The Eighth International Conference of the JIAR

Call for Submissions

The Eighth International Conference of the Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR) will be held June 24-26, 2021, preceded by the JIAR Doctoral/ New Faculty Consortium on June 23, 2021. We are happy to announce our in-person conference will transfer to a virtual setting but will preserve the key elements of our traditional program. 


The goal of the conference is to expand the diversity and scope of international accounting research, through increased understanding and awareness of the challenges and opportunities of international accounting. Original and rigorous research work will provide academics, practitioners, and regulators with deeper insights into international accounting issues.


We welcome innovative and high-quality international accounting research related to all areas (financial, managerial, audit, and tax). Papers can be submitted for consideration in one of two tracks: Plenary Session submissions or Concurrent Session submissions.

Important Deadlines
Paper Submission Deadline: January 31, 2021  February 28, 2021, 11:59 pm EDT.
Doctoral Consortium Application Deadline: January 31, 2021 February 28, 2021, 11:59 pm EDT.

Plenary Session Submissions:
Please follow the regular submission procedure for the Journal of International Accounting Research outlined at: https://aaahq.org/Research/Journals/Section-Journal-Home-Pages/Journal-of-International-Accounting-Research. The regular submission fee of $250 will be waived. Please ignore Step 1 of the submission process (Pay submission fee online) and, when asked during the submission process to the journal for a payment number, write “waived.” Accepted Plenary Session papers will be published in the Journal of International Accounting Research conditional on satisfactory responses to reviewer and editor comments. Additionally, for accepted papers, the conference will waive the registration fee for one presenting author. Authors submitting to JIAR in this way should include two statements in their cover letter to the senior editor: (1) that they wish to have the paper considered for the JIAR Conference Plenary Session; and (2) whether they would like the paper to be considered for inclusion in a Concurrent Session in the event it is not selected for the Plenary Session. Please contact the senior editor, Steve Lin, at swlin@memphis.edu with any questions about the submission and review process.
