weight of 50% is compulsory for all the courses. The course instructor has the option to choose the mode of written examination. It could be classroom, open-book/closed-book or take-home examination /assignment. The evaluation schemes for every course are conveyed to the students at the beginning of the course along with the course outline. Attendance is must for Mid and End Term examinations for each student in each term, failing which he/she will be debarred from the registration for next term. Such students are required to continue from that term along with next batch. For each component of evaluation, the faculty member will communicate the performance of students through marks only. At the end of the course, the faculty member will aggregate on all the components of evaluation using the weights he has prescribed in the course outline. He shall compute the weighted cumulative marks and give the appropriate grade. Numeric score for individual components along with class distribution of scores may be communicated to the students. IIM Raipur follows a system of continuous evaluation. Throughout the term, the student will be tested on his/her ability to understand concepts, learn techniques and apply them to problems in the real world. At each stage of the course, the student would be in a position to assess his/her performance and take measures to make improvements. Grading System A ten-point grading scale with corresponding letter grades as follows is used:

Description

*Absent in Mid-Term/End Term The Term Grade Point Average (TGPA) are calculated by computing the sum of grade points in respective courses multiplied by their respective credits, and dividing it by the total credits for all courses in the term. Similarly, the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is calculated at the end of each term as a composite index of the academic performance of the student up to that stage in the Programme. TGPA is an indicator of student performance for a term, whereas CGPA is an indicator of student performance up to a term. “In the case of a student obtaining ‘I’ Grade, he/she shall be required to repeat that component in that course before Mid-Term Examination of the subsequent term. If the reason for absence for Mid / End Term examination FPM Manual 2017 | Indian Institute of Management Raipur

13

does not come under Medical/exigencies, a loss of two grades will be imposed after re-examination result. If the student is unable to appear for the re-examination on the said due date, he/she will be awarded ‘F’ Grade.” IIM Raipur follows a system of relative grading. This implies that the grade received by a student is relative to the grades obtained by the class as a whole. It is therefore not uncommon to find a case where a student obtains a grade of B for obtaining 75% marks; since, the class average was around 73% marks. However, faculty members may prescribe some absolute limits to award grades as well. For example, he/she may fix 30% marks as minimum marks for obtaining a pass grade. In each course, a student is thus awarded a letter grade only. The weighted average for all courses taken by a student in the programme is called the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). Please note that the weights used to compute CGPA are the number of credit hours for a course. Academic Criteria for the Course Work A student must satisfy the following conditions at the end of the third term of the first year to be eligible for promotion to second year of FPM: a. A minimum of GPA of 4.5 in each Term b. A minimum CGPA of 5.0 c. Not more than 2-Ds or 1 F in the First Year The second year’s passing requirements are as follows: a. A minimum CGPA of 5.0 b. A minimum GPA of 5.5 in the area specific courses at the end of second year c. Not more than 2-Ds in the Second Year. Students are advised to obtain their answer sheets from the Fellow Programmes Office Programme Assistant/concerned faculty and seek clarifications (if any) from the faculty. The FPM/PGP Office will display online the grades obtained by all the students in a particular term three weeks after the end of the term. The notice will be displayed for 3 days during which students can verify the accuracy of the grades. After this period the grades will be finalised and informed to the students. After the grade sheets are finalised by the Fellow Programmes Office, no request for re-evaluation or change in grade will be entertained. Each student is expected to attend a minimum of 80% of classes in each course (i.e. in a 3 credit course, 16 classes out of 20) to avoid grade-drop penalty. The grade penalty will be imposed on all the students who do not meet the minimum 80% attendance requirements in each course in the following manner. Attendance of Student (%) Grade Penalty More than or equal to 70% but less than 80% One grade drop (e.g. from A+ to A) More than or equal to 60% but less than 70%

Two grade drop (e.g. from A+ to A-)

More than or equal to 50% but less than 60%

Three grade drop (e.g. from A+ to B+)

