The Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Finance(JAAF) Conference will take place 28-31 May, 2023 at the Hanken School of Economics, Helsinki, Finland, immediately after the European Accounting Association Annual Congress. The conference is arranged in collaboration with the University of Vaasa.

Plenary Sessions

Papers accepted to the Plenary Sessions will be considered for publication in JAAF and will be reviewed according to JAAF policies. Although there is an expectation that accepted Plenary Session papers will be published in JAAF, ultimate acceptance to the journal will be determined according to JAAF’s editorial policies.

C. S. Agnes Cheng and Linda Myers will serve as Editors for Plenary Session submissions. Final journal acceptance decisions will be made in consultation with Xiao-Jun Zhang (JAAF Editor-in-chief). Papers not accepted for the Plenary Sessions will be considered for the Concurrent Sessions at the option of the submitting author and can be resubmitted to JAAF as regular new submissions.

Conference expenses for Plenary Session presenters will be covered up to the amount of $1,500 USD for one submitting author per accepted paper.

There will be a best paper award for papers presented in the Plenary Sessions.

Concurrent Sessions

Papers submitted to the Concurrent Sessions only as well as papers submitted to the Plenary Sessions that are not accepted into the Plenary Sessions will be reviewed by Prof. Minna Martikainen and the local program committee (in consultation with the Editor-in-chief). Papers submitted to the Concurrent Sessions only can be submitted to JAAF as regular new submissions at a later date.

There will be two best paper awards for Concurrent Session papers, one for PhD student papers and one for other papers. In the submission, please indicate if any of the authors are PhD students.
