    March 30th, 2009LISWire aggregatorLISWire

    Emerald’s approach to publishing embraces the notion that ‘diversity brings strength in knowledge ecology’ and encourages the ‘export’ of ideas into the developing world.

    In her introduction to the special issue, Maria Aluchna Comments: “The issue offers a wide range of topics presenting aspects of current challenges of both topic of CSR and corporate governance. I truly recommend all the articles published in this special issue”.

    The issue consists of two sections, the first discusses the status and development of CSR and the second focuses on corporate governance.

    Social Responsibility Journal is edited by Professor David Crowther of De Montfort University, who comments: “A study of transitional economies is important in the present time, as they grasp with issues concerning their adaptation to a global perspective on business. This, of course, involves the implementation of governance and CSR programmes. SRJ always focuses upon current issues and debates and in this issue the progress of firms in transitional economies is considered from a variety of perspectives both by experts from within those economies and by experts from outside. The issue is guest edited by Maria Aluchna, Warsaw School of Economics, who has a particular expertise in this area.”

    Among the articles in the Special Issue Maria Aluchna is the author of “Implementation of best practice code: Practical implications from the Warsaw Stock Exchange”. Nicholas J.F. Ragadoo has written “CSR as a tool to fight against poverty: The case of Mauritius”. “Corporate governance and law- role of independent directors: theory and practice in India” by Iti Bose and “Status and direction of corporate social responsibility in Indian Perspective: an exploratory study” by Sudhir Chandra Das.

    Social Responsibility Journal presents ‘methodological and substantive debates in the area of social responsibility’. Submissions to the journal are accepted from any part of the world with the exception that it addresses one or more of the journals objectives.
