Making the Case for the Social Sciences: Accounting & Finance
The 13th edition of the Making the Case for the Social Sciences booklet is now complete and we are delighted that it was formally launched in an event at the House of Commons on 10 May 2018 by the Right Honorable Elizabeth Truss, First Secretary to the Treasury. Representatives of BAFA and BAR, politicians, policy makers and Fellows of the Academy of Social Sciences (AcSS) attended a lively event. The chair or the event was Professor Shamit Saggar, chair of the Campaign for Social Sciences. Anne Stafford and John Wilson presented their cases—sadly not all contributors could present at what was a short lunch-time meeting!
Accounting and Finance Impact Cases from REF2014
The UK’s research assessment exercise REF2014 featured units of assessment submitting impact case studies to illustrate the impact that research has on society. Members of the BAFA Executive have identified 67 impact cases from the REF2014 website that illustrate the impact of accounting and finance research. These cases were submitted to sub-panel 19 (Business & Management) in REF2014.
