Corporate Sociopolitical Activism


Unpublished manuscripts are requested on the firm consequences of corporate sociopolitical activism


Author: ELMAR Moderator

We are a team of researchers currently conducting a meta-analysis of the firm consequences of corporate sociopolitical activism (e.g., firm activism, company activism, brand activism, CEO activism, firm political and social advocacy). To this end, we are requesting that researchers who may have in-process work, manuscripts under review, or file drawer empirical studies related to this topic would consider sharing their findings with us by May 9, 2023.

Anonymity can be preserved to the extent that contributing researchers prefer, and we are happy to cite working papers/unpublished manuscripts in ways consistent with researchers’ preferences.

Please note: We are not requesting original data files; we are only requesting the specific statistics needed for the meta-analysis, which include: sample sizes, effect sizes (specifically correlations between a measure of corporate sociopolitical activism and any of its firm consequences/outcomes), reliability/Cronbach alphas of corporate sociopolitical activism measure or corporate sociopolitical activism manipulation check measure in experiments, and consequences (e.g., consumer responses, firm profit, market responses) as well as basic information about the study and its design like mean age, gender split, country of data collection, etc. However, if the authors prefer to share their original data and let us derive those results, this is fine too.

We have set up an anonymous gmail address where interested researchers can share the aforementioned information and/or any questions they might have:

We have chosen to maintain our anonymity given this meta-analysis is being conducted as part of an ongoing double-blind peer review process.

Thank you in advance for helping us understand the firm consequences of corporate sociopolitical activism with as broad a perspective as possible!

We are happy to share all results with anyone interested upon acceptance of the project.
