The co-editors of the book "Financial Sustainability of Public Sector Entities: The Relevance of Accounting Frameworks" Josette Caruana, Isabel Brusca, Eugenio Caperchione, Sandra Cohen, Francesca Manes Rossi have announced a call for chapters.

The chapters in the book should seek to answer research questions such as:

  • How can the IPSAS framework contribute towards better financial planning that supports financial sustainability?
  • To what extent can long-term financial plans meet the qualitative characteristics of financial reports as identified in the IPSASB Conceptual Framework?
  • In what ways can the measurement and recognition criteria identified in the IPSASB Conceptual Framework contribute towards realistic financial planning?
  • Which reporting frameworks may prove useful in assisting policy makers to derive appropriate measures for public services and assist their financial planning conducive to financial sustainability?
  • How can Institutions make reporting frameworks more robust so that financial reports contribute effectively towards better planning and policy making?
  • How can new reporting tools (for example, popular reporting, integrated reporting, sustainability reporting and intellectual capital reporting) be used to actively involve citizens in achieving sustainability?
  • Are accounting systems in place (for example, management accounting systems) adequate in providing information suitable for financial sustainability?
  • Are the new reporting trends suitable to provide information for sustainability?
  • Are there statistical models that would be suitable to assess the level of financial sustainability in a multifaceted way?

Chapter proposals (of between 800 and 1,200 words, including references) are expected by 1st October 2017.

The book is part of the Palgrave Macmillan book series Public Sector Financial Management
