Digital technologies and sustainability accounting, reporting, and assurance

This Special Issue examines the impact of contemporary digital technologies, such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, blockchain and cryptocurrency, social media communication, cloud computing, and the internet of things (IoTs), to name a few, on sustainability accounting, reporting, and assurance. Such technologies are profoundly impacting the world we live in (De Villiers, Kuruppu and Dissanayake, 2021). The constant flow of innovative technologies is driving disruptive transformations across all aspects of life. These technological advancements offer considerable promise for enhancing accounting’s capacity to measure, record, analyze, and communicate an increasingly broader range of data and information necessary for supporting sustainability accounting, reporting, and assurance. Blockchain technology, for instance, provides transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain, which is of vital interest to consumers who are concerned with issues such as environmental protection, sustainability, transparency, and social responsibility (Xu et al., 2019; De Villiers et al., 2021).

Submission deadline: 28 February 2024.  All details are available HERE

Qualitative Accounting Research from a Chinese perspective

This special issue calls for research from the perspective of China’s unique rich cultural perspective and strong government influence, adopting qualitative methods of research. This call for papers does not intend to narrow submissions to particular topics but to give authentic voice to research in China by delving into the socio-political and historical aspects of accounting and auditing practice in China; and/or by conducting research informed by traditional Chinese philosophies such as Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. Qualitative approaches to research inclusive of interviews, case studies, critical discourse and documentary analysis are strongly encouraged.

Call for Chapters: Convergence of Digitalization, Innovation, and Sustainable Development in Business


The main objective and value of this book lies on the intersection of the two crucial areas, digital transformation and sustainable development, and how they operate in coherence. Our main objective in this book is to cover digital transformation from several different perspectives related to sustainable development and provide organizations a variety of digital innovative solutions and strategies, from which they can choose the ones that best suit their own requirements and sustainability strategies. As digital transformation has a substantial range of application through utilization of various technologies and tools, this book is expected to have a significant impact in both academic literature and practical applications in a diverse range of industries, from healthcare to tourism, from banking to education, from aviation to logistics, every one of which has a significant role in contributing to sustainable future. This technology-based approach to sustainable development will enable industries and academicians to realize their potential and open doors to new opportunities, while also posing new challenges to strategy makers who will need to adapt and evolve or take the risk of being disrupted.

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

Pacific-Basin Finance Journal (PBFJ) 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.
