1. Corporate Governance, Responsibility and Sustainability


ISBN : 9781137361844

Publication Date : September 2015

Formats : Hardcover Ebook (EPUB) Ebook (PDF)

Publishers : Palgrave Macmillan

  • Corporate Governance, Responsibility and Sustainability investigates various dimensions of corporate governance issues in key emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, South Africa and Russia. The book explores a number of issues in the areas of corporate governance framework, market discipline, the role played by the formal legal and regulatory framework, building an efficient and competitive capital market, the various reforms suggested by various bodies in recent times to strengthen corporate governance norms and processes, as well as the changes in laws, rules and regulations, particularly in the post-economic liberalization period. Interestingly, one of the major areas of weakness is board of directors. Many firms have boards too small to be effective. Many have no independent directors at all, or a lone token one. Thus, the authors discuss the emerging understanding amongst boards about the integration of strategy, risk, sustainability and performance in corporate governance codes. Issues such as corporate social responsibility and sustainability are also examined .

Capitalising on human skills | Business Line

India has to compete through the quality of its human capital, its innovation and its research and development.

Is China's supply chain sustainable? | Business Line

Many a supply chain originates from China, and each has its pros and cons. The international community and sourcing companies need to take a long hard look at the emerging supply scenario.

Two or More Works by the Same Author(s) in One Citation: (Edeline and Weinberger, 1991, 1993)

11. Book reviews must contain name of author/editor and book reviewed, place of publication and publisher, year of publication, number of pages and price.

12. Once submitted, a manuscript goes through the following stages.

1. The Editor first cursorily examines the manuscript to check whether there is an obvious reason to reject it, for example, if it does not fit well within the aims and scope of GBR.

2. Once the preliminary checks are done, the manuscript is peer-reviewed, a stage which usually takes 5-6 weeks, but may take longer time in some cases. GBR follows a typical double-blind review process, meaning that the author does not get to know who reviews the manuscript and similarly, the reviewer does not know who wrote it.

3. Depending upon the reviewers’ recommendations, the manuscript is accepted or rejected or, most likely, rewriting suggestions are given to the author, who then modifies the manuscript as per the requirement and sends a revised manuscript.

4. Once the Editor decides to accept a manuscript, then the author is requested to send an electronic version (MS Word format) of the final document, which is then forwarded to the publisher (SAGE Publications).

5. The production process at SAGE begins with the copyediting of the manuscript, following which, queries (if any) identified by the Production Editor are sent to the Editorial Officer, who then forwards the query documents to the concerned authors. Queries could be about any missing information, ambiguous statements, or about missing citations and references in the article.

6. The Production Editor at SAGE works in close coordination with the Editorial Officer for GBR and resolves queries with the authors. The clarifications sent by the authors are sent to the Production Editor who then incorporates the suggested corrections in the article.

7. Several rounds of quality-checking are done at the publisher’s end, during which, the Production Editor may choose to send further queries (if necessary) to the authors through the Editorial Officer. The authors are shown the typeset proofs of their articles, so that they can review their articles and send proof corrections (if any), before the final version goes into print.
