CALL FOR PAPERS

Accounting standards (IFRS/US GAAP/Local GAAP) are complex and complete rules that address how economic transactions should be reported on companies’ annual reports. A series of actors (external and internal auditors, market regulators, audit committees) are also in charge to monitor the correct implementation of accounting standards. Despite that, accounting scandals are still observed nowadays.

Literature on accounting scandals is important and is based on different approaches and research methodologies. All types of methodologies will be appreciated.

The workshop aims to explore practices and practitioners behind accounting scandals under different perspectives and to bring out new research questions on this area.

Papers on the following areas are welcome:

  - accounting standards weaknesses
  - standard setter, auditor and accountant behaviours
  - internal control deficiencies
  - accountant professionalization
  - legitimacy of standards
  - failure of monitoring tools
  - learning objectives of accounting education
  - enforcement of accounting standards
  - incentives and sanctions for accounting scandals
  - Effect of ethics and fraud training

To be eligible for presentation, manuscripts written in English must be submitted through the here. Both long abstracts (300-700 words) and full papers will be considered in the selection. Extended abstracts should include, at least, the purpose/aims of paper and its originality and intended contribution.

All papers will be presented and discussed in several plenary sessions (each selected paper will have 15 minutes of presentation and 30 minutes of discussion). A discussant will be appointed to each presentation.

The submission deadline is over !
