Theme: Expanding the Horizons of International Accounting Research
The goal of this conference is to deepen understanding and raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities of international accounting through the sharing of original and rigorous research work that will provide practitioners and regulators with deeper insights into international accounting issues. While the journal continues to welcome innovative and high quality research that examines how accounting data affects capital market participants, one of the goals of the 2nd Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR) conference is to expand the horizons of international accounting research. Papers that address interesting and innovative research questions in all areas are welcomed.
Papers addressing issues such as the following are particularly welcomed for plenary sessions:
- The contractual uses of accounting data in international settings
- The regulatory uses of accounting data in international settings
- How and why the contractual and regulatory uses of accounting data vary across countries
- The use of accounting data in international trade disputes
- The use of accounting data in international litigation
- The effects of IFRS adoption on uses of accounting data – including, but not limited to, capital markets
- How and why the effects of IFRS adoption on uses of accounting data varies across countries
- The challenges of management and control in a global world
- The relevance of methods and paradigms from cross-cultural psychology and international business to international accounting
Papers can be submitted for consideration in one of two tracks: Plenary Session submissions or Concurrent Session submissions. For the Plenary Sessions, please submit papers that are on international accounting issues (suitable for JIAR). We accept papers in all areas of accounting for the Concurrent Sessions.
