The Financial Reporting Journal is glad to announce that the 2020 Financial
Reporting Workshop will be held in Bari on September 17th, hosted by the SIDREA

The aim of the Workshop is to discuss high quality papers on all aspects of financial
reporting and business communication. We encourage the submission of both
empirical and theoretical papers and case studies addressing financial reporting
issues. Topics may include:

  • The introduction and the effectiveness of IAS/IFRS

  • The relationship between financial reporting and corporate governance
  • Social and environmental disclosure
  • Accounting choices and earnings quality
  • The role of narrative disclosure in financial reporting
  • International accounting harmonization
  • Audit quality and financial statements

This year, in accordance with the main topic of SIDREA Congress, papers concerned
with companies’ crisis and sustainable development will be very appreciated.

All papers will be peer‐reviewed prior to acceptance for the workshop. Accepted
papers will be presented in a parallel session with a discussant.
