Publications Database

Welcome to the new Schulich Peer-Reviewed Publication Database!

The database is currently in beta-testing and will be updated with more features as time goes on. In the meantime, stakeholders are free to explore our faculty’s numerous works. The left-hand panel affords the ability to search by the following:

  • Faculty Member’s Name;
  • Area of Expertise;
  • Whether the Publication is Open-Access (free for public download);
  • Journal Name; and
  • Date Range.

At present, the database covers publications from 2012 to 2020, but will extend further back in the future. In addition to listing publications, the database includes two types of impact metrics: Altmetrics and Plum. The database will be updated annually with most recent publications from our faculty.

If you have any questions or input, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Abstract This study addresses the connection between financialization of real-estate, individual investment objectives, and urban sustainability. It uses a survey approach to explore the relationship between the financialization of urban development and its influence on urban sustainability in a developing country. We found that the respondents prefer to invest in real-estate to achieve a return on investment, rather than to build a house to live in. This behavior increases urban sprawl resulting in a slower occupancy growth rate and causes a delay in the provision of basic amenities, hence affecting urban sustainability. We conclude that it is necessary to create a balance between urban land development requirements for housing needs, investment requirements for revenue generation, and individual savings requirements. The study contributes to the literature on financialization by adding the view of individual private investors to the research that mainly addresses institutional investors.

Abstract This paper examines the role of accounting in assigning financial values to stakeholder claims. Stakeholder theorists have called for metrics managers can use to coordinate stakeholder claims. We argue that accounting already serves as the dominant example of such a tool, and that its role in measuring and representing stakeholder claims, and how those representations are used by stakeholders and managers, is not well understood. We suggest that accounting financializes stakeholder claims along three inductivelydeveloped dimensions, namely time, security, and priority. We analyse the case of pension accounting at General Electric to theorize concerning how these dimensions shape stakeholder claims and are used by stakeholders and managers to trade-off claims, demarcate claimants into groups, and reconstruct claims during negotiations.
