Special Issue Call for Papers
Integrated Reporting (IR) and Accounting Education
The continual evolution of corporate reporting requires teaching to keep up to date with current developments. One such area is integrated reporting that seeks to change the corporate reporting landscape, superseding other frameworks and becoming a corporate reporting norm. Integrated reporting (IR) is most often associated with the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and its 6 capitals, but other forms of reporting exist that cover more than just financial reporting that extend the corporate reporting agenda towards issues such as environmental, social and governance. Thus, integrated reporting education can take many different forms, in a number of contexts. This special issue is on how the IIRC or the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other frameworks are being taught and evaluated for those taking accounting degrees or seeking to enter the accounting profession.
Accounting Education invites submissions to this special issue that must be original pieces of work with a clear connection to integrated reporting and education. Research topics appropriate for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following themes:
- Teaching methods of IR in different countries and jurisdictions
- The development of curricula regarding IR
- Practice in the classroom including case studies on IR
- Professional and Executive education on IR
- Critical assessment of IR integration into degree programs
- Embedding IR into corporate reporting courses
- Innovative methods of teaching IR
- Teaching IR across the three sectors of private, public and not-for profit
Submissions for this special issue close on 31 January 2020. Early submissions are welcome. Submissions should be made electronically in accordance with Accounting Education’s policies and style.
