This workshop is organised by the BAFA Special Interest Group on Accounting and Finance in Emerging Economies (AFEE) and Southampton Business School; Centre for Research in Accounting, Accountability and Governance (CRAAG). This workshop will focus on crafting quantitative research papers on accounting with an emphasis on research carried out in the context of emerging economies. The workshop will include a forum for discussion and sharing practical experience with experienced professors in accounting. The aim of this workshop is to equip participants with key skills required to produce a research paper and prepare it for submission to a peer-reviewed journal. In particular, the workshop aims to provide participants with skills required to write research motivation, research problems and research contributions, highlight the different approaches in choosing your research method and dealing with data related to emerging economies. Finally, this workshop will provide participants with the skills in writing-up and discussing their research findings in a way that can generate interest and eventual publication.

Papers submitted need not be at the stage of near completion in anticipation of submission to a journal, but they must contain the basic plan, argument, literature review, theory adopted, research methods, empirical analysis and conclusions.