Less than 50%

F grade will be awarded

Thus, out of a total of 20 sessions in a course, if a student is absent for 13 classes or more, the students in such cases may be debarred from giving exams for that particular course and be given an F grade. The scholars who do not fulfil the academic requirements of the programme within the stipulated time, the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes)/FPM Committee may review the situation and may cancel the registration of the scholar in consultation with the CIS Advisor. The scholar whose registration has been cancelled on any grounds may file an appeal to the Director who in consultation with the faculty council may reconsider his /her case and take decision accordingly. The decision of the Director on such appeal will be final & binding. FPM Manual 2017 | Indian Institute of Management Raipur

COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION Objective The objective of the Comprehensive Examination (CE) at the end of the second year is to test whether the student has obtained a satisfactory level of comprehension and application of the concepts learned in his/her field of specialization. The CE is not to test knowledge of a discrete collection of topics in the area. The comprehensive examination consists of a test covering the student’s major area. The students are required to appear for the CE on completion of the required course work, including CIS. Ideally, a student should complete his/her course work including CIS by the month of April of the second year and prepare for the CE. The Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) informs different Area Chairpersons about the names of the students who have completed their course work and are required to appear for the CE. Comprehensive Examination The Area decides upon the format of the comprehensive examination for each student in their area. The same could be offered as a written examination or a review of a few important papers or a term paper on specific topic or any other format as decided upon by the area. The candidate should finally appear for an oral examination in front of the Area Comprehensive Examination Committee. Area Comprehensive Examination Committee The Chairperson (Fellow Programmes), in consultation with the student’s academic advisor (AA) appoints the Area Comprehensive Examination Committee (ACEC). The committee consists of the academic advisor (as Chairperson of the ACEC), two other members (area / related area / one external). The external member, if any, can be invited through skype, if he/she is in a different location. In order to pass the CE, at least two of the ACEC members should declare the student’s performance as satisfactory. If multiple number of students in an area take CE in the same year, same / separate ACEC can be formed for each student with the respective AA as the Chairperson of the ACEC. Grading of the Comprehensive Examination The oral portion of the comprehensive examination would be graded as Pass | Fail. A grade ‘Pass’ signifies the minimal acceptable performance expected from a FPM student. A ‘Fail’ indicates that the answer is not up to the standards expected from our FPM students. Time Limit for Comprehensive Examination The student must appear for the Comprehensive Examination by the end of June after completing the course work phase, failing which his/her monthly stipend will be withheld from the month of July. Under special circumstances, the date of CE may be extended by up to a maximum of 3 months upon prior application from the student and recommended by the sentient area through AA. In case of unsatisfactory performance in the CE, one reexamination is permitted. But it must be taken by the student within 3 months of the first CE. If the students clear CE in the second attempt, the withheld stipend will be released. If the students fail to clear CE in the second attempt also, he will have to withdraw from the program.

