Call for Submissions

The Professionalism and Ethics Committee and Public Interest Section of the American Accounting Association invite submission of papers, cases, and panel session proposals for presentation at the 18th Annual Ethics Research Symposium on Sunday, August 4, 2013, in Anaheim, CA. The 18th Annual Ethics Research Symposium will immediately precede the AAA Annual meeting concurrent sessions.

The AAA's Professionalism and Ethics Committee is charged, in part, "to encourage and support accounting ethics education and scholarship in universities, and to set a tone for instilling a greater sense of professionalism and ethical conduct in the practice and teaching of accounting." Accounting ethics and professional responsibility research has never been more important. As academics, we must continue the quest for answering the question of how we can better present ethical frameworks that educate future accounting professionals. As professionals, we should demand transparent and accurate disclosures from corporations that affect the public. As academics, we can advocate for socially responsible behaviors through our research

The 18th Annual Ethics Research Symposium encourages submissions of all academic research, teaching papers, panel sessions, cases studies and notes that address accounting, its ethics, its professions and organizations. Early and middle-stage papers are encouraged. Submitted research should focus on ethical applications for better teaching, practice, and/or business that will ultimately benefit individuals, government, or society. Submissions should follow the format used in AAA journals or one of the journals listed below that are associated with the symposium. Contributions from members of all AAA Sections are invited.

Contributors may receive invitations from the following journals that are associated with the Annual Ethics Symposium: Accounting and the Public Interest, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, Global Perspectives on Accounting Education, and Research on Professional Responsibility and Ethics in Accounting. At Sunday's Accounting Exemplar Luncheon the Accounting Exemplar award will be granted by the Public Interest Section. In addition, the Symposium will recognize other research including: the Best Research Paper, the Best Innovation for Teaching, the Best Paper by a current doctoral student, and the Best Paper by a recent graduate (graduation from a doctoral program must have occurred within the last 3 years).

SUBMISSIONS will be accepted beginning February 15th 2013 at our AAA website: https://aaahq.org/AAAForms/AM2013/formETHICS.cfm. The success of the Symposium relies upon all its participants. To participate as a reviewer, discussant or moderator please volunteer by using the hyperlinks shown at the top of this announcement.
