Трактовка социальной ответственности бизнеса и смежных понятий в российских научных исследованиях
In modern science, there is no single approach to understanding the social responsibility of business (SRB), which necessitates a systematization of interpretations of this concept. The main method of empirical research is multivariate content analysis of 200 Russian scientific publications, in the process 44 definitions of the concept of «social responsibility of business» are highlighted. The result of the analysis of definitions is the formulation of approach to the interpretation of SRB, which is based on 4 semantic categories, within which this concept is considered by Russian researchers: social responsibility as a concept, the nature of social responsibility, its goals and boundaries (in terms of areas covered, stakeholders, ethical issues, etc.). In the paper it was able to identify a group of definitions, together with which Russian publications primarily address the social responsibility of business. The concepts of social investments, social activities, social partnerships, corporate citizenship, corporate charity, social entrepreneurship are rated as the most significant for Russian authors from the point of view of understanding SRB. It is concluded that there is an extremely wide range of interpretations of the social responsibility of business and related concepts, moreover, it was able to make the assumption that the focus of scientific discussion will change in the direction of defining SRB and related terms.