THESIS WORK Objective The thesis should be a scholarly contribution to the knowledge pertinent to the understanding and resolution of management problems. The student should demonstrate professional competence in developing a model or a set of hypotheses, collecting and interpreting data, reaching conclusions, and drawing the implications for research and managerial practice. Thesis Advisory Committee Within one month from the date of passing the comprehensive examination, the student must identify a Thesis Advisor who will guide him/her as Chairperson in his/her Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC). This should be communicated to the Fellow Programmes Office in writing along with the consent of the concerned faculty member. The Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) appoints the TAC in consultation with the student and the thesis advisor. A student must propose his/her TAC within three months of passing his/her comprehensive examination. A faculty member can be a TAC Chair for a maximum of four FPM candidates at any given point of time. The TAC will consist of three members, including the thesis advisor, at least two of which, must be from the student's area of specialization. The members are chosen to contribute to the thesis research in a complementary manner and to provide help in literature search, research design, model construction, fieldwork, and data analysis. An expert or an academician from outside of IIM Raipur can also be member of the committee provided s/he is interested in the topic of research and can spare time to guide the student. If the circumstances demand, the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) may, in consultation with the student and the Chairperson of the TAC, reconstitute the TAC. A Co-Chairperson TAC will be appointed (from amongst TAC members) if TAC Chairperson proceeds on long leave or quits the services of the Institute and FPM candidate’s pre-thesis submission seminar is not over. In case TAC Chairperson proceeds on long leave or quits the services of the institute before the thesis proposal seminar of the candidate, TAC will be reconstituted. The role of TAC includes the following: a. Judging the adequacy of the research design for the Thesis Proposal b. Attending thesis seminar to be presented by the students and to provide feedback c. Providing written feedback on the draft thesis submitted by the student Thesis Proposal Seminar The proposal should contain a survey of literature and context description on the subject. Students should clearly state their research objectives, relate these to the research in the area and problems in this context, develop a model or a set of hypotheses, provide clear definitions, describe and defend the proposed research methodology and highlight the potential contribution of the proposed study to theory, practice, and research in the relevant area of management. When the TAC agrees on the adequacy of the research design, the student formulates a preliminary thesis proposal and gives a seminar on the proposal to the institute’s academic community for getting further inputs to strengthen the thesis proposal. The student through TAC should give at least two weeks’ notice to the Fellow Programmes Office for arranging the seminar, in the interest of better participation from the institute’s academic community. During summer vacation, Fellow Programmes Office will schedule the seminar considering the availability of faculty members. Approval and Submission of Thesis Proposal A thesis proposal is approved only after the student has given the thesis proposal seminar and the TAC concludes that the subject appears researchable in the way it has been proposed. TAC will ascertain that the field work is likely to produce the required data and the analytical methodology if adequately carried out will produce an acceptable thesis, and the student is ready for doing full scale research. 16 FPM Manual 2017 | Indian Institute of Management Raipur

The student submits to the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) a copy of the thesis proposal approved by the TAC. The student’s failure to fulfil this requirement within 6 months after passing his CE will be considered as “unsatisfactory performance”. A student can be given one more chance to present the thesis proposal by the end of third year. Permitted leave without fellowship will be taken into consideration in calculating this time limit. If the student fails to clear in the second attempt, his/her registration will be cancelled. Thesis Research Under the TAC’s guidance, the student pursues independent and original research towards preparation of a thesis. The thesis may require field investigation and observation to ascertain and impartially report facts and issues of significance to organizations and institutions. The thesis should include effective analysis and evaluation of relevant data to yield independent and significant conclusions. Research Progress Report In order to promote a healthy system for tracking academic progress of the students and to facilitate the FPM Committee to take timely remedial actions, if any required, a six-monthly reporting system has been introduced for students from third year onwards. They are required to submit a six-monthly report of their progress to the Fellow Programmes Office. The report in the prescribed format (Annexure XIII) signed by the Chairperson of the TAC should reach the office latest by the end of every six months. Standards for Thesis The principal purpose of the thesis is to demonstrate the students’ capability to make fruitful use of research methods appropriate to the problem and to develop and handle evidence satisfactorily. Hence, the thesis should contain a statement of (a) the research procedures employed, and (b) the extent, nature, reliability and suitability of the evidence gathered. Clarity, conciseness and orderliness of writing and presentation are required. It is necessary to include sufficient evidence to support the reasoning and conclusions so as to permit other scholars to build upon them. The length of the thesis will vary with research topic and evidence required. The thesis need not be of book length. Draft Thesis The student submits one copy of the approved draft thesis duly signed by the TAC members to the Fellow Programmes Office. The draft thesis needs to be submitted before proposing the thesis seminar. Following are the pre-requisites for submitting the doctoral draft thesis: o Two Journal Papers acceptance in the classified list of IIM Raipur, or o One Journal + One International Conference Paper / One Case in Ivey or Harvard. o Student should be first author in at least one of the publications Thesis Seminar The thesis seminar needs to be presented by the candidate only after s/he submits the approved draft thesis to the Fellow Programmes Office. Before submitting the final thesis for defense the student presents a seminar on the research to disseminate the findings to stimulate research work in the area. The seminar also provides an opportunity to obtain feedback from the institute’s academic community including the TAC towards better presentation and findings. These suggestions have to be included in the final thesis. The student through TAC should give at least two weeks’ notice to the Fellow Programmes Office for arranging the seminar in the interest of better participation from the institute’s academic community. During summer vacation, Fellow Programmes Office will schedule seminars considering the availability of faculty members. Final Thesis Submission After incorporating all the suggestions provided in the Thesis Seminar, the student submits the final thesis along with a detailed abstract of the thesis not exceeding 10 pages (both soft and hard copies) and signed approval forms by all the TAC members to the Fellow Programmes Office within three months from the date of the thesis seminar.

