Call for conference papers

We cordially invite submissions of individual papers and panels of papers for the 7th International CSR-Conference.

Submission deadline: Final Call June 15, 2016

Although the theme of the conference is “CSR in an Age of Digitization” we invite submissions that contribute to advanced knowledge creation in the diverse area of CSR from a scientific, practical and/or political point of view. We encourage submissions from sociologists, psychologists, philosophers, political scientists, legal scholars, economists, management scholars and others who want to bring the logic and empirical techniques of their science to bear on issues of CSR.

As with past conferences we will also be providing authors with an opportunity to submit their work to a special issue related to the theme of the conference. This year the outlet will be Annals in Social Responsibility, co-edited by Timothy Devinney & Marc Orlitzsky. More information about the special issue submission details will be given closer to the conference date. Papers not aligned with the conference theme can also be submitted to the journal via the normal submission process.

Submission Process

Please submit a one-page proposal for each paper and add three keywords reflecting the topic of the paper (having a full paper is not a condition of either acceptance of a proposal or for presentation at the conference). Accepted proposals will be assigned to parallel sessions by the Program Committee. We also encourage panel proposals comprising multiple papers or a panel of discussants with distinctive expertise who will debate a common theme.

Submissions have to be send to:
