Call for Submissions

We welcome submissions of papers addressing auditing, attestation, and assurance topics, including all paradigms and theoretical foundations (e.g., sociology, psychology, economics) and all research methods (e.g., analytical, archival, experimental, qualitative). Authors will automatically be added to the pool of potential reviewers.

Submitted manuscripts should follow the style and submission guidelines of Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, except the requirement to submit separate electronic files. The conference submission system only allows you to upload one file, which should contain the body of your paper and should not contain a cover page or file name with any author-related information.

Papers are not eligible for submission if they: 1) have been published or accepted for publication, 2) were presented at the 2021 AAA Annual Meeting, or 3) were presented at more than one AAA regional meeting or other academic conference.
The submission deadline is 11:59 pm EDT on August 25, 2021, and there is a non-refundable $50 submission fee. The submission process includes two steps:
