The Cost of Equity is the rate of return required by the company's ordinary shareholders in order for that investor to bear the risk of holding that company's shares. The return consists both of dividend and capital gains. The returns are expected future returns, not historical returns.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
International Journal of Economics & Management Sciences (IJEMS) is one of the blind peer-reviewed journal on Cost of Equity. It seeks to provide original contributions which add to the understanding of business responses to improving environmental performance. Full length academic papers as well as shorter more practitioner based "BSE Briefings" are invited. These should be of interest to a broad interdisciplinary audience.
