The possibility that firms can develop a competitive edge over rivals by investing in social initiatives has been made increasingly likely over recent years by changes in consumer behaviour and policy choices towards society. IJCSSR fosters discussion on unresolved theoretical and empirical issues relating to the strategic implications of CSR and acknowledges that analysis of these implications can be hampered by cross-cultural differences. This perspective recognises the role of a firm's value chain in attaining competitive advantage through CSR.


 Topics covered include

  • Building social responsibility into corporate strategy
  • Cross-cultural corporate social responsibility (CSR)
  • CSR in banking industry and financial institutions
  • Socially responsible investment (SRI)
  • Green supply chain analysis and social responsibility in global supply chains
  • Integrating ethics and social responsibility in marketing strategies
  • Clean production and sustainable product design and development
  • Strategic human resources management and social responsibility
  • Leadership, creativity, and social responsibility
  • Economics of CSR
  • Reporting and auditing of CSR
  • Comparative studies in CSR
  • Social responsibility in public service organisations and NGOs
  • Strategic CSR for SMEs
  • Best practices and business case for corporate social and environmental responsibility

The objective of IJCSSR is to encourage and motivate original corporate strategy and social responsibility research and its application for competitiveness of manufacturing, service and governmental and nongovernmental organisations. The journal deals with strategy and social responsibility at function-level as well as from the firm perspective.


IJCSSR is a forum to help managers, professionals, practitioners, researchers and policy makers concerned with contemporary developments in the field of corporate strategy and social responsibility to exchange their knowledge and publicise their conclusions. IJCSSR attracts people from a variety of disciplines such as strategic management, marketing, corporate finance, production economics, operations research, inventory management, industrial engineering, materials management, supply chain management, statistics, human resources, economics, etc.


IJCSSR publishes original and innovative papers. Empirical studies, survey papers, technical correspondence, case studies and book reviews are relevant to IJCSSR, provided there is practical managerial relevance. State-of-the-art review papers that examine and evaluate recent developments of corporate strategy and social responsibility will also be considered. Special Issues devoted to important topics in corporate strategy and social responsibility will occasionally be published.
