Frequency of publishing

The journal is published by the rolling model. This means, that as soon as a paper is accepted for publication, we initiate typesetting procedures. After the approval of the paper layout by the corresponding author, we add the paper to the current issue of the journal online. There are 2 issues of the journal per year. At the end of each season, we close the formation of the issue and publish contents of it online. After this, we publish the issue in print and start forming the next issue. Such model allows us to meet modern requirements of the research community for the timely publications. The authors, whose papers are accepted earlier do not need to wait for the complete issue to be formed, but their paper will be published online straight after the acceptance.

History of the journal

Corporate Governance deals tightly to the issues of behavior of individuals and groups of individuals within the organization as well as interactions of the organization with the external institutions, groups and individuals. Thus, it is important to deal with the governance issues not just in a strict approach of theories, instruments and policies, but also from the point of view of how shareholders, managers, employees, directors and other key-stakeholders are engaged in the governance process and how their behavior influences different characteristics of corporate performance and development. That’s why it was decided by the international network of the Virtus Global Center for Corporate Governance and scholars from the Sapienza University of Rome to establish the new journal (in 2017), which will help academics and practitioners to develop mentioned topic in terms of scholarly papers and find proper mechanisms and instruments of corporate governance within the framework of organizational behavior. Research in the journal’s interest can be categorized in at least three ways, including the study of individuals in organizations (micro-level), work groups (meso-level), and how organizations behave (macro-level). We consider this publication as an effective instrument to put in order the debate around corporate governance and organizational behavior worldwide.
