This journal is conceived with a view of providing a platform for members and non- members who are in academia and others in practice (Consultants, Practitioners, and Policy makers) who are interested in research in corporate governance to contribute to knowledge and skill development as well as provide information on new developments and thinking in corporate governance. The aim of Corporate Standards: An International Journal of Corporate Governance Research is to publish top class scholarly and friendly research papers in corporate governance.

We have a broad and global approach to corporate governance. Hence, the Institute defines corporate governance as a system by which corporate entities are directed and controlled so as to ensure corporate value creation through equitable, accountable, responsible and transparent generation, distribution and protection of the rights, interests and wealth of stakeholders and the corporate entity. Therefore, apart from research on key corporate governance issues, authors are welcome to submit manuscripts in related areas such as governance, risk management, and compliance, law, management, economics, accounting, financial management, banking and finance, insurance, sociology, political science, education, science and technology, etc as long as they have a bearing with corporate governance.

We are therefore, using this medium to call for manuscript submission for publication in the journal from experts within and outside academia.

Submission Guidelines

All manuscripts to be submitted should comply with the following guidelines:

All manuscripts submitted to the journal are peer-reviewed, and we aim to provide feedback to authors within six weeks of the submission of manuscript.


Accountability. Intergrity. Transparency. Honesty. Responsibility
