Virtual Format, BR
novembro 9, 2020 – novembro 13, 2020
As a result of the pandemic, the “2020 Qualitative Research and Critical Accounting (QRCA) Conference: Consolidating and Extending QRCA in Latin America” will adopt a virtual format - partially interactive and partially asynchronous - from November 9th to 13th, 2020. The details regarding virtual activities of the conference will be available on the coming months.
One of the main objectives of the conference is to join efforts with local initiatives to promote and stimulate the production of Qualitative and Critical Accounting Research (QRCA), in the Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries of Latin America. Another ambition is to help establish significant bridges between the network of Latin American researchers committed to QRCA, and the QRCA network from the global North.
The QRCA conference does not intend to provide magical recipes on how to engage with research and publish it in a reputable journal. That being said, it is realistic for participants to expect a number of potential benefits, among them:
- Raising participants’ awareness that they are not alone in doing qualitative research and that there is a growing community of QRCA researchers in Latin America. The conference may allow participants to extend their network of support.
- Exposure to in-depth discussions surrounding evaluation criteria of interpretive and critical research.
- Opportunities to present working papers in front of an audience made up of qualitative researchers, and to receive constructive feedback from this audience.
- Involvement in discussions on challenges and opportunities in publishing QRCA papers in international journals that are receptive to this kind of research.
- Involvement in discussions on how to make research in Latin American settings of interest to an international audience.
Note that the authors of the most promising papers may be invited, informally, to submit their work to Critical Perspectives on Accounting once they have taken into account the comments received at the conference.

Any scholar or researcher committed to QRCA is invited to make a submission to the conference – as long as the study is qualitative, reflective of the critical or interpretive paradigm of social research.
- Full Paper Presentations: Authors can submit papers of up to 20,000 words (Microsoft Word file). Papers which are fairly advanced will be considered. PhD students whose thesis is near completion may also submit a full paper.
- Research Forum: Authors can submit working papers or summaries – up to 5,000 words (Microsoft Word file). For the Forum, the conference organizers expect to receive research projects that are not completed but that present a high degree of originality.
- Graduate students’ project: Students can submit a 1,500-word summary of their thesis or dissertation proposal (file in Microsoft Word format), specifying at which stage is their PhD or Master (for how many years has the student been enrolled in the program). Note that graduate students (PhD and Research Master) are not required to submit a 1,500-word summary to attend the Graduate students’ seminar – as long as their research interests are clearly positioned under qualitative, interpretive or critical approaches.
Language for submissions: Note that given its international flavor, submissions to the QRCA Conference may be written in Portuguese, Spanish, English and French. If the paper is accepted, the organizing committee recommends that the slides for the presentation are in English, in order to increase comments from the international audience. The languages spoken during the conference will be Portuguese, Spanish, French, and English.
