Since the expansion of the recent global financial crisis the recently established international journal Journal of Governance and Regulation has become focused on market-based topics. The Journal has been established to publish high quality theoretical and empirical studies in governance and regulation with application to both macro and microeconomic issues. Its distinctive focus is original, rigorous research with practical applications. We consider this publication as an effective instrument to put in order the debate around the reasonability of implementation of regulation or governance efforts worldwide.
This includes the following areas of specialization:
- State regulation;
- Financial market regulation;
- Banking regulation;
- Bank and financial company governance;
- Financial crisis and regulatory strategy;
- Corporate governance reforms and financial crisis;
- Corporate law and financial crisis;
- Institutional approach to the regulation and governance;
- Social-economic outcomes of the regulatory reforms;
- Corporate social responsibility and corporate governance;
- Industrial companies regulation and governance;
- International regulatory institutions.
Both theoretical and empirical submissions are encouraged. Empirical work must provide tests of hypotheses based on sound theoretical foundations.
Starting with 2017 the journal became an open access with two options of publication: gold (immediate) or delayed (one year embargo period) open access. In this way we pay respect to our network and provide an opportunity to our authors to publish their papers in OA. All papers published in the Journal until 2017 can be moved to open access by the request of the authors starting in January 2018.
Delayed open access is a temporary measure to be available in 2017 in order to prepare our network of authors and subscribers for the complete move towards open access in 2018. During 2017 we expect to prepare our web page to publish all papers in 2018 in the open access.
