Directives aux auteurs

Submitting an article

Articles should be sent by email at the following address: Articles should be accompanied by a short cover letter within the body of the email. It should provide the following information:

  • 1st submission: title of article, names of authors, affiliations, possible conflicts of interest, brief justi- fication for choosing to submit to the ROR and all other information that might facilitate the editorial process.
  • Re-submission after modifications: title of article, names of authors, affiliations and brief description of main modifications.



The ROR publishes articles in French and English. However, in the latter case, publication is conditional on the presentation of proof of copy-editing (eg: an invoice) paid for by the author. The Editorial Committee reserves the right to refuse an article that has not been reviewed and corrected.


Preparation of the manuscript

The first page of the document must contain the fol- lowing elements: title, abstract, key words, information about the authors (surname, first name, affiliations, professional email, contact email if different, etc.) The second page of the document must contain the same elements, but with no information about the authors. The third page concerns the body of the text.



Every article must have a title in French and in English. The title facilitates referencing and summarises the content of the article. It should therefore be eye- catching, concise and use the key terms of the article (eg: in theory, method or field). Long or abstruse titles are to be avoided.



Every article should be accompanied by an abstract in French and English of about 150 words. It should indicate clearly and concisely the subject, the issue, the notions, methods, main results and central contributions of the article.



Every article should be accompanied by 5 to 8 keywords in French and English. They are used to index and reference the article. They should cover the various aspects of the article (theory, field, method, etc) and echo those used by writers in the field.



The body of the text should not exceed 10,000 words (excluding bibliography, tables, appendix, etc). The Editorial Committee reserves the right to reject any article that is too long.

It should be written following the rules of grammar and spelling.

It should be structured coherently in parts of 1st, 2nd and 3rd levels. The subtitles should be clear, concise and striking.

It should follow the following rules of presentation:

  • Margins: 3.5 cm top, bottom, left and right
  • Line spacing: 1.5 cm
  • Body of text: Times New Roman, size 12, justified
  • Subtitle level 1: Times New Roman, small capitals, bold, size 14, flush left
  • Subtitle level 2: Times New Roman, bold, size 14, flush left
  • Subtitle level 3: Times New Roman, italics, size 12, flush left
  • Titles of tables, figures, pictures: Times New Roman, bold, size 10, flush left


Tables, figures and pictures

Tables, figures and pictures should be titled and named in the text.

They should figure at the end of the text (after the bibliography) in order of appearance. At the same time, the author should mention in the text the ideal place to insert them (eg: “Insert table 1 here”). Nevertheless the placing may be modified because of the constraints of page-setting.

The author is responsible for undertaking all steps relating to obtaining any rights of reproduction or distribution of tables, figures and pictures. The Editorial Committee cannot be held responsible.


References and bibliography

The bibliography should start on a separate page from the body of the article. It should be headed “Bibliography”.

Every reference quoted in the text should be listed  in the bibliography (and vice versa). The use of sof- tware to manage bibliographical references is strongly recommended.

Bibliographical references should be precise. Citations consisting of more than three references at once in brackets are to be avoided. Indicating the page number is indispensable when quoting and in general is recom- mended. The page numbers follow the date of publi- cation, separated by a colon (eg: “Thus, as The Author wrote (2004: 20), the RSE is...”).

In the bibliography the references should be listed in alphabetical order starting with the first author as follows:

  • Research papers: Goggin, C. 1974. How the multi- dimensional structure works at Dow Corning. Harvard Business Review, 55 (1): 54-65.
  • Press articles (with no identifiable author): Le Monde Initiative. 2004. Handicap, quelques avancées. Juillet- Août : 3.
  • Chapters in books: Berg, N.A. 1973. Corporate role in diversified companies. In B. Taylor & I. MacMillan (Eds.), Business policy: Teaching and research: 298-
  • New York: Wiley.
  • Unpublished papers: Wall, P. 1983. Work and nonwork correlates of the career plateau. Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Academy of Management, Dallas, TX.
  • Books: Kahn, R.L., & Boulding, (Eds.). 1964. Power and conflict in organizations. Glencoe, IL: Free Press
  • Theses: Hereng, 2003. Réseaux d’observation sociale. Caractérisation et performance. Unpublished PhD in gestion, Université des sciences sociales, Toulouse.


Editorial line of Responsible Organization Review


The Revue de l’Organisation Responsable/Responsible Organization Review (ROR) is a multidisciplinary scientific journal affiliated with the Réseau International de Recherche sur les Organisations et le Développement Durable (RIODD) (International Research Network on Organizations and Sustainable Development), created in 2006 by Jacques Igalens (Toulouse Capitole University). It is ranked third in the FNEGE (Fondation Nationale pour l’Enseignement de la Gestion des Entreprises) (French Foundation for Management Education) academic journal quality list.


A transdisciplinary journal in the humanities and social sciences, ROR is firmly rooted in the field of business and society. As part of the necessary transformations we face as a society, it specializes in socio-environmental issues, examining organizations, collective action, territories, and other phenomena in transition.

True to its founding spirit, namely to examine efforts to implement corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a way of regulating capitalismROR defines itself as a journal that welcomes critical reflection on the developments of modern capitalism.

We want ROR to be a fertile multidisciplinary forum for the production of knowledge on the subjects that concern it. Unfortunately, such spaces are all too rare, and cultivating them a real challenge. At ROR¸ we are committed to meeting this challenge, in collaboration with the RIODD, a network dedicated to supporting and promoting interdisciplinary research on the changes in economic activities that are transforming the relationships between societies and human organizations. In these areas more than in others, the cultural dimension can shed crucial light on the topics discussed. We therefore felt it would be beneficial to accept articles written in both French and English.

ROR has also chosen to support the development of a plurality of editorial formats in order to allow researchers to express themselves freely through classic formats (original research articles) or alternative formats (presented below). This pluralism also allows the journal to reach a broader readership, which extends beyond the scientific community to cater for students, teachers, and professionals involved in current socio-ecological transitions and who are looking to cultivate a critical perspective.

The journal operates according to the principles common to international scientific journals: submission of articles by the authors; appointment of an editor in charge of each paper and two reviewers who examine the anonymized submissions; review procedure in the event that manuscripts require revisions prior to publication.

Whichever format the author(s) choose, the editorial board insists on the critical import of the texts, which must offer a contribution to the state of knowledge of the strategies and practices presented as responsible. Last, ROR strives to extend its role beyond that of a mere selection procedure, and endeavors to provide, insofar as its means allow, assistance to authors who are part of its editorial project, with a view to helping them progress in the production of scientifically validated knowledge.
