Corporate Board: Role, Duties and Composition journal: New feedback from the reviewers

The Publishing House Virtus Interpress is constantly implementing its transparency policy in terms of communication with its stakeholders – authors and reviewers. This time, we would like to present new feedback from the reviewers of the journal Corporate Board: Role, Duties and Composition:

Dr. Salma Ibrahim, Associate Professor and Research Lead, Department of Accounting, Finance and Informatics, Kingston University, the UK: “I recently completed two reviews for ‘Corporate Board: Role, Duties and Composition’, a journal for which I also sit on the editorial board. The review process is quite transparent and smooth. I was assigned the review (completely anonymized) and given a specific time frame to complete the review as well as information on how to complete the review and a standard form to provide the review. The standard review form is concise yet provides opportunities to add comments and provide feedback to authors to improve their work. In one instance, I asked for an extension to complete my review which was quickly provided to me. Overall, I was very happy with the process.”

Daniel Zeghal, PhD FCPA, Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa, Canada: “I am highly satisfied with my experience as a reviewer for the journal “Corporate Board: Role, Duties and Composition”. The journal’s editor and the team are particularly kind and very professional. I always had enough time to do the review. Most of the times, the papers I reviewed were of high quality. Also I’ve been very pleased with the authors’ collaboration and their willingness to take into consideration my comments in order to improve the quality of their paper”.

Mel Jameson, Professor of Finance and Director of International Initiatives, UNLV Lee Business School, the USA: “I feel that the review process at Corporate Board: Role Duties and Composition works well.
