Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative logo.Aims & Scope

Journal of Global Responsibility (JGR) is dedicated to becoming the premier journal that publishes original and high-quality theoretical and empirical research in advancing our understanding of global responsibility issues in today’s interconnected and interdependent world. It will make contributions to thought leadership and excellent practice in this area. 

Global responsibility means individual, organisational and institutional duties, obligations and responsiveness to act or perform in ways consistent with globally accepted standards and norms of behaviour. It encompasses moral, social, economic and ecological responsibilities. The journal covers a wide range of global responsibility inquiries. 

  1. Responsibility within a global scope: Responsibility-related activities or issues directly relating to or involving the entire world, such as globalisation, global economic and social crises, global warming and environmental degradation. 
  2. Responsibility on a global scale: Responsibility-related issues or activities actually or potentially affecting, extending to, or spreading over the entire world, such as poverty, water shortage, waste, power and the impact of multinational enterprises and large social movements. 
  3. Responsibility at the global level: Responsibility-related issues with, or pressures and impacts from, public institutions and networks at the global level, such as world, intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations, and global or international networks, forums and active groups.
  4. Responsibility with a global perspective: Comprehensive, all-encompassing or holistic thinking and views on responsibility issues affecting the world.  

JGR welcomes contributions based primarily on the discipline of management (and governance). It also encourages contributions drawing on other disciplines, such as philosophy, ethics, political science, law, economics, sociology, anthropology and psychology, to provide insight into responsible governance, management and leadership in the global context. JGR is receptive to all levels of analysis on global responsibility issues, at the individual, organisational, network or macro level. 


JGR publishes conceptual, theoretical, empirical and review papers, as well as case studies, dialogues and commentaries. 

Conceptual and theoretical papers without empirical studies should develop new theories or conceptual frameworks. They can also extend, challenge or clarify existing theory, or synthesise recent thoughts and ideas into something new. 

Empirical papers should test, extend or build theory and develop new knowledge for practice. All empirical methods, whether they are quantitative, qualitative, experimental, meta-analytic or mixed, are acceptable. 

Review papers should critically review and evaluate the current research and knowledge in the area of global responsibility, analyse the theoretical, philosophical and methodological underpinnings of competing paradigms and perspectives, advance current research and provide new directions for future research in this area. 

The length of any of the above mentioned papers should not exceed 7000 words, including the abstract, tables, figures, notes, references and appendices. 

A case study (up to 3000 words in length) should provide an intensive and systematic investigation into a particular entity or research object. This can be a person, a group, a community, an organisation, an institution, an initiative, a programme or an important event. It allows an in-depth understanding of a single phenomenon in terms of global responsibility.  

A multiple case study (up to 5000 words) should examine several similar or different cases and compare their similarities and differences, thus allowing for a more comprehensive exploration of research questions and complex phenomena in relation to global responsibility. 

Case studies should use more than one type of data to gain insight into the phenomenon and be critically analytical and explorative rather than purely descriptive. 

The journal’s Dialogues and Commentaries section publishes short articles (up to 3000 words per article) and provides authors and readers with the opportunity to engage in public conversations and debates on global responsibility issues. Dialogues and commentaries should initiate new ideas or debates, provide fresh insights, argue for or against certain claims, and set new agendas for future research and practices. Furthermore, they may critically review and provide comments on current thoughts, praxis, discoveries, research findings, methodologies, practical plans and strategies, or initiatives and programmes. JGR’s policy is to publish dialogues and commentaries that provide original, important, insightful and valuable material. 

JGR is published quarterly in January, April, July and October.
