Dear Colleagues,

It is our greatest pleasure to invite you to attend the European Accounting Association’s 46th Annual Congress, on May 15-17, 2024, in Bucharest, Romania. 4 years later than the original plan, due to circumstances outside of our control, we are working very diligently to finally host you in our beautiful city and country, for a long overdue great event.

We have already launched our website, where you will find useful information about Romania, Bucharest, the host university (Bucharest University of Economic Studies), as well as the congress venues.

The deadline for paper submission is set to December 1st, 2023, following the usual calendar of EAA congresses. Submission is made via the congress website, here.

The congress will be held at two 5-star hotels located in the city center, namely the InterContinental Athénée Palace and the Radisson Blu Hotel Bucharest. The congresses’ Doctoral Colloquium will take place on May 11-14, 2024, at the Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Bucharest Convention Center Hotel, in Northern Bucharest.

Three spectacular and quite unique locations were selected to host this year’s social events: Manuc’s Inn (Ro: Hanu’ lui Manuc) will host the Early Bird reception; NORD Events by Globalworth will host the Welcome Reception; and the Palace of the Parliament will host the Gala Dinner and Party.

Place of the Royal Court of Prince Vlad Țepes, the alleged inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula character, Bucharest was attested since the 15th Century to become the world’s first capital city to be lit with gas lamps, in 1857. Nicknamed “Little Paris of the East”, nowadays Bucharest is Romania's largest city, serves as the nation’s capital and home to approximately two million people. The city is made up of numerous architectural styles and is a juxtaposition of influences belonging to various epochs and cultures. The most surprising and intriguing building is the Palace of the Parliament, impressing visitors by its gigantic dimensions (the second largest administrative building in the world and the largest building in Europe). Little pedestrian streets with specialist coffee shops and shade welcome the tourists after long walks in the parks and visits to museums.

In the meantime, for any information pertaining to the local level, please contact the local organizers at For general level information pertaining to the EAA, please contact Baha Diyarov at or the appropriate committee (see here the EAA governance structure).

We are very much looking forward to (finally!) hosting you in Bucharest, Romania, in May 2024!

Catalin Albu, Chair

On behalf of the local organizing committee

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

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 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

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.
