Other Call for Papers and Call for Reviewers

Call for Papers: Review of Business ~ Special Issue ~ Financial Distress and Bankruptcy

Review of Business, in co-operation with Institute for Financial Distress Research and Education, is seeking academic papers for a special issue on Financial Distress and Bankruptcy. In the past year, extreme economic circumstances became an everyday reality even for most well-established and prudent enterprises. High-profile business bankruptcies are in the news regularly and more are expected. A wave of personal bankruptcies is anticipated in the near future. Businesses and individuals alike are asking important questions: How to stay afloat? How to prepare for the future? While COVID-19 is a new development, the world economy has previously seen other extraordinary events. Research can assist in bridging a knowledge gap between inferences from the past and uncertainty of future developments. As a consideration for publication, an emphasis on the COVID-related crisis will be a plus, but priority will still be given to high-quality research. We invite authors to submit their research papers that focus on the following topics: 1)How should individuals, businesses, and government prepare for tail risk events? 2)How quickly will economic shock spread through the system, when impact will reach various sectors of the economy, what to expect, and how to respond? What strategies may be used to in navigate through the economic downturn?3)Banking system reaction and resilience: real test of stress testing.4)Is our bankruptcy system robust enough to handle such a massive wave of financial distress?5)Prevention of abuse of the bankruptcy process and safety net. 6)Governmental economic response to catastrophic events.7)Path to recovery on micro- and macro-economic levels. Selected papers will be invited for presentations. The Institute for Financial Distress Research and Education established a Best Paper Award. The best paper will be recognized in the journal issue and author(s) will receive $1,000 monetary prize. Please submit your paper by email [email protected] with a copy to [email protected]. The deadline for submissions has been extended to March 31, 2021.

Call for Papers: Corporate Governance: An International Review

Special Issue on “Ownership and Corporate Governance across Institutional Contexts”

The purpose of this special issue forum is thus to encourage integrative research on corporate ownership and how changes in corporate ownership composition affect corporate governance, as well as to facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas across research streams and communities traditionally focused on different institutional contexts. In particular, we are interested in how the now more heterogeneous corporate ownership structures affect corporate governance mechanisms and their effectiveness in different countries.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to November 30 2020. In accordance with CGIR’s values, we seek research that is both rigorous and relevant to practitioners and/or policy-makers. Since the overarching mission of the journal is to develop a global theory of corporate governance (Judge, 2010; Zattoni & Van Ees, 2012), multi-country examinations of the effects of heterogeneity and changes in ownership structures on the internal governance arrangements of firms in a variety of countries are particularly welcome. Both national and multi-national examinations will be considered. To view the full call for papers, click here.
