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

AUSTRALIAN ACCOUNTING REVIEW (AAR)
The Editors of Australian Accounting Review (AAR) invite presenters of papers at the conference to indicate whether they would like their paper to be considered for publication in AAR. Normal criteria for publication will apply but conference papers will receive an early indication of their suitability for publication in this journal. If there are a sufficient number of papers, the Editors will consider producing a special issue for the papers from the conference. The scope of AAR is accounting professional practice and it includes articles on audit and assurance, communication and information systems, ethics and governance, financial reporting, management accounting, taxation, and treasury practices.

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.
