Co-operative Studies Research Track will be held at the Annual Atlantic Schools of Business Conference hosted by the University of New Brunswick, located in Fredericton. The conference will occur from September 25th through the 27th, 2015. It is bilingual so both French and English submissions are highly encouraged. The submission deadline for the conference is August 7th, 2015 and you will be notified of your submission’s acceptance status by August 28th, 2015.

The Co-operative Studies Research Track is open to all areas of cooperative research such as co-ops in critical management; environmental and social reporting; co-op management and ethics; co-op entrepreneurship; governance for co-ops, key performance indicators, financial reporting and accounting, performance measurement and analysis; financial management; tax accounting; public responsibility and ethics; technology innovation management; and knowledge management. The track is also open to papers that are in the development stage. Masters and PhD students are encouraged to submit papers. They have a limited amount of funding available to assist with student travel. Please refer to the Atlantic Schools of Business website for further information.

ASB is dedicated to fostering a supportive environment, whether it is by helping scholars polish developed manuscripts or helping to improve ideas in progress. Submissions at multiple stages of development are encouraged, including full papers to be considered for presentation and conference proceedings, papers and concepts in process that are suitable for presentation, and symposia that combine various streams of thought to engage and inform debate.