Guidelines on Writing the Thesis The students may refer guidelines from APA manual of style3 or Chicago manual of style4 in drafting their thesis. In general, a paper, whether it is a thesis, a report or a dissertation is made up three parts: the front matter (normally referred to as prelims), the text and the reference matter. In a long paper each of these parts may consist of several sections but in a short paper there may be just the title and text. The number of sections naturally depends upon the length and complexity of the paper for example for a short paper there is no point in having a table of contents. The order should be as follows (of course parts may be omitted but this order should be maintained). Preliminaries o Title o Reverse of title page- a blank page o Letter of Transmittal certificate of Approval o Certificate of Approval o Abstract o Table of contents o List of illustrations o List of tables o Preface and Acknowledgement (either together or separate) The Text / Body o Introduction o Main body of paper usually consisting of o Part and chapters including notes. Reference Matter o Appendices and Bibliography

Thesis Examination Committee When a student is ready to submit his/her 6 copies of thesis work, he/she requests the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) to appoint the Thesis Examination Committee (TEC). The Chairperson (Fellow Programmes), in consultation with the TAC Chairperson, appoints the TEC consisting of two members of the TAC and two eminent external experts preferably one from abroad, to be taken from experts' list submitted by the TAC Chairperson. TAC Chairperson will submit a panel of eight external experts with complete contact details of which four should be experts from abroad in case s/he refers to get thesis evaluated from abroad. External experts must have published research credential in top class journals in the area of specialisation. The role of TEC includes the following: o Examining the thesis work o Conducting an oral thesis defense examination Non Completion of the programme and extension The stipulated period for completion of the course is 4 years for a regular student. One year of extension will be given to regular students, subject to the recommendation of the TAC Chairperson and due deliberation in the FPM Committee based on the progress report submitted by the scholar. No further extensions will be allowed but under exceptional cases the extension might be given for one more year. Students unable to complete the programme within six years of enrolment will be terminated from the programme and their registration will be cancelled. No stipend will be given during the extension period. The left-over contingency grant of the program can be utilized during the first year of the extension beyond four years. Others Exceptional cases, which are not covered by these regulations, will be referred by the Chairperson of the TAC to the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) for consideration. FPM committee along with a representative of the doctoral student will take the final decision on any referred matter.

