    Measuring Sustainability and CSR: From reporting to decision-making

    Editors: Slobodan Kacanski, Johannes Kabderian Dreyer & Kristian J. Sund



    Proposal Submission Deadline: June 30th 2021

    Expected publication: 2022


    We are calling for essay proposals for an edited book to appear in 2022 with Springer. We intend to gather a collection of interdisciplinary and critical discussion papers on theoretical and empirical issues and challenges related to the measurement of sustainability and corporate responsibility, as well as the possible consequences of these issues to various stakeholders. We thus invite scholars to discuss these issues for different aspects of management, and for different stakeholder categories. Contributions should take the form of discussion essays, or short papers, not traditional full-length papers. Contributions could for example discuss data sources and related problems, examples of how sustainability data is used in research and related limitations, examples of how sustainability reports inform investor behaviour, issues related to the (missing) links between reporting and impact (Pucker, 2021) etc.

    The full Call for Papers can be found here:

    A deadline for a full draft submission (ca. 2,000 – 4,000 words, including references) is October 30, 2021.
