17th Annual Ethics Research Symposium
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Sponsored by the AAA's Professionalism and Ethics Committee
and the Public Interest Section ~ 2012 Annual Meeting, Washington, DC
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE:
APRIL 1 (EXTENDED TO APRIL 8), 2012
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 17th Annual Ethics Research Symposium to be held immediately preceding the concurrent meetings, Sunday, August 5, 2012, in the area of Washington, DC. Contributions from members of all AAA Sections are invited.
The AAA's Professionalism and Ethics Committee is charged, in part, "to encourage and support accounting ethics education and scholarship in universities, and more broadly to set a tone for instilling a greater sense of professionalism and ethical conduct in the practice and teaching of accounting."
We, our current and former students, and all practicing accountants and institutions now face conflicting ethical choices that arise from many authorities, so we expect many contributions on topics obtained from the intersection of accounting and ethics.
Therefore the 17th Annual Ethics Research Symposium encourages beginning and completed thoughtful research and teaching papers, and panel sessions, cases studies and notes. Sample topics may include, but are not limited to, the philosophical, theological, social, political, and historical foundations of accounting, its ethics, its professions and its institutions; and its ethical applications in practice to business, organizations, governments, and to the general well being. Ethics quality similar to audit quality research will also benefit from framework and research summary papers. [See for example, Francis, R. Jere. (2011). Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory 30 (2): 125–152]. Specifically, we encourage researchers in mainstream areas (e.g., financial reporting, auditing, taxation, management, ABO, MIS, public interest, international, teaching, government and non-profit) to identify and address the implications of ethics in your research.
Contributors may receive invitations from the following journals, historically 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. Given the author's interest then, previous papers from these or other targeted journals should be considered before submission. The Accounting Exemplar Luncheon held on Sunday, jointly sponsored by the Ethics Symposium and the AAA's Public Interest Section, will recognize the Best Research Paper, the Best Summary of Research Paper, the Two Best Papers by Doctoral Students, and the Best Contribution to Teaching.
A reception is planned for 7 PM Saturday, August 4, with special attention to be given to all doctoral students who attend. Questions and submissions can be sent to Michael Kraten (firstname.lastname@example.org) and John Sennetti (ES-AAA@huizenga.nova.edu). (Please use complete addresses).