OTHER POLICIES Issues Around Sexual Harassment and Safety of All on Campus Acts of sexual harassment are covered under The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 and Section 354 of Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013. Upon receipt of information on such instances by anyone to any authority in the Institute, the said authority shall immediately report the complaint to the Chairperson, Gender Sensitivity Committee (GSC). The Chairperson of GSC shall arrange for detailed investigation of the case and submit the report to the Director and FPM Committee with proposed course of action against the offender(s). The FPM Committee will implement GSC's proposed course of action in a timely manner. GSC’s Policy Guidelines are binding on all parties concerned. Plagiarism Policy IIM Raipur expects that students, faculty, research staff, all uphold academic integrity and practice exemplary scholarship. While submitting term papers, assignments, presentations, proposals, thesis, papers it is expected that the student who is submitting will ensure that it is his/her own work, they will acknowledge the work of other sources that they have borrowed from, and make it explicit who they have consulted in completing their work. Failure to acknowledge consultation, help, or sources are all treated as plagiarism. Plagiarism is judged by output and not by intent. Plagiarism includes copying, colluding (working with someone inside or outside the Institute while the requirement is that you work alone), submitting someone else’s work as yours. Plagiarism might be in the form of: o Copying text, ideas, figures, tables, computer code, mathematical derivations, and presenting it as yours. Changing it very slightly and not citing the source from which you took the original idea o Paraphrasing by substituting words, by changing the order of words or phrases and presenting it as your own o Paraphrasing by joining two or three short phrases from one or more sources o Not putting quotation marks for phrases, sentences, paragraphs cited verbatim from other sources o Making a collage by cutting and pasting from internet and openly available sources without acknowledging the sources o Copying from terms papers, assignments from previous year students o Copying from unpublished sources available to a limited audience o Presenting an idea that you may have thought of but is also found in another place as yours and not acknowledging who else and where has a similar idea been presented o Getting someone else (paid or non-paid) to do your work and presenting it as your work o Copying from your own work published or unpublished in the past without citing or mentioning it explicitly Use the Chicago Style Guide, or APA Manual (7th edition) or any style indicated by the faculty or the outlet to which you are reporting to cite, acknowledge work cited or quoted by you. If you have any doubts please ask a colleague, faculty, or the Program Office for further clarification. You could also refer to http://plagiarism.org/. Learning to cite and refer appropriately is the writer’s/author’s/individual responsibility. Ignorance about style, rules is not a sufficient excuse to indulge in intentional or unintentional plagiarism. Plagiarism is viewed as a serious offence and it will attract penalties including possible expulsion from the Institute. Complaints of plagiarism will be first made to the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) by the faculty and the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) will then initiate an enquiry and reach a decision. The student will have the right to appeal to the Director whose decision will be final.

Grievance Redressal Policy In the course of their program, it is sometimes possible that the student may face issues which affect his/her wellbeing or ability to complete the program. For those rare but possible cases the Fellow Programmes Office has the following procedure in place for the student to receive a fair hearing. Process to be followed by the FPM student and office to resolve program related issues For any issue the FPM student faces that he/she needs to be redressed and the Academic Advisor, Area Chairperson, or TAC Chair are unable to help the following process may be followed: The student submits a written complaint detailing the issue to the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes). As a first step the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) will meet with the student and ascertain if the issue can be solved by dialogue and discussion with the student and the concerned party. In case such intervention does not resolve the issue the Chairperson (Fellow Programmes) will form a sub-committee of two or three faculty members to address the issue in the fairest possible manner. The student if still dissatisfied can appeal to the Director who is the highest appellate authority in the Institute. The Director’s decision will be final. Publication Ethics and Authorship Norms Norms for publication ethics and authorship are well established among the academic community, such as the one specified by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)5. Attribution of authorship depends to some extent on the discipline but, in all cases, must be based on substantive contributions to a combination of the: o conception and design of the project; o analysis and interpretation of the research; o drafting significant parts of the work or critically reviewing it so as to contribute to the interpretation. Each author must have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for at least that part of the work they contributed. All persons designated as authors must qualify for authorship, and all those who qualify must be offered authorship. Authorship must not be offered to those who do not meet the requirements set out above. The right to authorship is not tied to position or profession: ghost, gift, or honorary authorship is unacceptable. For example, none of the following contributions justifies including a person as an author: o being an Organisational Unit head, holding other positions of authority, or personal friendship with the authors; o providing a technical contribution but no other intellectual input to the project or work to be submitted; o providing routine assistance in some aspects of the project, the acquisition of funding, or general supervision of the research team; o providing data that have already been published or materials obtained from third parties, but with no other intellectual input. Where relevant, the term ‘editor’ should be applied only to a person who has played a significant role in the intellectual shaping of a publication. Where appropriate, other persons who contributed to the research but do not meet the criteria for authorship should be named in the Acknowledgements. This includes those who have contributed facilities, materials or technical or other research or technical writing assistance. Funding bodies should always be acknowledged in a

