Call for Papers

This is the call for papers for the 2019 AFAANZ Conference to be held in Brisbane, Australia. 

Papers are invited in the broad areas of accounting, finance, auditing, corporate governance, accounting information systems, accounting education, ethics, corporate social responsibility, tax and related fields. Papers should conform to the style and format of Accounting and Finance, the AFAANZ journal. All papers will be subject to blind peer review so please ensure that there are no author details mentioned in your paper.

AFAANZ is devoted to a very broad spectrum of accounting and finance research and we welcome innovative research approaches as well as those that are well established. Advantages of attending the conference include the opportunity to network with colleagues including many leading researchers in the accounting and finance disciplines, as well as developing research ideas from the plenary speakers and the many other papers presented. AFAANZ encourages new and developing researchers to attend the conference. This year again, we will extend a discount to first time AFAANZ conference attendees and full time higher degree research students.

The three plenary speakers at the conference will be:
• Wayne R. Landsman, KPMG Professor of Accounting, University of North Carolina
• Roger Simnett, Scientia Professor of Accounting, University of New South Wales
• Naomi Soderstrom, Professor of Managerial Accounting, University of Melbourne
