AFAANZ is devoted to a broad spectrum of accounting and finance research and we welcome innovative research approaches as well as those that are well established. 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. There are best paper prizes in all categories and outstanding reviewer awards. All papers at this year’s conference will be subject to blind peer review. AFAANZ encourages new and developing researchers to attend the conference.
AFAANZ is currently finalising the conference format (face-to-face, online or a hybrid of these approaches), but if it is held face-to-face or in hybrid form, it will be held in the Crown, Melbourne. The two plenary speakers at the conference will be:
- Professor Wai Fong Chua, Professor of Accounting, The University of Sydney
- Professor Stephen Penman, George O. May Professor of Financial Accounting, Columbia Business School (Yuji Ijiri memorial lecture)
SPECIAL ISSUE: This year, the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money (JIFMIM) will hold concurrent sessions at the conference and papers can be later submitted to their special issue, addressing the topics of Environmental Social and Governance, Green Finance and Investment, Corporate Governance, Exchange Rates and Asset Prices. The papers eligible for consideration at JIFMIM must have a clear international dimension and ideally test economic theory in an international setting. Note that JIFMIM no longer publishes papers on US markets or other single country studies, which take a domestic focus, or papers that investigate commodity, herding, and housing market impacts and interactions. Similarly, for the purposes of this special issue, papers on cryptocurrencies will not be considered.
