Preparatory Virtual Workshops

To help support the authors develop their work for submission to the Special Issue, the Guest Editors will organise two online workshops during 2024 where they will invite draft papers or extended abstracts. The sessions will provide an opportunity for authors to gather feedback prior to formal submission in early 2025. Those wishing to present at the online workshops should contact the Guest Editors via e-mail (addresses listed above). Further details about the online workshops will be communicated in due course. Authors of selected papers from the workshops will be invited to submit their revised papers to this Special Issue, subject to the journal’s normal review processes.

Preparatory Conferences in Africa

There will also be an opportunity to interact with the Guest Editors as part of Special Track sessions (subject to confirmation) at the 13th African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) Conference in Harare, Zimbabwe (September 2024) and/or at the 1st CSEAR Africa Conference in Nigeria (November 2024). See the call for papers to the 1st CSEAR Africa Conference.
