History of the journal
Corporate governance reforms have been initiated toward a boardroom at the beginning of the third millennium. Initial efforts, undertaken by Derek Higgs, Alyson Tyson, Turnbull and others activists of corporate movement, have been supported by many promoters and followers worldwide. Shareholders, especially those whose rights have been violated for many years, realized that board practices are very inefficient and provoke a conflict of interests.
Therefore, board practices must be sufficiently reviewed. Practitioners have already moved toward shareholders. They have developed many codes of best board practices both in developed and developing countries. The US and UK promoters are leading here. But their efforts must be supported by academics who should undertake many investigations to consider the most vital problems in board practices from different points of view.
To support the initiatives made by practitioners in the field of reforming the board practices with an academic research, in 2004 an initiative group scholars and practitioner activists consisting of Shann Turnbull, Ann-Maree Moodie and Hideki Takei, Alex Kostyuk addressed these ideas to publishing house Virtus Interpress which assumed responsibility to establish a new corporate board journal "Corporate Board: role, duties & composition". As a result, the journal was established in January 2005.
