Additionally, we also analyzed which authors, journals and countries are most active in international ESG research.</p> <p><strong>Method:</strong> We performed a bibliometric analysis focused on co-citation and bibliographic coupling analysis, with exploratory factor analysis techniques and graphic mapping through clustering. Our sample included 405 articles published until December 2021 and indexed in the Web of Science database.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Through co-citation analysis, we identified 5 research streams, being a) Influence of Organizational Theories on ESG; b) Organizational competitiveness; c) Impact of ESG on financial performance; d) Corporate Social Responsibility; and e) Stakeholder Theory. Through the pairing analysis, we identified 6 theoretical frontier currents, namely: a) sustainable investments; b) Transparency and administrative council; c) Effects of ESG; d) Relationships between financial performance and corporate social performance; e) Relationship between shareholders and ESG; and f) Risks and ESG.</p> <p><strong>Originality:</strong> As far as we know, this is the most complete bibliometric study on ESG research, covering both basic and frontier theoretical currents.</p> <p><strong>Theoretical/methodological contributions</strong>: We identify in this work 5 theoretical currents that helped to found and develop ESG research as a scientific (historical) field and point out 6 emerging theoretical currents that help to understand where ESG research is advancing today (border).</p> 2022-07-25T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Thiago de Luca Ribeiro, Anderson Antônio de Lima https://rgc.org.br/Journals/article/view/116 Metagovernance and Democratic Legitimacy: a theoretical essay in light of non-market approaches 2022-06-24T00:50:45-03:00 Guilherme Paulo Andrade guilhermeandrade@id.uff.br Júlio César Andrade de Abreu julioabreu@vm.uff.br Ruan Carlos dos Santos ruan.santos@uniavan.edu.br Saleh Fadel Ahmad Khatib saleh.f.info@gmail.com <p><span id="page3R_mcid36" class="markedContent"><strong><span dir="ltr" style="left: 366.283px;

The data analysis occurred through Structural Equation Modeling.</p> <p><strong>Originality/Relevance:</strong> Product innovation and strategic resources are capable of providing great potential for economic transformation. It is strategically acknowledged that there is a relationship between product innovation and the use of resources, however, there are as yet insufficient empirical studies to determine which resources influence product innovation.

In this scenario, controlling shareholders often end up having a great influence on management. As a result, agency conflicts may arise (Dalmácio &amp; Corrar, 2007), mainly because controlling shareholders, who have the right to vote, are not always the holders of the preferred shares, which also share dividends (Lopes &amp; Walker, 2008). Thus, according to the Agency Theory, the possibility could be raised of the principal - the controlling shareholder aiming to maximize its individual utility (Martinez, 2001).</p> <p><strong>Main Results:</strong> It was verified that there is a positive relationship between the shareholding concentration and the distribution of dividends, that is, the higher the shareholding concentration, the greater the dividend distribution.</p> <p><strong>Contributions:</strong> For this research, it were used statistical tests utilizing the panel data regression technique and estimators of Weighted Least Square (WLS), in which were observed the results of the regressions of the total sample (1.440 observations) and four industry sectors, which showed evidence that, there is at least one variable with a statistically significant power (non-cyclical consumption, financial, health, and information technology).</p> 2021-06-15T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Cleiton Ricardo Kuronuma, Rodrigo Takashi Okimura, George Andre Willrich Sale https://rgc.org.br/Journals/article/view/108 Compliance as an instrument for monitoring and controlling Public Administration 2022-04-11T19:27:24-03:00 Claudia Abe Gargel Luengo claudia.luengo@uel.br Saulo Fabiano Amâncio Vieira saulo@uel.br Augusto Luengo Pereira Nunes augusto.nunes@ifpr.edu.br Vera Lucia Tieko Suguihiro suguihiro@uel.br <p>This study surveys the Public Administration Compliance state of the art in the national scientific domain and the understanding of its scope. Therefore, we applied a quantitative and descriptive approach, through bibliographic research for collecting data. Besides, we selected periodicals from the SPELL electronic library for the content analysis technique. The main contribution of this work lies in analyzing the state of the art of Compliance present in public administration while relating it to bibliometric laws and the verification of the authorship network, as there are several studies and surveys of Compliance, but aimed at private administration. As a result, we identified that the Revista de Administração Pública was the journal that most reported on the subject. Besides, there was a growth in publications over the years, with 2019 and 2020 being the years with the most publications. Also, it was observed that analyzed articles fitted the Lotka's law, but there was no applicability of Bradfort's and Zipf's law. The authoring network has a density of 0.037, considered a weak network. Finally, this work helps to map and identify the productions, their evolution over the years, the contributions and networks between the authors. In this context, we present the Compliance most cited articles in the national domain as a introductory guide for researchers of this area.</p> 2022-06-15T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Claudia Abe Gargel Luengo, Saulo F.

In fact, it would be interesting if there were specific legislation in Brazil on the topic of Corporate Governance, with a lower tolerance with companies due to lack of information, since only suggested practices and voluntary adherence may not be efficient to solve governance deficiencies in companies.</p> 2021-06-15T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Alex Eckert, Graciela Bavaresco da Silva, Daiane Dal Bem, Carlos Eduardo Schlindwein
