FAR Call for Research Proposals 2019

We are proud to issue FAR’s 4th Call for Research Project Proposals (2019). Based on further developments of our research agenda and strategy, we would like to invite scholars to submit a proposal for a research project that either provides practitioners and academics insights into auditing practices described in the existing literature or that seeks to develop new knowledge of audit practices.

In this call, FAR invites scholars to submit research proposals with regard to 8 topics in the following 3 research programs:

Research Program A1:
Research practice notes, to academically inform the current professional and public debate with regard to the audit profession in the Netherlands. Such practice notes have an expected project timeline of 3 months maximum and may develop into a Program A2 project.

Research Program A2:
Research syntheses, to unlock what we already know from science (in accounting and in other fields) about a specific question and potential interventions that can be suggested to strengthen audit quality. Such research projects have an expected project timeline of 6 to 9 months and may develop into a Program B project.

Research Program B:
Empirical research projects, including a research practice note and synthesis (program A1+2, within same timelines), with a project timeline of 1 to 4 years (depending on scope of the research project).

Proposals should be submitted in writing to the Scientific Committee of FAR no later than February 7, 2019 for programs A1 and A2 and no later than March 22, 2019 for program B.
