    Research into, and practice of, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is flourishing. In the business based disciplines there is evidence of substantial research emanating from the fields of accounting, management and marketing. However, within each of these fields there is often confusion as to the correct or more suitable terminology. Confusion across the disciplines is more prominent with the disparity frequently giving rise to similar (if not the same) studies conducted using different terminology. This suggests that there is potentially a broader body of CSR related knowledge. The purpose of this paper is to review the more common terms used synonymously with CSR and determine if there is any potential for better informing the CSR debate by using cross-disciplinary literature.
