CALL FOR PAPERS FOR QRAM - FAMILY BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING AND CONTROL SYSTEMS

Authors:Hanno Roberts
Type:Academic papers (complete)
Website:http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/call_for_papers.htm?id=6352
Family Business and Management Accounting and Control systems

Special issue call for papers from Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management

What is the Special Issue about?


Guest Edited by Hanno Roberts, Norwegian School of Business, Norway, and Luca Gnan, University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, Italy, this special issue focusses on Family firms as an organisational form is the dominant type of business, covering 95% of the world’s business activity. This percentage increases even further when considering Asia, South-America, and Africa in which it approaches 100% of business activity. However, its economical prominence is still only limitedly reflected in research coverage. The purpose of this special issue is twofold: first, to provide answers on how, why, and what questions on the design, use, and (non-)change of management accounting and control within family business processes. Second, to engage in the cross-disciplinary debate on the conceptual relationships and frameworks that both fields might share and benefit from.Where the first purpose is primarily leveraging one field with the other (family business with management accounting and control), the second purpose aims at a reciprocal benefit from an exchange between both fields. Both purposes imply that the Special Issue looks for process-oriented research of an internal managerial nature that makes functional or theoretical contributions.

The special issue welcomes all theoretical stances, e.g., agency, stewardship, resource-based view of the firm, behavioral, and systems, but, in line with the journal’s mission, will emphasize the use of qualitative research methodology, broadly defined.

Topics of interest

We seek papers on:

How are management accounting systems (MAS) and/or management control systems (MCS) implicated in family firms' processes of professionalization, succession, and ‘familiness’ or ‘socioemotional wealth’?

What is the role of performance measurement systems in family firms turnaround, renewal, and innovation?
How are MAS and/or MCS involved in developing a family firms’ identity, reputation, and/or legitimacy?
What is the role of CFO or the finance function over the family firm life cycle, evolution, initiation, or demise?
What are the organizational aspects of management accounting and control systems in family firms?
How is the relationship between strategy and management accounting & control systems in family firms articulated?
