The Tax Research Network 28th annual conference will be held on 9-11 September at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston, England.

A multidisciplinary event, the conference will particularly interest accountants, lawyers, economists, psychologists, sociologists, historians and a wide variety of other scholars from the social sciences and humanities.

Call for papers

Abstracts deadline: 31 March 2019

Deadline for accepted papers: 31 July 2019

The submission of papers for the conference is cordially invited. Whilst there is no specific theme, papers which are well grounded theoretically and/or innovative and interesting empirically are particularly sought. Organisers also warmly welcome papers from those who are new to tax research, in particular:

  • new (or potential) researchers from tax practice or tax teaching who may not yet have presented at an academic conference or published in an academic journal;
  • PhD students from all disciplines.

Organisers are happy to accept both “emerging papers” describing the preliminary stages of a project or reporting initial findings, and “full papers” describing completed projects.

Proposals for papers must be sent to the conference organisers by 31 March 2019. This should take the form of an extended abstract of up to 1500 words. You will be notified whether or not your paper is accepted by 30 April. Accepted papers should be submitted by 31 July 2019.

Please contact David Massey for queries or further information [email protected]

Doctoral Colloquium

As in previous years, the conference will include a Doctoral Colloquium to provide an opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers to present their work.

The requirements for submission of papers for the Doctoral Colloquium are the same as for the main conference.

In addition to the abstract, would those intending to join the Colloquium, please let the organisers know:

  • what you wish to get out of the event and;
  • what your supervisor wants you to gain from the experience.

This will help the organisers tailor the Colloquium to meet your needs and expectations.

Tax Education Day – Wednesday 11 September 2019

To follow up on the success of the Tax Education Day at last year’s conference in Birmingham, a day will be devoted again to tax education. This will address both University level teaching of taxation and the teaching of tax to professional students.

Participants are invited to present details of interesting and innovative ways they are undertaking tax teaching for part of the day. Invited speakers will fill other parts of the day to provide a practical and inspiring day suitable for anyone involved in tax education.

If you wish to submit a presentation (full papers are not necessarily required) for this day please indicate that you are targeting this day for your offering.

Presenter Fee Waiver

The organisers expect to be able to offer a conference registration fee and accommodation charge waiver for one presenter of each accepted paper. In addition, successful PhD students will be able to apply for funding for reasonable UK travel expenses.

For submissions and further information, please contact David Massey at: [email protected]
