Accounting in Transition: Influence of Technology, Sustainability and Diversity

Call for papers for: Pacific Accounting Review

Guest Editors: Sabrina Chong, Asheq Rahman, Anil Narayan, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand

The impact of new technologies, escalating social and environmental issues and accounting’s ability to adapt to the rapid pace of change and uncertainties are the major challenges facing the accounting profession. These challenges also raise a host of secondary issues that accountants will need to address in the foreseeable future.

We expect this special issue to generate new ideas of importance for accounting academic and practitioner discourse that will eventually influence change in how accounting is practised.
