A Special Issue on Sustainable Finance

Sustainable finance seeks to create long-term value by tackling global issues such as climate change, pollution, depletion of natural resources, and social inequality, to name a few. The efficiency of capital markets plays a crucial role in facilitating sustainable finance. By efficiently directing capital towards sustainability goals, capital markets can promote sustainability in business operations, investment, and corporate governance. Sustainability-oriented investors can also exert pressure on companies, demanding that corporate managers focus more on sustainability goals, ultimately benefiting all stakeholders.

Given its significance, it is not surprising that sustainable finance has become an important topic. Yet, research in this area remains relatively nascent, leaving both academics and practitioners eager to gain a deeper understanding of these issues at both regional and global scales. In this context, Accounting and Finance is launching a Special Issue on Sustainable Finance.

We welcome all aspects of research in sustainable finance, including theoretical and empirical studies. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, corporate finance, asset pricing and derivatives, behavioural finance, and financial markets.

SAMPJ Special Issue - The use of technology by organizations to enhance social and environmental sustainability

Many organizations currently consider transformative change to create opportunities for a better quality of life and a sustainable future (Linnenluecke et al., 2017; Lee and Trimi, 2018). Digital technologies often provide opportunities to achieve these goals in new ways, e.g. through the internet-of-things (IoT) and blockchain technology (De Villiers et al., 2021). Apart from bringing new solutions, digitalization also challenges the business environment (Vial, 2019). These challenges require increasing interaction with digital technologies entailing transformation in many different ways (Van Veldhoven and Vanthienen, 2019).  Submissions open on 1 February 2024

Pacific Accounting Review

More than a decade ago, the Pacific Accounting Review opened a new chapter in accounting research with the special issue "The Pacific Odyssey." It pioneered an in-depth exploration of the role and impact of accounting in the South Pacific, sparking numerous conversations and research endeavors. In this special issue, we aim to retrace our steps, examining the strides made since our first Pacific Odyssey and identifying the gaps that still need to be filled. We invite accounting academics to contribute their original research and fresh perspectives, assessing the progress made over the past decade and highlighting the areas that warrant further investigation. This special issue aims to reassess and deepen our understanding of accounting's role in the South Pacific, its impact on the region, and the accountability it fosters within the unique socio-economic structures that characterize this part of the world.

An online talanoa session (conversation) will take place in November 2023. In this talanoa, authors can briefly discuss their study and get participant feedback. All papers wishing to be considered for the special issue should be submitted via Pacific Accounting Review's online manuscript submission system by June 2024.   All details can be found HERE


Special Issue on Digital technology and corporate reporting

Regulators have introduced digital corporate reporting mandates worldwide and now require firms in significant jurisdictions, including the US, EU, Japan, UK and China, to submit digital corporate financial reports (Troshani & Rowbottom, 2022). More recently, developments in 'sustainability' reporting standardisation indicate that digital technology will be utilised in standardising, disseminating and regulating sustainability reports (European Commission, 2021; European Council, 2022; IFRS Foundation, 2022; US SEC, 2022). 

Guest editors

  • Professor Indrit Troshani,
  • Dr Nick Rowbottom

Submission opens 1st July 2024, Close October 1 2024. 

This AAAJ special issue calls for research manuscripts investigating how the introduction of digital technology influences how corporate reports are prepared, used, standardised and assured. We broadly define the scope of corporate reporting to include financial and non-financial, sustainability reporting that entities provide to information users voluntarily or in response to statutory requirements.

Journal of Public Budgeting, Accounting & Financial Management

Special issue on

Climate Change Accounting, Reporting and Account-ability: Responses by Governments, Not-for-Profit Organisations and Charities

Despite the proliferation of research on sustainability accounting and ac-countability, only recently have accounting researchers started to focus on issues relating to climate reporting, investment and accountability in great-er depth in the public sector. This is perhaps unsurprising, given that the importance of paying attention to climate change within public management research has only just begun to be recognized. However, few accounting scholars have highlighted the role of public budgeting in addressing climate-related challenges and the fact that this requires significant financial resources.

Public sector organizations, charities and other civil society institutions can play an important role in promoting climate resilience and sustainable development. However, despite a growing interest in exploring how the public sector can contribute to climate change initiatives, the existing literature is yet to conceptualize and extend our understanding of climate accounting, reporting and accountability in the public sector. Given the gaps in the ex-tant accounting literature, the guest editors of this JPBAFM special issue would like to invite high quality research papers that provide evidence-based accounts of climate change mitigation and adaptation that will help to extend our understanding of climate accounting, reporting and account-ability by central, regional, or local governments, charities and not-for-profit organizations.

A workshop on the above research themes will be held at the Essex Business School in June 2024 (date will be announced in due course) at which potential authors can present their work. However, a presentation at this workshop will not be a prerequisite for submission to the special issue. Authors interested in presenting at the workshop must submit an extended abstract by emailing Prof. Pawan Adhikari at padhik@essex.ac.uk by 31 May 2024.

Paper submission is open from September 2024 to 31 December 2024. Guest editors of this special issue are Pawan Adhikari, Bedanand Upadhaya, Chaminda Wijethilake, Zlatinka Blaber, and Wei Qian. More information is available HERE


Call for Papers

Engaging with Responsible Science – An Ongoing Initiative in Pre-registered Research

PBFJ is actively embracing and fostering the principles of responsible science, captured by three central pillars: Credible research, Relevant research, and Independent research. As part of this commitment, we issue an ongoing call for research that engages a “pre-registration” design.

Pre-Registration in a Nutshell

The pre-registration process focuses on accepting proposed projects based on innovative ideas (clearly linked to finance research questions), highly capable expert research teams, and frontier “gold standard” techniques that promise to deliver credible and reliable knowledge. The primary evaluation occurs before the research has been conducted, ensuring that the decision to publish is not affected by the significance or direction of the results but rather by the importance of the research question and the strength of the methods.

Four-Phase Process

  1. Expressions of Interest: We invite expressions of interest as the first step in a 4-phase process of pre-registration studies.

  2. Pitch: Approved teams are invited to pitch their idea in 1,000 words.

  3. Pre-registered Report: For approved pitches, teams are invited to create a detailed pre-analysis plan (before any data are collected), which will be peer reviewed. Accepted reports will be published stand-alone in PBFJ.

  4. Pre-registered Study: For accepted pre-registered reports, teams are invited to execute the study under the status of “in principle accept”.  These fully executed studies will undergo peer review, primarily to ensure adherence to the agreed protocol. Accepted studies will be published in PBFJ as companions to their matching reports.

For further details (including eligibility and submission details), please refer to the full editorial note.
