The aim of our research is to achieve an integrated way of representing organizational value to include both the generated value aspects and the financial ones. In particular, one of the most innovative aspects addressed in this special issue is that of emotional value. Given its computational complexity, emotional value has always been relegated to future research. This issue includes 15 papers which focus on various holistic paradigms, for example, the Social Accounting for Stakeholders or Stakeholder Accounting (SAS) model. Rather than focusing purely on factors relating to economic activity, we aim to explore the processes that engage stakeholders. Furthermore, contributors apply the idea of social value to a variety of settings: universities, science and technology parks, disability organizations, food markets and the sports industry.