5 https://publicationethics.org/ FPM Manual 2017 | Indian Institute of Management Raipur

25

manner consistent with that described in the relevant funding agreement. Where individuals are to be acknowledged, authors should make all reasonable steps to obtain their written or email consent. The order of the names in a publication is decided according to the quality of the contribution, the extent of the responsibility and accountability for the results, and the custom of the discipline. The attribution of authorship is not affected by whether researchers were paid for their contributions or by their employment status. An author who submits a manuscript for publication accepts the responsibility of having included as co-authors all persons who are entitled to co-authorship, and none who are inappropriate. The submitting author should send each co-author a draft copy of the manuscript and should make a reasonable attempt to obtain consent to co-authorship, including the order of names; other contributions should be indicated in a footnote or an "Acknowledgements" section, in accordance with the standards of the discipline and the publisher. Author(s)’ Responsibilities All researchers must take all reasonable steps to ensure that their findings are accurate and properly reported. If they become aware subsequently that their findings were inaccurate and/or improperly reported, then researchers should take all reasonable steps to correct the record. All researchers have a responsibility to accurately assign credit for contributions to a research publication or outcome. Each author of a research publication takes responsibility for the validity, originality, and integrity of the research that they contributed, or permitted to have been contributed, to the research that is disseminated. Each author must be offered the opportunity to review and approve the final version of the work to be submitted for publication. A researcher must, prior to publication of any research that names the researcher as an author, assure himself / herself that: o authorship has been offered to all people who meet the criteria for authorship listed above; and o appropriate steps have been taken to obtain each person's written or email notification of acceptance or disclaimer of authorship within a reasonable time of the offer being made. Collaborating researchers should agree on authorship and author order of a publication at an early stage in the research project and should review their decisions periodically. Where a publication has several authors, one author should take responsibility for: o recording authorship and managing communications about the publication with the co-authors and editor/publisher; o ensuring that all authors acknowledge their authorship and contribution in writing or by email before submitting the work for review; o keeping a record of such correspondence for the period described. Models to Promote Authorship and Author Order Discussion Some of the models that promote authorship and author order discussion are as follows: o American Psychological Association (1992) Ethical principles of psychologists and code of conduct. American Psychologist 47: 1597-1611. o Beveridge CA and Morris SE (2007) Order of merit. Nature 448: 508, www.authorder.com. o Winston RB (1985) A suggested procedure for determining order of authorship in research publications. Journal of Counseling and Development 63: 515-518.

