The Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University is pleased to be hosting the 7th CSEAR North America conference.

The Congress will be deliberately informal gathering of researchers, teachers, students and practitioners concerned with social and environmental accounting, teaching and research in the very widest sense. Its emphasis is on a high level of interaction, discussion and debate in a friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere. Attendees will include academics, practitioners and doctoral students at all levels of experience, and involved with all aspects of social, environmental and sustainability theory and practice in accounting and other disciplines. Both full and research-in-progress papers are welcomed.

Best Paper contest – Public sector and Not-for-profit Accounting

Two prizes of $2,500 Canadian will be awarded in two categories: (1) Emerging Scholars, being PhD Students and tenure track faculty no more than 3 years post Ph.D. as of June 20th, 2018 and  (2) Established Scholars, being all others. The categories refer to the main author, co-authors may be from outside of each category. Papers must be in the area of public sector or not-for-profit accounting, meant in the broadest sense. Effectively, anything not specifically on the for-profit sector is welcome, although public-private partnerships and issues around privatization certainly apply. The winning papers will be presented by the authors as part of the Symposium.


Full papers and/or abstracts should be submitted to CSEAR North America Congress . Submissions will be blind reviewed. It is requested that a title page with author information is submitted, and then the main submission with the title only. All full papers submitted for CSEAR NA on the public sector and not-for-profit area will automatically be considered for the Best Paper contest.

Further details regarding the submission of papers will be made available on the CSEAR NA website.

The CAAA is proud to sponsor the CSEAR North America conference in 2018. Discounted registration will be available to CAAA members.
