Plenary Session Submissions

Papers submitted to the Plenary Sessions will be considered for publication in the Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Finance (JAAF). All papers submitted for this track will be reviewed according to JAAF policies. While there is an expectation that accepted Plenary Session papers will be published in the Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Finance, ultimate acceptance to the journal will be determined according to JAAF’s editorial policies. Editors for Plenary Session submissions will be C.S. Agnes Cheng and Linda Myers. Final acceptance decisions for the journal will be made in consultation with Bharat Sarath (JAAF Editor-in-chief).

Papers not accepted to the Plenary Sessions may be considered as Concurrent Session submissions at the option of the submitting author. Authors should indicate whether the submission should be considered for Plenary Sessions only or both Plenary Sessions and Concurrent Sessions in the cover letter at the time of submission.

Conference expenses (for registration fees, transportation, and up to four nights’ accommodation) for plenary paper presenters will be covered up to the amount of $1,500 USD for one submitting author per plenary paper.

Papers not accepted as Plenary Session papers may be given an opportunity to revise and resubmit for publication in the journal. In addition, some rejected papers may be given an opportunity to resubmit to the journal as new submissions.
