This special issue aims to advance our understanding of the evolution of Canadian equity markets over the last decade. The Canadian equity market is characterized by a small number of large issuers and a large number of small issuers who mostly operate in the mining, oil and gas and financial services industries. Pressures to respond to changes in U.S. and international corporate governance and capital market regulation in the early 2000’s to maintain the credibility of the Canadian equity market have led to the issuance of a number of national and multilateral instruments and policies, and the adoption of IFRS in 2011. These changes are more burdensome for the small issuers with limited resources than the many large issuers who are cross-listed on U.S. exchanges and already subject to its more stringent regulation. They were criticized for not putting enough emphasis on the protection of minority shareholders in the many closely-held Canadian public companies. Repeated calls for a national securities regulator have also led to the establishment of the Canadian Securities Transition Office and more recently, the creation of the Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System. Despite, or perhaps as a result of, the many changes to the regulatory landscape, the number and value of Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) has decreased consistently since the early 2000s.

TOPICS

Topics appropriate for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Costs and benefits of compliance for small issuers
  • Recognition, measurement and presentation of related-party transactions by closely-held public companies under IFRS
  • Trends in number, value and returns of Canadian IPOs and comparison with other markets
  • Costs and benefits of national and provincial securities regulation

SUBMISSIONS

Following Accounting Perspectives’ editorial policy, submissions are welcome in the following four streams: literature reviews, applied research and commentary, educational articles and instructional cases. Accounting Perspectives welcomes all theoretical and methodological paradigms. Articles and instructional cases must be written in an accessible style suitable for the journal’s diverse audience.

Qualitative Research in Accounting and Management Special Issue

Enabling and Coercive Controls in the 21st Century: Revisiting Adler & Borys

Guest editors: Erik Strauss (Witten/Herdecke University, Germany) & Sophie Tessier (HEC Montreal)

The aim of this special issue is to revisit Adler and Borys’ (1996) framework and to reconceptualise its theoretical arguments against the backdrop of contemporary organisational and societal developments.

20 years ago, Adler and Borys (A&B) wrote a seminal article about two types of bureaucracy, i.e. enabling and coercive. Their idea of enabling and coercive bureaucracies inspired over 1,500 studies (GoogleScholar citations) to investigate the ambivalent role of “workflow formalization” from different perspective such as accounting, operations research, marketing or general management and, thereby, bridged the boundaries of accounting and management studies. In particular, since its impartation to accounting research by Ahrens and Chapman (2004), it has become a major theoretical framework to analyse accounting and control aspects in organisations.

View the full Call for Papers and Topics of Interest

The purpose of this special issue is to revisit A&B’s enabling and coercive bureaucracy framework in light of contemporary issues, as well as expand our conceptual understanding of these concepts.

Tentative Schedule:

  • Manuscript submissions: June 30, 2017
  • Accepted papers are expected to be published in mid to end-2018.
  • All papers are subject to the usual double-blind review process of QRAM.

‘Translation is a vital part of achieving the IFRS Foundation's mission to develop a single set of high-quality global accounting standards for use around the world’ (IASB website)
 

‘… translation is a highly manipulative activity that involves all kind of stages in that process of transfer across linguistic and cultural boundaries. Translation is not an innocent, transparent activity but it is highly charged with significance at every stage; it rarely, if ever, involves a relationship of equality between texts, authors or systems’ (Bassnett and Trivedi 2012, p.2)
 
Translation – across languages and cultures - plays a critical role in accounting. It is required in international trade, in operating and accounting for multinational enterprises, in creating, implementing and enforcing international accounting laws and standards, in delivering accounting education to international cohorts of students, and in conducting international and intercultural research. Financial statements and annual reports, standards and standard setting discourse, teaching materials and publication of research findings all require translation for at least some constituents. Accounting research explores annual report narratives or regulatory discourse, employs content analysis or disclosure indices, conducts interview, experimental and survey research, and draws on theoretical frameworks, all often across cultural and language boundaries.
