Young Accounting Scholars Network

Young Accounting Scholars Network is a network of leading UK universities that promotes dissemination of accounting research by young academics (lecturers within five years of finishing the PhD). The network supports accounting scholars by promoting and facilitating research presentations during staff seminars at partner universities. Each university in the network hosts a speaker from the partner university and the visit includes a research presentation and meetings with academics at the host institution.

The match between the home and the host university rotates on annual basis so that each university hosts a speaker from a different partner each year. Future goals of the network include promoting (1) short-term visits to partner universities, (2) collaborative research projects between scholars from partner universities, (3) knowledge exchange via an annual conference and (4) further training via focused workshops and seminars. The current coordinator for the network is Dr Pawel Bilinski pawel.bilinski.1@city.ac.uk

YASN seminar speakers

Academic year 2017/18


Jay Jung, Cass Business School (visiting University of Exeter) -
I relocated to the U.K. two years ago after getting my PhD degree in Korea. So, I did not have much chance to meet new people and learn different cultures at other UK schools until last year, when I was able to visit University of Exeter as part of the YASN program. I enjoyed my presentation, comments, and all sorts of interaction with people at the school. It was a very enjoyable and constructive experience. I highly recommend this program to junior academics, especially to those who just got a job in the UK and want more exposure to UK academics!

Skralan Vergauwe, Lancaster University Management School (visiting LSE) - "I am a lecturer at Lancaster University Management School and I presented one of my working papers at the London School of Economics and Political Science as part of the YASN network. Overall, I enjoyed the experience and would recommend other young accounting scholars to take part. First, I receive valuable feedback and comments from LSE researchers on my presented work. Second I met with several researchers in one to one meetings, allowing me to not only talk about my current research, but also to discuss future research and more general challenges academic researchers currently face."


Ruby Trinh, University of Bristol (visiting Cass Business School) -
“I had the opportunity to be a part of the Young Accounting Scholars Network and presented my paper at Cass Business School in November 2017. It was a valuable experience for me to discuss my work with leading academics. The constructive comments that I received helped to improve the quality of my paper. As young researchers, exposure to such high quality seminars is very important and beneficial to our career. I hope that many others can benefit from the YASN.”

Saipriya Kamath, London School of Economics and Political Science (visiting AMBS) - “I had the opportunity to present one of my working papers at Alliance Manchester Business School as part of the Young Accounting Scholars Network in Feb 2018. Although I had presented this paper at two different conferences, the feedback I got from the faculty was far more detailed than the conferences. I also had the opportunity to meet several researchers individually, and got to know their research better along with receiving further constructive feedback. Overall, I benefitted a lot from this experience and would highly recommend this program to young academics.“

Academic year 2018/19

Adnan Isin, University of Exeter (visiting LSE) - “The YASN Seminar allows junior scholars to present their work and get great feedback from leading academics from some of the best universities in the UK. I presented my work at London School of Economics on February 2019. I must say that the “positive” engagement of the academic staff at the LSE was incredible. The audience makes you truly feel that they are interested but ready to challenge you in a very positive way. You hear Through the experience, you learn how to shield your arguments and strengthen your case eventually given that you are likely get a lot of comments/questions that are likely to appear in the actual reviewing process. Therefore, I believe the program provides a great opportunity to showcase your work 1) for networking purposes and 2) to get some of the most “needed” challenging comments from the experts in the field. This is exactly what junior scholars need at the early stage of their careers.”

Nikos Tsileponis, University of Bristol (visiting University of Exeter) - "I am a lecturer in Accounting at the University of Bristol and, as part of the Young Accounting Scholars Network (YASN), I presented one of my papers at the University of Exeter in May 2019. It was a very good experience for me, which gave me the opportunity to meet with several colleagues as well as PhD candidates. I received excellent feedback during my presentation and I believe I have significantly improved the quality of my paper. Overall, I feel I have benefitted a lot from my visit to Exeter Business School and I would strongly recommend YASN to all colleagues. My advice to all young academics is the following: Do not be afraid to share ideas, provide and receive feedback, and present your research in front of other academics; YASN provides an excellent opportunity, so do take advantage of it!"

Sarah Kröchert, Lancaster University (visiting University of Manchester) “I was in my first year as lecturer at Lancaster University when I visited the University of Manchester as part of the YASN program. I truly enjoyed meeting the faculty in Manchester, since, with a PhD from Germany, I had not met most of them before. I also received valuable and diverse feedback on a paper that was still in an early stage and did not touch on classical accounting topics. For me, the YASN program mainly demonstrated that the UK has much to offer for young accounting researchers – a large network of established researchers who are welcoming new members and have a wide range of expertise.”
