Call for Submissions
Although we remain hopeful of holding our Midyear Meeting in-person January 7-9 in Portland, if the meeting needs to be held virtually, the MAS is committed to doing so at a very low cost for our members. Accordingly, we encourage you to submit your manuscripts for the meeting!
The deadline for submission of manuscripts for the conference is extended to Monday, August 31, 2020 (midnight ET). There will be a $50 submission fee.
The Management Accounting Section encourages submissions of papers from all areas of management accounting research, including all paradigms and theoretical foundations (e.g., sociology, psychology, economics) and all research methods (e.g., analytical, archival, case-based, interviews, experimental, survey). We also encourage submission of early working papers, particularly those by junior faculty and doctoral student members from all countries.
The Midyear Meeting relies on volunteers to review submissions. Where possible, each manuscript is assigned two reviewers. Based on past experience, over 300 scholars from around the world will be invited to review submissions and nearly 100 scholars will serve as a discussant. Authors of submitted manuscripts will automatically be added to the pool of potential reviewers. In addition, scholars may volunteer as a reviewer in the submission system. If called upon to review, please consider accepting the invitation and providing a high-quality review. Outstanding reviewers will be recognized at the conference. The conference also requires nearly 100 scholars to serve as a discussant. You can volunteer to serve as a reviewer and discussant through this submission system.
In the submission website, you will be able to choose between two formats:
Research Paper: Papers selected for this format will be presented in a concurrent session with discussant. The authors will have 15 minutes to present the paper and discussants will have 10 minutes to share their comments. The last 5 minutes will be reserved for Q&A.
Research Exhibition: The research exhibition sessions will take place during the coffee breaks on Friday and Saturday. Presenters will have a display board (black) at their disposal with a size of 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide.
The selection of manuscripts for the conference will be announced in October 2020.
Please note: The Midyear Meeting planning committee remains vigilant in assessing the potential for modifying the format of this year’s meeting due to a variety of factors, including the impact of COVID-19 on travel and on the operating situation of many colleges and universities. We will remain in contact with our membership as the meeting approaches with planning updates.
