A₹tha 9th anniversary issue: Call for Articles

A₹tha (pronounced as Artha) is an open-source e-journal published by the Financial Research and Trading Lab (FRTL), Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC). A₹tha would complete nine years in August 2021. To commemorate this occasion, we would publish the 9th-anniversary issue in September 2021. We invite you to contribute your article for the anniversary issue to by August 15, 2021.

Articles can be on topics in corporate governance (for example, ownership, board of directors, top executives and their compensation), accounting (financial reporting, cost accounting, auditing, and income taxes), finance (for example, corporate finance, financial economics, financial markets, investments, and financial risk management), and financial regulation (such as laws and regulation of securities, investments, financial contracts, intellectual property, and companies) relevant to India. Articles can also discuss an interesting issue or contribute to contemporary thoughts/debates on banking, financial services, insurance, fintech, financial markets, investments, private equity, and venture capital. The length of an article should preferably be between 2,000 and 3,000 words.

Articles are invited not only from IIMC faculty, alumni, and students but also from financial sector regulators, industry experts, and academics from India or abroad.
