The Ninth International Conference of the JIAR

Call for Submissions

The Ninth International Conference of the Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR) will be held June 23-24, 2022, preceded by the JIAR Doctoral / New Faculty Consortium on June 22, 2022. Although we had hoped to be in person, we are happy to announce that we can meet in a virtual setting that 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 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) and using a variety of research methods. Papers using exclusively U.S. data need to clearly discuss the implications for and relevance to international accounting research. Papers can be submitted for consideration in one of two tracks: Plenary Session submissions or Concurrent Session submissions. We especially encourage submissions from new accounting researcher and doctoral students.
