How To Find Your Paper?
Papers contained in these proceedings are refereed papers as they are double blind peer reviewed. The readers are advised to click on individual track names (say Management) and then select the paper by the paper number, title and or author (s). We have tried to minimise the errors but sole responsibility rests on the author(s) concerned. In some cases, we have provided “abstract” only as per instruction of the concerned author(s). We hope these papers would serve as the most valuable materials for business research only and no materials should be used or manipulated for any purpose other than purely academic research.

Information Quality of Quarterly Financial Statements: Evidence from Companies Listed in DFM
Australian Directory of Ranked International Journals (ADRIJ)
In 2018, World Business Institute (WBI) introduced Australian Directory of Ranked International Journals (ADRIJ) to assess the quality of Business Journals. An international Committee was set up to assess the quality of the journals focusing on subjects relating to broad field of business such as accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Business Computing, Business Ethics. After thorough assessment, quality journals were identified and ranked as 5*, 4*, 3*, 2* and 1*. Although there are many indexing bodies, some of them have conflict of interest , some of them are biased and current practice of journal quality assessment do not reflect the true quality of the research papers included in the respective journal. Hence the WBI with the assistance of experienced international academia has prepared a list of journals with ranking for 2018.
The quality assessment is a continuous process and each year the ranking of these journals would be re-assessed and the new or revised ranking will be published by new edition of ADRIJ.
