Global Emerging Scholars Research Workshop

Aug 11, 2024
Washington DC, USA
May 15, 2024

Hello everyone,


I hope this message finds you well.  Thank you for being part of the AAA Global Gathering community. We want to let you know about a wonderful opportunity for global scholars who are in the early stage of their research careers. Please review the information below and encourage your early-stage scholars to submit their work-in-progress papers.


Every year at the Annual Meeting, the AAA hosts the Global Emerging Scholars Research Workshop for scholars who are in the early stage of their research careers and is primarily focused on helping early career stage accounting scholars based in emerging countries. The workshop will be held all day on Sunday, August 11, 2024, in conjunction with the Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. The submission deadline is May 15, 2024.


The main objective of the workshop is to help scholars who do not have local senior leadership to develop their research. The scholars who will attend the workshop will present their papers and receive constructive feedback from senior mentors and their fellow scholars. Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to interact with renowned scholars of international standing and with fellow early career researchers. In addition, the workshop will provide a platform for discussion of research ideas and issues that potentially lead to future collaboration among attendees.


Up to 8 proposals will be selected for presentation at the Workshop. Written feedback will be provided to the presenters prior to the Workshop to assist them in identifying ways to improve their research proposal. At the Workshop, each scholar will present the proposal, followed by discussion by a senior researcher as mentor who will also provide constructive feedback, and then further discussion of the proposal by the presenter, other senior scholars as mentors, and the other early career researchers.
