Who can register case-studies with AIIM Case-center?

In order to ensure our thrust on sincerity, reliability and precision in generating intellectual output in the form of case-studies, we limit the opportunity to register a case-study to the following people:

  1. Faculty Members of AII
  2. Students of AII – in collaboration with faculty members
  3. Administrative staff at AII – in collaboration with faculty members
  4. Outsiders – Cases written by outsiders in collaboration with faculty members at AII can be registered directly.

Types of cases

AIIM case-center publishes two types of case-studies:

  • Teaching Cases – These are meant to be directly used in the subjective disciplines for teaching purposes. It is mandatory for such cases to be accompanied with teaching notes. Teaching cases are to be pre-tested before final registration.
  • Business Research Cases/Memos – Business Research cases can be exploratory in nature, and may not be aligned to subject matter of one particular discipline. These can be inter-disciplinary in nature, and can be used as a base for further research exploration. Memos can also be submitted to the repository for wider dissemination.

How to submit your case

Before submission – quality standards

Because we register, in good faith, all cases that have been correctly submitted, individuals and organisations are required to certify that the case meets professional quality standards and that it has been authored in an ethical manner. Any instance of breaching the ethical standards may bar the contributors from further opportunities.

Case testing

Pre-testing is required in the case of Teaching Cases. We do not consider a teaching case to be ready for submission and distribution until it has been comprehensively tested in the classroom. The author/s will need to give full details (course title on which the material was taught, name of the institution at which it was taught, name of the educator who taught it, date when it was taught, number of students in the session), of at least one instance that the materials that you are submitting to us have been tested.

Teaching note

All teaching cases should be accompanied with a comprehensive teaching note. The teaching note should clearly indicate the respective subject and module in which the case can be used.

Case release

To submit a field-based case to our collection, you must have received signed permission from the subject organisation.

Review

To enable recognition of cases as research output, we have a formal review process to ensure the quality of cases written. Before a case is registered with the AIIM Case-Center, we send it (along with a mandatory teaching note, in case of Teaching cases) to two referees, one internal and one external. The case is registered only after the case writer shows evidence of having revised the case based on the feedback received. A formal review process helps to increase the standard of cases and teaching notes.

Submission

The final copy of the case, along with the teaching note if applicable, can be sent in the form of a word-document to aiim.case@aiim.ac.in.

The case should be in a single file, containing all the exhibits and annexures. A list of exhibits and annexures should be given in the beginning. Teaching note should be submitted in a separate word-document.

Copyright and permissions

After registration of a case with us, the AIIM Case Center holds all rights with respect to its use. Permission from the AIIM Case-Center is required in order to digitize, reproduce, post, sale, or for any-other use of the Case.

Royalty

In instances of sale of case-study, the author is eligible for royalty for each sale as per the rules of the Institute. In case of multiple authors, the amount is equally divided among the authors.  Royalty will be paid annually.
