The grants will be awarded by an academic advisory committee comprising representatives from IPSASB and the academic community, based on abstracts submitted by 15 December 2019 31 December 2019 (deadline extended). Abstracts should be one-page summaries of the planned approach to the topic selected by the scholar (or group of scholars). Decisions on the award of grants will be taken by 15 January 2020. Scholars who wish to submit a paper without receiving a grant are obviously free to do so. The deadline for submission of draft accepted papers is 10 May 2020.
Submission process and registration
Participants in the IPSASB Research Forum are expected to follow the registration procedure for the CIGAR Workshop.
The grant recipients, as well as other scholars, will present the first drafts of their full papers at the 2020 Research Forum, in order to receive feedback from fellow academics, IPSASB members and staff. Grant recipients are then expected to finalize their paper by 8 September 2020 and to present it in the week of 15 September 2020 at the IPSAS Board Meeting in Paris, France. Final papers are invited to be published in Public Money & Management, after undergoing a formal peer review process, involving one reviewer from CIGAR and one from IPSASB
