Corporate Governance: An International Review

Call for Proposals: Review Issue 2021

Deadline for Submissions of Proposals: September 1, 2019


Corporate Governance: An International Reviewseeks proposals for review articles that consolidate and advance current knowledge of subjects in line with the mission of the journal. The mission of CGIRis to publish cutting-edge international business research on the phenomena of corporate governance throughout the global economy. We define corporate governance broadly as the exercise of power over corporate entities so as to increase the value provided to the organization’s various stakeholders, as well as making those stakeholders accountable for acting responsibly with regard to the protection, generation, and distribution of wealth invested in the firm.


Review articles should be high-impact scholarly surveys of important streams of governance research. They should compile the state of corresponding knowledge, integrate related literatures and provide promising avenues for future research. Their scope should be broad enough to attract general interest and sufficiently focused to be dealt with in a single article.


Submissions have to follow a two-step process. First, an article proposal must be submitted by September 1, 2019. The proposal outlines the subject, the novelty and the contribution of the review. Proposals should be double-spaced and not exceed eight pages of text (including a brief executive summary, but excluding references). Complete papers will not be considered. Authors may indicate in their proposal that the draft of a full paper already exists. Submissions of proposals must be made via the CGIRwebsite ( and indicate that the submission is intended for the CGIRreview issue.


Proposals will be evaluated with regard to the following criteria:


  • Fit of the subject with the scope of CGIR
  • Relevance and novelty of the review topic
  • Incorporation of relevant literatures
  • Integration of related concepts and/or streams of research
  • Implications for future research
  • Overall significance of intended contribution
  • Clarity of exposition and writing


Final decisions on proposals will be made by October 15, 2019. Authors of selected proposals will be invited to submit a full paper of their review article by March 31, 2020. Full papers will be subject to the CGIRstandard double-blind reviewing process. It is anticipated that the review issue will be published in 2021.
