Four College of Business faculty members featured in Sustainability academic journal
College of Business Administration associate dean for academic programs Chwen Sheu was recently invited to guest edit a special issue for the academic journal Sustainability, titled "Toward Sustainability: Supply Chain Collaboration and Governance."
This special issue aims to contribute to the sustainability and corporate social responsibility literature by answering the research question, "What can firms do, and how, to improve environmental and social performance within their supply chains?" It invited manuscripts that investigate the development, management, and governance of inter-organizational collaborative programs aimed at achieving the goals of sustainability.
The special issue closed on July 10. Four College of Business Administration faculty members — Bongsug Chae, MK Kim, Jiho Yoon and Sheu — and a doctoral student in hospitality administration — Eunhye Park — submitted the following four manuscripts, which were accepted and published:
- Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): A Survey of Topics and Trends Using Twitter Data and Topic Modeling, by Bongsug (Kevin) Chae and Eunhye (Olivia) Park.
- Environmental Sustainability as a Source of Product Innovation: The Role of Governance Mechanisms in Manufacturing Firms, by Myung Kyo Kim, Chwen Sheu and Jiho Yoon .
- Toward Supply Chain Sustainability: Governance and Implementation of Joint Sustainability Development, by Yongmei Xu, Jiho Yoon, Myung Kyo Kim and Chwen Sheu.
- A Dynamic Failure Rate Forecasting Model for Service Parts Inventory, by Ta-Yu Chen, Woo-Tsong Lin and Chwen Sheu.
Corporate social responsibility and sustainability is one of the strategic themes for the College of Business, and these four faculty members' efforts in this area support the college's strategic plan.
Sustainability is an international, cross-disciplinary, scholarly, and open access journal of environmental, cultural, economic, and social sustainability of human beings.
