THE CIGAR NETWORK’S THIRD ANNUAL ISSUE OF PUBLIC MONEY & MANAGEMENT

We are pleased to launch the call for papers for the third CIGAR-PMM Annual Issue, which shall be featured in 2023: PMM’s volume 43. The CIGAR annual issue is not tied to a particular theme—the aim is to present relevant empirical and theoretical research in public sector accounting, and to showcase CIGAR’s valuable papers in order to increase their contribution to practice and to academia. CIGAR is inviting all scholars who participate in CIGAR events, or who have a significant interest in CIGAR’s research agenda, to submit papers for consideration of publication in the third CIGAR annual issue. Current research themes include: developments in public sector accounting and auditing; management accounting and performance measurement in public sector entities; improving reporting systems for citizens and other stakeholders through, for example, popular reporting, integrated reporting, and sustainability reporting; the impact of digital transformation on the control and accountability of public sector entities; international harmonization and the role of international (or regional) standards;  the role of public sector entities and financial reporting systems in promoting plans and action for the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

These examples are not exhaustive. Other themes, which are capturing the attention of single researchers or of research teams, are also welcome. Any type of research methodology is acceptable - both qualitative and quantitative studies. As with all PMM issues, the CIGAR Annual Issue will also include Debates and New Development articles. 

Papers for consideration should be submitted by 30 September 2022 through PMM’s electronic submission system:  https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rpmm20/current, selecting “CIGAR special issue”. 

The first CIGAR-PMM Annual Issue featuring in PMM Volume 46, Issue 6, 2021 is found at https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rpmm20/41/6?nav=tocList
