Aims and scope

The International Journal of Corporate Social Responsibility (JCSR) offers a unique platform for the latest theoretical and empirical research and for innovative concepts for sustainable business strategies which create value for business and society (shared value). It contains best practices, literature reviews and leading foresight thinking in the field of business and society. It makes latest innovative management approaches accessible to academics from various disciplines, business leaders and interested research students alike. JCSR aims to bridge gaps from various perspectives on sustainability challenges (financial crises, climate change, demographics, business disruptions etc.) from all over the world and contributes to a broad trans-disciplinary and intercultural discussion on the role of business in society. In addition, its goal is to develop sound academic concepts as well as empirical data with the idea of creating value for business and society at the same time. It aims to become the leading platform for the latest management thinkers by providing articles not published before and approved by an international scientific community.
