Aims and scope

Social Responsibility Journal (SRJ), an official journal of the Social Responsibility Research Network, is interdisciplinary in its scope and encourages submissions from any discipline or any part of the world which addresses any element of the journal's aims. The journal encompasses the full range of theoretical, methodological and substantive debates in the area of social responsibility. Contributions which address the link between different disciplines and / or implications for societal, organisational or individual behaviour are especially encouraged.

The journal publishes theoretical and empirical papers, speculative essays and review articles. The journal also occasionally publishes special themed issues under the guidance of a guest editor.

Coverage is broad and explores the relationship between social responsibility and:

  • Accountability
  • Sustainability
  • Economy and finance
  • Governance
  • Stakeholder interactions
  • Ecology and environment
  • Corporate activity and behaviour
  • Ethics and morality
  • Governmental and trans-governmental regulation
  • Globalisation and disintermediation
  • Individuals and corporate citizenship
  • Transparency and disclosure
  • Consumption and its consequences
