Share Your Research Journey Through The CRCS Working Paper Series

The Working Paper Series is a collaborative project of the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability and the School of Business and Governance at Murdoch University. It is intended as an accessible forum for CRCS members to publish the preliminary results of their work and to bring their research to a wide audience prior to final publication.

The CRCS Working Paper Series is coordinated by Dr Terri Trireksani (T.Trireksani@murdoch.edu.au)

CRCS Working Papers

CRCS Working Papers are pre-publication versions of academic articles, book chapters, or reviews. Papers posted on this site are in progress, under submission, or in press and forthcoming elsewhere. Working papers are offered on this site by the authors and are not formally refereed. The views expressed are those of the author(s).

Although there is no formal refereeing process, submitted manuscripts will be screened by members of the editorial board, and authors may be asked to make changes before their work is accepted for the series. The editors reserve the right to decline papers that are not considered sufficiently well developed or relevant to the CRCS themes.
Papers may be downloaded from this site by individuals for personal use subject to the rules governing fair use of professional scholarship. Papers are set in PDF format, and access requires the use of a PDF reader. Comments on papers or questions about their content should be directed to the author(s). Once working papers have been published elsewhere, a relevant link to the publication will be posted on this website

Working Papers in this series are to be cited as follows:
