Journal of Human Resource Costing & Accounting (JHRCA) 2011 Conference

Conference call for papers from Journal of Human Resource Costing & Accounting


14-15 April 2011, Apex International Hotel, Edinburgh
In conjunction with the Emerald Publishing Group, the School of Management and Languages’s recently founded Centre for Research on Work and Wellbeing (CroWW) at Heriot-Watt University is hosting a conference in Edinburgh in support of the Journal of Human Resource Costing and Accounting.
Submissions are invited on the broad topic of ´accounting for people´ from scholars working in a wide range of management disciplines including accounting, finance, human resource management, knowledge management, strategy, organisation behaviour and organisation studies, as well as from practitioners working in this field. Contributions with a theoretical orientation and/or a critical perspective are particularly encouraged. Details of the evolving scope and agenda of the Journal of Human Resource Costing and Accounting can be found in the editorial in volume 12, issue 3 in 2008.

Submission Details 

Submissions must be in English, the language of the conference, and emailed to the Editor, Professor Robin Roslender at [email protected], before the 30 November 2010. This is to provide the opportunity for initial review by members of the Editorial Board. The intention is to ensure a relatively speedy publication process for conference participants, following a further review exercise. Initial expressions of interest or related enquiries are encouraged.
Conference Location

The Apex International Hotel (4*) is now confirmed as the venue for this event. It is situated in the heart of the city of Edinburgh, in its historic Grassmarket, which is overlooked by its famous castle. Many of the city´s most famous buildings and landmarks are within walking distance, together with its shopping district. The hotel is a twenty minute taxi ride from the city’s international airport.

Conference Fee

The cost of the event is £395, to include overnight accomodation on 14 April (and breakfast) and the conference dinner in the Heights Restaurant. Further details will soon be available on the CroWW website of the School of Management and Languages.
Intending participants are also encouraged to contact the Professor Robin Roslender ([email protected]) if they have any questions or queries.
