Call for Papers: Pacific Accounting Review

Special Issue: Contemporary Issues in Taxation and Accounting


A special issue of Pacific Accounting Review focusing on contemporary issues in taxation and accounting will be published in mid-2019. Pacific Accounting Review, an international journal, publishes research into current developments in accounting and provides insight into how present practice is shaped and formed.


The special issue will explore the unique relationships between tax and accounting.  We encourage submissions on major topics of interest including, but not limited to:   

  • The interaction of accounting and taxation in organisations

  • Accounting for tax authorities versus accounting for shareholders: the rationale and effects of two sets of rules

  • The impact of tax on entrepreneurship and entities

  • Accounting and taxation in the Pacific region and in developing countries

  • The role of accounting in transfer pricing and Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) practices, reporting, and mitigation

  • Cultural and international issues in accounting and tax

  • Taxation and the evolution of financial reporting, and of the accounting profession

  • Tax fraud, avoidance and accounting

  • Interdisciplinary studies in accounting and taxation 

Pacific Accounting Review offers a unique forum for research relating to, and research from, the Pacific region. However, this special issue also welcomes original research papers which focus on other geographic areas. Submissions may draw on an array of theoretical approaches – including empirical, qualitative, theoretical and historical – and a variety of contexts.
