Research on CSR has developed far more than SSR, which is still at an early stage of development. Research on CSR is conducted in leading countries in the scientific and academic arena, and SSR rather in countries entering it. CSR has knowledge sharing platforms in the form of reputable, profiled journals, while SSR research is published in journals of lower reputation and with general rather than strictly SSR profiles.
