Call for Papers:Special issue on: Business Globalisation: Accounting and Auditing, Corporate Governance, Ethics and Management

Int. J. of Economics and Business Research

Special issue on: «Business Globalisation: Accounting and Auditing, Corporate Governance, Ethics and Management»

Guest Editor:
Dr. Victoria Krivogorsky, San Diego State University, USA

The growing internationalisation of markets, the relaxation of constraints on capital flows between countries and the creation of different economic unions initiated the flow of capital, goods and services across national borders, growth and diffusion of shareholding, as well as increasing merger activity among the world’s largest stock exchanges. These changes have created interest in understanding the merits of new developments in accounting, auditing, corporate governance and management to a new qualitative level.

In spite of the importance of research on the merits of new developments in accounting, auditing, corporate governance and management, not many studies take a holistic approach to these issues. It is the aim of this special issue to fill a vacant niche for something that combines a variety of different aspects related to new developments in all of these business disciplines associated with globalisation.

The issue deliberately encourages a broad view of the origins and development of business, accounting and management with an emphasis on their functions in an increasingly interdependent global economy, and welcomes manuscripts that explain current international business practices, with related theoretical justifications, and identify the criticisms of current practices.

Subject Coverage

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:

  • Harmonisation of accounting
  • Auditing
  • Corporate governance
  • Capital market research
  • Accounting information systems
  • Business strategy
  • Global leadership
  • Social responsibility
  • Corporate ethics
  • Sustainability
  • Management and entrepreneurship
  • Electronic financial reporting
  • Information transparency
  • Business information supply chains

Notes for Prospective Authors

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was not originally copyrighted and if it has been completely re-written).

All papers are refereed through a peer review process. A guide for authors, sample copies and other relevant information for submitting papers are available on the Author Guidelines page.

 In addition to the double-blind peer review evaluation, submitted articles will also be evaluated in terms of contribution-to-length ratio. Articles making strong contributions should be about 10,000 words; those making narrower contributions no more than 5,000 words. Manuscripts considerably longer than the lengths identified in these guidelines will be returned immediately without review.

Emerging scholars are especially encouraged to submit their work (identify the submission as Young Scholars Track).

Important Dates

Submissions deadline: 20 August, 2013
