The meetings discuss recent advances in analytical accounting, tax, or organizations research. The focus of the discussion is the academic rigor of the studies, the relevance of the topic, and the writing style of the authors to learn more about the means of getting academic papers published in top peer-reviewed journals. Every participant must serve as a moderator at least once. Active participation in the discussions of all other sessions is expected. In addition, the participants are asked to provide a written report in the style of an academic journal review for one paper that they did not moderate. For this purpose, a preparation session and feedback session for the moderation and the written report is additionally required.
