Corporate governance deals with how corporate power is channeled for the well-being of society. Now that corporations are often larger than many state governments and that increasing numbers of multinational firms span the entire globe, the importance of getting corporate governance right is more important than ever to individual firms as well as entire societies. As a result, scholarly attention to the antecedents and consequences of corporate governance practices and systems continues to climb. Many different academic disciplines study various aspects of corporate governance. Notably, corporate governance problems often have financial, accounting, political, legal, and managerial aspects to them.
Annals of Corporate Governance (ACG), published under the auspices of the International Corporate Governance Society, bring together scholars from these various disciplines and provide high-quality survey and tutorial monographs of the field encouraging conversations within and between these disciplines. Each issue of ACG comprises a 50-100+ page monograph written by research leaders in the field. Monographs that give tutorial coverage of subjects, research retrospectives as well as survey papers that offer state-of-the-art reviews fall within the scope of the journal, as does advanced theory and debates.
