Publications Database

Welcome to the new Schulich Peer-Reviewed Publication Database!

The database is currently in beta-testing and will be updated with more features as time goes on. In the meantime, stakeholders are free to explore our faculty’s numerous works. The left-hand panel affords the ability to search by the following:

  • Faculty Member’s Name;
  • Area of Expertise;
  • Whether the Publication is Open-Access (free for public download);
  • Journal Name; and
  • Date Range.

At present, the database covers publications from 2012 to 2020, but will extend further back in the future. In addition to listing publications, the database includes two types of impact metrics: Altmetrics and Plum. The database will be updated annually with most recent publications from our faculty.

If you have any questions or input, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Abstract In an extension to the mandatory financial reporting literature, we consider compliance and applicability as intermediate stages in the disclosure decision process, and investigate to what extent these measures explain any variance in the quantity of disclosure. We use financial instruments disclosures as our empirical context because of the level of complexity and diversity of the mandatory requirements. We find that neither applicability nor compliance show statistically significant association with disclosure quantity. By contrast we find that a firm's financial instruments management programme is an important determinant of both applicability and quantity. Finally, we demonstrate the economic consequences of applicability, compliance and quantity through their association with audit fees. For companies that use financial instruments management programmes to a greater extent, audit fees are higher. In contrast, the quantity of financial instruments disclosures appears to reduce audit fees.

Abstract Recognizing that disclosure choices are not made in political and social vacuums, this study suggests that sociological perspectives such as innovation-diffusion inform a theory of compliance.

Abstract Written communication is the primary means used by tax authorities to communicate with taxpayers. Prior research shows that the content of written communications by tax authorities can influence taxpayers’ compliance by appealing to interactional fairness. Interactional fairness refers to the quality of treatment that individuals receive from an authority figure and has two dimensions, tone and information. In written communications from a tax authority, inadvertently or by design, both tone and information are conveyed. In our study, we examine the impact of both dimensions on taxpayers’ compliance through an experiment involving 287 taxpayers. We find an interaction between tone and information, such that compliance is highest in the presence of high information and an authoritative tone. We also find that compliance is positively associated with information. Our findings have practical implications for tax authorities in determining how best to use written communications to encourage taxpayers’ compliance.
