Focus and Scope

Journal of Corporate Responsibility and Leadership (JCR&L) is a double blinded scientific quarterly published by the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management and the Centre for Leadership and Corporate Social Responsibility, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland. The aim of the journal is to establish the platform for scientific discussion and to disseminate the research findings on corporate responsibility and leadership. The scope of the papers published in the JCR&L covers the issues of:

- corporate responsibility to employees and other stakeholders, organisations in business environment, society and the natural environment;

The Editorial Committee may consider a paper previously published in a language other than English. Whenever such a paper is submitted for publication the author is obliged to make this clear.

The Journal publishes only papers in English.

JCR&L is published in a paper version and an on-line version. The paper version is a reference one.

Peer Review Process

The reviewing process

1. The initial desk revision of a paper submitted for publication is completed by the editor-in-chief (or executive editor) in cooperation with an issue editor(s).

2. The double blind scientific review is completed by two independent reviewers.

3. Based on the opinions of scientific reviewers, the editor-in-chief (or executive editor) and an issue editor(s) make a decision whether to accept a paper as it is, send it to the author(s) for minor or major revisions or reject it. Moreover, in the decision making process the opinions of a statistical editor and a language editor are taken into account.

4. All papers sent for major revision should be returned to the original scientific reviewers for their decisions.

5. The Editorial Committee once a year reveals a list of collaborating reviewers. It is available on the journal website under the tab "Board of Reviewers". The list of reviewers is also published in every issue.
