Special issue on accounting, Ethics, and Social Responsibility: Challenges for the 21st Century Organizations
Article Type: Call for papers From: Journal of Accounting & Organizational Change, Volume 8, Issue 1
Unethical behaviour within organizations early in this century has undoubtingly impacted the world of business. As a result, the government, companies, and universities have attempted to rebuild that responsibility through a number of methods, such as passing laws requiring better regulation and more disclosure as well as requiring improved ethics education for future entrepreneurs. The entrepreneur needs guidance on the issues of accounting, ethics, and social responsibility within an organization more than ever before. It is this latter issue that is needed of more robust research.
We are seeking research across all business disciplines that will offer theoretical and practical suggestions for the entrepreneur to create an ethical organization. Because the unethical acts carry out by one individual, a group of individuals, or an entire organization, an interdisciplinary approach to understanding unethical behaviour within organizations may be necessary.
The aim of this special edition of Journal of Accounting & Organizational Change is to promote informed debate about the role of accounting, ethics, and social responsibility within an organization. We invite theoretical, empirical, practical, and review papers, whether quantitative or qualitative, from scholars across disciplines on the following issues relating to accounting, ethics, and social responsibility:
ethical context of small businesses;
ethical challenges facing entrepreneurs;
promoting innovation and organizational change in developed and developing countries;
small business and innovation;
ethical issues in accounting;
ethical issues for accounting students;
social entrepreneurs and innovation;
promoting social entrepreneurs in developed and developing countries;
promoting ethics and innovation in microenterprises;
social entrepreneurs and ethics;
NGOs and innovation;
ethical context of NGOs; and
ethical context of non-profit organizations.
These themes are only indicative. Papers outside them with relevance to understanding the role of accounting, ethics, and social responsibility within an organization are welcomed. The deadline for submissions is 31 March 2012. Authors will be notified by 30 August 2012 on the acceptance or rejection of their manuscripts. Deadline for final revisions (where needed) will be 30 March 2013. Accepted papers will be published in early 2014 (Issue 1). Enquiries re this special issue should be sent to Dr Nicholas Koumbiadis.
