APAC awards

Vernon Zimmerman Best Paper Awards

The best three regular accepted papers will each be awarded USD$500 to be selected by a panel of distinguished reviewers. In addition, the best doctoral student paper will also be awarded USD$500.


The conference is partnering with journals for possible publication of papers presented at the conference. Details are provided below:

Accounting Research Journal (ARJ)

The Editors of Accounting Research Journal (ARJ) invite presenters of papers at the conference to submit, post the conference, their paper for publication in ARJ.  Normal criteria for publication will apply but conference papers will receive a fast track review. If there are a sufficient number of papers the Editors will consider producing a special issue for the papers from the conference. ARJ embraces a range of methodological approaches in identifying and solving significant emergent problems and accounting issues. Submissions are encouraged across all areas on accounting, finance and cognate disciplines.

International Journal of Business (IJB)

The Editors of the International Journal of Business (IJB) offer, for 5-6 outstanding papers submitted for presentation at the conference, publication opportunities in their journal. All accepted papers at the 32nd Asian-Pacific Conference will be eligible for consideration.

Continuing Professional Education Credits

Participants in past conferences have earned up to 16 hours of CPE credits.
