iComply.in ("website") is a unique forum for corporate professionals to share experiences, discuss concerns and find solutions and inspiration within a confidential and supportive environment. It aims at providing a platform for professionals belonging to Corporate Governance Community to interact, exchange their research, findings and undertake joint research studies. It is designed for persons who have been contributing to R&D and publishing their research findings in professional journals.

At present there is no disciplinary forum for persons specifically belonging to Corporate Governance Community. It was felt that the current era of Shareholders empowerment and rapid policy re-orientation have ushered a new era of liberalized legal environment. Self-regulation of Corporate affairs is now the order of the day. All the readers are allowed to submit their research papers. The submitted papers are refereed (peer reviewed) and the accepted papers are uploaded on the website. Placing the paper in our website does not prevent the authors from publishing it in any journal. These are considered similar to working papers and not as publications. ​It’s also rewarding. Many of your peers (and potential employers or clients) will read your work, and you’ll also learn a lot in the process—about communicating your ideas, about writing, and even about the topic you thought you already knew when you started.
