The program consists of a keynote address followed by paper presentations (up to 5 papers depending on the quality of the submissions) with discussants for each paper. The Symposium provides a platform for academics undertaking inter disciplinary research in accounting, economics, law, and corporate governance to present cutting-edge research findings and exchange insightful perspectives. Although we encourage papers from Australia, New Zealand, and Asia, we will be open to high quality papers from other regions. The papers will be considered as submissions to the Journal.

Papers accepted for the symposium will be published in the JCAE, subject to satisfactory revision and acceptance by the Editors.

The Journal retains the option to consider some submissions that are not accepted for presentation at the Symposium. The authors will be notified if that is the case.

A one-hour session at the end of program will be devoted to discussing research issues in interdisciplinary research led by a panel of senior academics Chaired by Professor Ferdinand A Gul, University of the Sunshine Coast. ECRs and PhD students are encouraged to attend this session to obtain some insights on how and when to integrate various theories and empirical work from fields such as marketing, management and psychology to accounting.  

Please see the full call for papers for more details.  All submissions should be made by 1 April 2023.


Accountability in a Sustainable World Conference
September 20 & 21, 2023


The third annual Accountability in a Sustainable World conference will again coincide with the Sustainable Investment Forum, North America (SINVNA) in conjunction with the United Nations Environmental Program Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI). The conference will include 12 plenary speeches, 4 panel discussions, and 12 contributed talks. In order to minimize the carbon footprint and to accommodate as many delegates as possible, these sessions will be presented virtually.

Speakers will have the opportunity to publish their talk or a paper in an upcoming issue of Accountability in a Sustainable World Quarterly (ASWQ), the first peer reviewed sustainability journal to deliver academic content to the broader business and academic audiences. The goal of the journal and the conference is to form a firm foundation for the exchange of ideas about pressing questions which have the potential to be answered/informed by academic research.

Contributed talks are sought from academics and practitioners. Practitioners are asked to pose questions they believe should be on the academics’ research agendas and academics are asked to present aspects of their research that are particularly informative to a wide cross-section of practitioners. Submissions of a summary (2,000 to 4,000 words) of the talk are sought. The Editors of the journal will choose the 12 most suitable submissions. Accepted submissions will be presented at the conference and published in the journal. Other submissions may be considered for future issues of the journal. Submission of practitioner-friendly versions of research that has been published in the leading academic journals is encouraged. Consistent with the goals of ASWQ, publication of these summaries increases the impact of the original work by exposing it to a wider readership base.

The founding editors of ASWQ recognize the continued urgent need for dialogue among academics and practitioners about sustainability, accountability, measurement, assurance of the measures, data to inform (responsible) investment decisions and accountability in setting personal, corporate and public sector goals. The aim of ASWQ is to meet this need.

The goals are to

  1. build and strengthen the links between academia (both teaching and research) and practice,
  2. encourage younger academics by providing an opportunity to present their work to both other academics and practitioners, and
  3. provide opportunities for practitioners to communicate with academics and influence their work.

The journal is cross-disciplinary, with a focus on measurement, assurance of the measurements, and use of the measures. Articles will be short (2,000 to 4,000 words) and written by academics and practitioners with the intended readership comprising both of these groups.
ASWQ advances the creation and dissemination of knowledge and understanding of issues of topical practical relevance through the publication of rigorous, peer-reviewed, research and thought-pieces written by cutting edge academics and practitioners. The main focus of the peer-review process will be on the authenticity of the results, claims, and conclusions in the paper.
The most important features of published papers are topics related to climate change, ESG, CSR, and sustainability reporting provided that: 

  • The findings are of interest to and useful for accounting and investment practitioners
  • The findings have inference and application to an accounting and investment management audience beyond a particular region or sector
  • The exposition is not excessively theoretical or technical, although some technical presentation may sometimes be necessary
  • The arguments incorporate practical considerations, such as implementation, relevance to regulators and standard setters, implications for preparers, auditors and users of reports etc.

Where possible, alternative and supported opinions will be published in the same issue or consecutive issues In addition to submissions of work that has not been published elsewhere, submissions may be non-technical expositions of technical work that have been published in journals where the primary audience is academics.

Please submit papers via email to on or before May 31, 2023. A non-refundable submission fee of $200 must be received within 10 business days of submission. For further details on the submission process, visit Direct all questions to

Meditari Accountancy Research

Accounting as technical, social and moral practice for shaping a better world

This Special Issue is concerned with accounting as a combined technical, social and moral practice with an overarching concern for shaping a better world from tomorrow, including by means of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other key mechanism.  This special issue aims to facilitate the focus of minds around the effects of accounting, whether intended or unintended; accounting may have narrow premises or roles or potentially concerning consequences for the world we pass on to our children and future generations. 

The last date for submission of papers for consideration for publication in this Meditari Accountancy Research Special is 16 June 2023.  All details are available HERE

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and sustainability accounting: Opportunities and Challenges for public, non-governmental and hybrid sector organisations

Special issue call for papers from Journal of Public Budgeting, Accounting, and Financial Management

What is this special issue about?

The adoption of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations in 2015 has been a well-received and globally accepted iteration of the sustainable development agenda (Abhayawansa et al., 2021; Adams et al., 2020; Bebbington and Unerman, 2018). With 17 holistic goals and 169 targets, the SDG agenda aspires to stimulate action in areas that are of critical importance for humanity and the planet including hunger, poverty, inequality, health and well-being, clean energy and quality education (United Nations, 2015). Given the critical importance of SDGs, this initiative has drawn considerable attention in the policy debate and research. A number of conceptual studies have set the agenda and directions for advancing and achieving SDGs and the role of accounting and finance therein. However, little is known about how organisations, especially in the public, non-governmental and hybrid sectors are addressing and implementing the SDG goals and targets, and account for sustainability performance
