ICGS and CGIR's mission is to improve the quality and the relevance of international corporate governance (CG) research. The purpose of the consortium and the PDW is to provide junior scholars with developmental feedback on their research papers in the field of CG. We are soliciting doctoral students and junior scholars – from any discipline (e.g., accounting, finance, organization, strategy) and any country – to submit an original paper on CG.


The Consortium and the PDW is divided in two parts. In the first hour, CGIR Editors will meet individually with two authors and provide feedback on how to improve their papers, so to increase the probability of acceptance by CGIR or other CG journals. In the second hour, the CGIR Editors-in-Chief and Senior Editors will present the journal's mission and scope, the key statistics on submissions and acceptance rate, and the editorial review process. This will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the editorial team. At the end of the PDW, there will be the possibility to have informal conversations with the Editors-in-Chief, Editors and Editorial Board Members of CGIR so to learn the nuances of successful publication strategies.
