We invite submissions of original papers addressing topical research questions with capital market implications and related to any of the following areas: financial reporting, corporate disclosure (including non-financial information disclosure), corporate finance and corporate governance.
We encourage submissions aiming to generate new insights by exploiting international differences in economic systems, legal institutions and regulatory frameworks as determinants of accounting, finance and governance outcomes. We are open to theoretical papers that have clear predictions motivating new empirical tests and/or explanations of existing empirical regularities. We are also interested in comprehensive and critical
surveys of international research in our areas of interest.
Original papers should be submitted at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jbfa no later than 30 November 2019. Conference submissions will be treated as submissions to JBFA (and, hence, require a $200 submission fee). Papers will be refereed and decisions on
accepted papers should be conveyed to authors by the middle of March 2020. Preference will be given to quality papers expected to stimulate interesting conference discussion. Subject to satisfactory revision, accepted conference papers will be published in a special Conference Issue of JBFA in 2021.
Conference attendance is by invitation only.
The Conference will start in the evening of 20 May 2020 with an Early Bird reception. Hotel accommodation for the nights of 20-21 May will be provided for one author of each selected conference paper. All conference participants will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements.
