In 2022 the Journal of Accounting and Public Policy (JAPP) will celebrate its 40th anniversary. Hence, the 10th annual conference of the journal will be an opportunity to celebrate JAPP 40th birthday. We hope to be able to hold the conference on June 17th , 2022 at the University of Maryland's R. H. Smith School of Business, the birthplace of JAPP.
THEME: The theme of the conference will be: "Accounting and Public Policy Revisited"
We want to go back to the roots of the journal and explore the original areas of interest of the journal after 40 years. The Aims and Scope of the journal published in its opening issue are still valid today:
“…research papers focusing on the intersection between accounting and public policy. Preference is given to papers illuminating through theoretical or empirical analysis, the effects of accounting on public policy and vice-versa. Subjects treated in this journal include the interface of accounting with economics, political science, sociology, or law.”
Therefore, manuscripts examining any aspect of the intersection between accounting and public policy will be considered. Papers adopting an interesting and insightful historical approach to the topic are particularly welcome.
Papers submitted to the JAPP conference will be subject to a blind review process. Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will also be considered for publication in a special theme issue of JAPP.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Papers for the 2022 conference and special issue may be submitted through the Editorial Manager electronic platform by January 31, 2022. You can access the platform through this link.
Please make sure to submit the paper to the conference special issue by choosing the option “SI: 40 Years of JAPP” as the paper type. Conference acceptance decisions will be made by March 2022. Authors are encouraged to submit earlier than the deadline if possible and to contact Professor Marco Trombetta (firstname.lastname@example.org), should there be any matter requiring clarification and guidance.
