Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Analyzing Supporting Mechanisms, Cultural Shaping and Incentives, for Circular Economy: The Case of Local Governments   Order a copy of this article
    by Ilias Makris, Sotiris Apostolopoulos, Panagiotis Dimitrakopoulos 
    Abstract: This research examines the effectiveness of local governments’ policies regarding the circular economy in two directions: in shaping an ecological culture for households and enterprises and in creating a favourable environment for incentives. It also identifies inefficiencies, failures and good practices. A qualitative research was carried out via semi-structured interviews of twelve local self-administrative officials responsible for policy making on circularity. Findings indicate the impact of local-self administrative authority’s policies on citizens, households and enterprises, identifying strengths and weaknesses. It also suggests interventions towards the formation and consolidation of a strong ecological culture on circular economy issues, with emphasis on information networks and proposes interventions that are related to strengthening incentives for households and enterprises to participate in circularity. The results of the research can be used by European, national and local bodies who have the responsibility of developing policies for the circular economy.

  • Mapping the decade of Green Human Resource Management Research: Bibliometric Analysis   Order a copy of this article
    by Ajith Kumar Shah, Akanksha Shukla 
    Abstract: To mitigate the problem of pollution and environmental deterioration, organisations are heading toward the adoption of green practices. Green human resource management (GHRM) is one such practice that attempts to increase human participation in organisational green practices. It reduces the adverse impact of human-related activities on the environment. The emergent area of GHRM has been quickly progressing with a tremendous growth rate in the production of academic publications in this area. This paper performs a bibliometric and thematic analysis of 224 papers collected from the Web of Science (WOS) and Scopus database in GHRM. The analysis is conducted with the help of biblioshiny software. The study aims to identify the most influential and productive paper in GHRM and determine the recent trends in the area. It is found that GHRM is on the development path and getting massive attention mainly from Asian academicians.
