Abstract


Corporate governance code has being introduced in many countries recently in order to improve minority shareholders right protection as well as the firms’ transparency. The corporate governance system is also being used to make sure the management of the company run the company in the best interest of all stakeholders especially the shareholders. Some managers may have their own interest of holding excessive cash and overspending it on unnecessary and unprofitable projects Thus, this study investigates the relationship between cash holding and corporate governance among listed firms in Malaysia. This study measures corporate governance by looking at the internal perspective as the primary mechanism which is the board of directors. The objective of this study is to identify the relationship of shareholders’ power on cash holdings. The data of 512 public listed companies in Malaysia is obtained from DataStream as well as from firms’ annual report for the year 2009. From this study, it is found that there is a positive relationship between Board Independence and the level of cash holding for the sample firms. This finding is consistent with shareholder power hypothesis which indicate that firm with shareholder who have more effective control rights tend to allow manager to build up more cash reserve.

PUBLICATION ETHICS

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.

The editor has the following responsibilities:

1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
6.The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.
7.The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.
8.The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
