Submission Steps

The Call for Submissions for the AAA 2024 Management Accounting Section (MAS) Midyear Conference, January 9 – 11, 2025
The deadline for submissions to the conference Monday, August 19, 2024, at 11:59 pm EDT.

Research Submissions

The MAS 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, experimental, interviews, survey). We also encourage submission of early working papers, particularly those by junior faculty and doctoral student members from all countries.

A $50 submission fee is required and should be paid prior to submitting a manuscript. After payment, you may submit your manuscript through the electronic submissions system. During the submission process, you will be asked to provide a Submission Fee Payment Number, which you will receive via email upon completing the fee payment form.

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 and will be assigned a discussant. The authors will have 15 minutes to present the paper and the discussant will have 10 minutes to share their comments. The last 5 minutes will be reserved for Q&A.
  • Research Exhibition Posters: The research exhibition poster sessions will take place during the coffee breaks on Friday, January 10, and Saturday, January 11, 2025. 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 early October.

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.

Teaching and Practice Symposium Submissions (no submission fee will be charged)

Concurrent Sessions
Description: Concurrent sessions may encompass any topical area of managerial accounting, the latest trends in pedagogy or the profession, or emerging in-demand accounting skills (i.e., critical thinking, communication), teaching or technology topics, pedagogy, cases, or projects. Presentation length will either be 25 or 50 minutes. Note: Program organizers might request additional information about a proposed case session from the authors during the evaluation process.

“ED” Talks
Description: These will be sequences of short presentations offered in quick succession. Presenters will have ten minutes to speak using PowerPoint-based “infographic posters” or several slides, and then transition to the next presenter. The group of EdTalks will be followed by a break, allowing attendees to speak with any or all presenters in more detail after the presentations.

Presenters will share teaching/technology ideas, strategies, cases, methods, and class activities related to managerial accounting to help attendees improve teaching, connect to practice, build student engagement, develop active classroom environments, and design other approaches to enhance their teaching in the managerial accounting discipline. The EdTalk sessions are designed to be dynamic and engaging. Note: presenters must commit to submitting their short PowerPoint presentations in advance to minimize transition time between presentations.
