Authors do not have to pay the conference fee in order to submit their paper. Each individual is limited to one personal appearance on the program as a presenting author. In other words, an author can submit and present only one paper. However a presenter can always be a non-presenting co-author on additional papers. Authors are invited to submit full papers. The deadline for the submission of papers is Saturday, 30th March 2019, 12:00 noon GMT. A full paper is a complete scholarly research report that could reasonably be submitted for publication in a public working paper data base such as SSRN.


Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process by the Scientific Committee. So please do not include any type of information that can identify you. No name, no address, no e-mail address, no acknowledgements or thanks should appear in your paper. Information typically provided on a cover page should only be entered on the on-line submission form. The first page of your paper should include the title of your paper, the abstract and the keywords. Your manuscript is advised to use the Accounting Review format and there is no limit to the number of pages.


Papers can only be submitted electronically via the website provided by Taiwan Accounting Association abbreviated “2019 KAA and AAAs.” Abstracts will be included in the conference book, so they should not exceed 250 words. Papers received by postal mail, fax or in writing will not be considered. Papers should be submitted in English. The official language of the AAAs Conference is English. Therefore, all translations and the use of translation equipment during the conference is prohibited. Confirmation of acceptance or rejection by the Scientific Committee will be given after 29th April 2019 and mailed to the corresponding e-mail address of the presenting author, together with the designation to session types.


Selected relevant papers will be assigned either to APJAE sessions or regular concurrent sessions. Each selected paper for APJAE sessions will be individually discussed by one designated expert in the area. If your paper is accepted for APJAE sessions, you are expected to be a discussant for another paper. The decision to be included in APJAE session will be made by the Scientific Committee, taking into account the assessment made during the review process. The conference will run 4 APJAE sessions, each including 3 papers, which will be subject to special selection process whereby up to 3 best conference papers will be chosen from 12 presented papers. The authors of papers not included in APJAE sessions may choose to present in the regular concurrent sessions. The best paper award carries with a cash prize of US$400 and engraved plaques for the authors of the winning paper. The winners will be announced and recognized at the Conference.