Annexure XVI: Thesis Evaluation Guidelines Fellow Programme in Management

Indian Institute of Management Raipur THESIS EVALUATION GUIDELINES The Fellow Programme in Management at the Indian Institute of Management Raipur has 2 years of course work followed by a comprehensive written examination and viva. Upon successful completion of the course work, the scholar works towards his/her doctoral work which culminates in the form of a thesis. Presentation of the thesis in a public seminar and successful defense of the thesis in an oral examination is a requirement for the award of the title “Fellow of the Indian Institute of Management Raipur”. Accordingly, a Thesis Evaluation Committee (TEC) comprising of the three (Thesis Advisory Committee) TAC members of the scholar and two external examiners is formulated for examining the thesis of the scholar. The thesis is first examined by the TAC of the scholar who certify the thesis to be original and worthy of examiners by external examiners. A thesis must be evaluated by two external examiners before the scholar is permitted to proceed towards thesis defense. This document presents the guidelines for evaluation of the thesis of the scholar before it can be submitted for the defense. An external examiner is requested to evaluate the thesis on the basis of whether it contains an original idea or an original application of an existing idea and whether it is ready for a defense. The examiner may satisfy himself/herself as to whether the candidate has sufficiently exercised his/her mind and whether the overall quality compares favorably with doctoral dissertations in related areas. Importance must also be paid to the overall thesis as well as the robustness and vigor in the research method. The comments can be noted in the attached Thesis Review Form in the form of a narrative evaluation. In addition to providing a narrative evaluation, an external examiner is required to make an explicit choice of one of the following options with regard to the acceptability or readiness of the thesis for defense: Category I: Accept without change When all members of the Thesis Examination Committee (TEC) accept the thesis as Category I a. The scholar will go ahead with the defense. b. At the defense, all members of the TEC should sign two copies of acceptance form (one for library, one for Fellow Programmes Office). c. The scholar would then be required to submit hardbound copies of the thesis to the Fellow Programmes Office and the library within two weeks of the defense. Category II: Accept the thesis conditionally with minor modifications If one or more members of the TEC accept the thesis in Category II a. The scholar will go ahead with the defense. b. At the defense, all TEC members but the Advisor (or Joint Advisors) should sign two copies of acceptance form (one for library and one for Fellow Programmes Office). c. After the defense, the scholar will work on the suggested changes (as suggested by the examiners in their reports and during the defense) for which a maximum period of two months would be given to the scholar from the date of the defense. d. The scholar should then get the acceptance forms signed by the Advisor(s), who will ensure that changes have been incorporated in the thesis, and submit two hard-bound copies of the dissertation along with a letter from the Advisor(s) certifying that changes were made. Category III: Resubmission after Changes If one or more members of the TEC suggest Category III - Resubmission, i) The Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC) and the scholar will meet to discuss the issues raised by the examiner(s).

43

ii)

iii) iv)

v) vi)

vii)

The TAC and the scholar will decide on a time-frame to address issues/ queries raised by the examiner(s), which may be a maximum of six months. The scholar will address the issues/ queries and send a detailed correspondence – which may entail resubmission of part of the thesis but not the full thesis – to the examiner(s) (through the Fellow Programmes Office) who had suggested Category III, after the TAC accepts it. The examiner(s) will be asked to send his/her comments on the correspondence within two weeks of receiving it. The defense will take place after acceptance of the detailed correspondence from the scholar by the examiner(s). If the examiner is not satisfied with the first round of correspondence, a second round of correspondence should be sent. In rare situations where the second round of correspondence is also not found to be satisfactory by the examiner(s), the FPM Committee can meet and decide on the next step on a case-to-case basis. At the defense, all TEC members but the Advisor (or Joint Advisors) should sign two copies of acceptance (one for library and one for the FP office). After the defense, the scholar will incorporate a. all modifications as addressed by him/her in response to queries raised by the examiner(s), and b. changes suggested during the defense, for which a maximum period of two months would be given to the scholar from the date of the defense. The scholar should then get the acceptance form signed by the Advisor(s), who will ensure that modifications/ changes have been incorporated, and submit two hardbound copies of the dissertation along with a letter from the Advisor(s) certifying that changes were made.

Category IV: Unacceptable If one member of the TEC finds the thesis unacceptable, then opinion of a fifth examiner would be sought. If a thesis is found to be unacceptable by more than one examiner, then a new thesis has to be resubmitted. A scholar would be allowed to resubmit a new thesis only once. The time given for resubmission of a new thesis, however, should not be more than completion of seven years in the programme. At the defense, an oral examination will be conducted by the Thesis Examination Committee (TEC) comprised of the TAC and the two external examiners. The members of the TEC will evaluate whether the dissertation examined at the defense can categorically be certified as of the standard for the award of the title "Fellow of the Indian Institute of Management Raipur”. There can be one and only one dissent among the TEC members. If the TEC rejects the dissertation outright (with more than one member so rejecting), the candidate is dropped from the Programme.
