Dr Mohamed Elsayed, CQ University Australia

Special Issue Scope:

The objective of this special issue is to publish high quality papers that promote our understanding of the association between corporate governance and the corporate disclosure. In particular, the focus of this special issue is on the joint effect of both internal and external corporate governance mechanisms on the firms’ decision to voluntarily report high quality information either in their annual reports or any other communication tools (i.e. interim reports, conference calls, company’s websites, press releases). In addition, papers that focus on the economic consequences of the joint effect of both corporate governance and corporate disclosure are encouraged to be submitted to this special issue. 

We call for papers that deal with all aspects related to the link between corporate governance and corporate disclosure. We are interested in both conceptual and empirical studies that draw on a variety of theoretical perspectives (e.g. institutional theory, agency theory, signalling theory), and in quantitative as well as qualitative methodological approaches that add to our understanding of the potential effect of corporate governance on corporate disclosure.

Possible topics for contributions include, but are not limited to, the following issues:
• A meta-analysis (review) of published research on the association between corporate governance and corporate disclosure.
• The linkage between corporate governance theories and corporate disclosure theories.
• Professional bodies’ views on the potential association between corporate governance and corporate disclosure.
• To what extent different proxies of corporate disclosure quality affect the association between corporate disclosure and corporate governance.
• Corporate disclosure quality and corporate governance mechanisms: Are they substitutes or complements?
• The association between corporate governance disclosure and corporate governance mechanisms.
• The joint effect of corporate disclosure and corporate governance on share price anticipation of earnings, the company’s cost of capital and financial analysts’ earnings forecasts.
• Does better corporate governance improve the relationship between asymmetric information and corporate capital structure?
• Does better corporate governance improve the association between asymmetric information and corporate dividend policy?

Contributions from both developed and developing countries are welcome.
