CIGAR Newsletter April 2019

We open with Sheila Ellwood’s Editorial, which offers fresh insight into “Controversies and Topical Issues in Public Sector Accounting”. Our colleague summarises her presentation made at a symposium on the Future of Financial Reporting, organised by the British Accounting and Finance Association Special Interest Group on Financial Accounting and Reporting, hosted by the ACCA in London. Surely food for thought – in line with our series of Editorials!

Three conferences are announced on page 3. Information is given about:

  • · Charities, nonprofits and NGOs: (re)building trust and legitimacy (Belfast, September 2019);
  • · Public Sector Economics 2019 – Wealth and property taxation: where do we stand? (Zagreb, October 2019);
  • · NPM – the Final Word, New Public Sector Seminar (Edinburgh, November 2019).

Two calls for papers for special issues are presented at page 4:

  • · AAAJ invites manuscripts about Accounting and Performance Challenges in Hybrid Organizations: case studies. Deadline for full paper submission is December 15, 2019; info from the guest editors Giuseppe Grossi (This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • · The Journal of Accounting in Emerging Economies (JAEE) aims to extend the contextual understanding of public sector accounting, auditing and budgeting practices and reforms in Emerging Economies, and therefore invites paper for a special issue. Deadline: October 31, 2019. Info from the guest editors Jan van Helden (This email address is being protected from spambots.

As a last point, let us draw your attention on two publications stemming from previous CIGAR events (page 2):

  • · a Special Issue of Tékhne: Review of Applied Management Studies, collecting one editorial and four papers presented at the 16th Biennial CIGAR Conference, Porto, 2017
  • · the book Public Sector Accounting, Auditing and Control in South Eastern Europe, due for publication next month, edited by Vesna Vašiček and Gorana Roje, and strictly linked to the last CIGAR workshop (Zagreb 2018).

Clearly, the next Conference, to be held in Amsterdam on June 13-14, will also be very rich in opportunities to discuss research issues and to publish: so may we simply recall you about the Conference website www.cigar2019.nl and its email This email address is being protected from spambots.
