Advances in Financial Economics, "Corporate Governance"
Submissions are invited for a special issue of Advances in Financial Economics (Vol. 15). While Advances will continue to consider papers from any area of Finance, the focus of this issue is on corporate governance, broadly defined as the system of controls that helps corporations and other organizations effectively manage, administer, and direct economic resources. Papers are especially welcome if they deal with the role played by boards of directors, organization design and corporate governance mechanisms inside the firm, franchise agreements, and strategic alliances. Also sought are papers that delve into the effects of mandatory corporate governance mechanisms outside the firm, such as influences of federal, state, and local laws and regulations that govern corporate behavior. Studies of the corporate governance implications of the ownership structure of the firm, or the complex array of divergent claims on the value of the firm, are also highly appropriate.
Advances in Financial Economics, published by the Emerald Group Publishing Limited, Howard House, Wagon Lane, Bingley, BD16 1WA, United Kingdom, is a continuing series of refereed annual journal volumes featuring original academic research in financial economics.
