Contemporary Accounting Research (CAR) has a well-established worldwide reputation for publishing diverse and innovative research across the entire spectrum of roles that accounting plays in markets, organizations, and society.

The 35th CAR Conference, being held in historic Halifax, Nova Scotia, will continue to celebrate this diversity and innovation. We welcome the submission of insightful and relevant research on any accounting topic, based on the rigorous application of an appropriate method.


Submission Process

Submissions to the conference are submissions to CAR, and must follow CAR’s submission processes. When submitting to the online system, choose article type “2020 CAR Conference.” Submission fees for conference papers, payable by VISA or MasterCard, are the same as submission fees for regular CAR submissions. Submissions to the CAR conference are accepted in English only.

Submissions must arrive at the CAR Editorial Manager system no later than 11:59p.m. EDT on April 14, 2020.

Papers not accepted for the conference and submissions that come in after the deadline will be treated as regular CAR submissions. Papers accepted for the conference are usually published in CAR; however, the ultimate disposition of each manuscript will be determined through the journal’s normal review process. Authors will be notified of the initial decision regarding their conference submission by early August 2020.


Submissions should be directed to:

Professors Alan Webb & Michael Welker

Contemporary Accounting Research


Questions about the submission process should be addressed to Ms. Carina Hackett.
