The World Congress at Newcastle, United Kingdom was the thirteenth such event. It attracted delegates from across the world and 119 papers were presented – 66% from academics from four countries (Italy, Turkey, UK and US). Most of these papers (75%) covered the period from 1800 onwards. This paper sets out the contextual framework in which the papers presented at the World Congress should be viewed with particular reference to the problems faced by non-Anglo-Saxon academics trying to publish in English-language journals. It then introduces the papers accepted for the special issue, highlighting some of the overlapping themes. These papers cover a wider range of topics than is usual in English-speaking journals (two relating to British Shipbuilding, one on accounting developments from Mesopotamia to today, one on Japanese accounting in World War II and two on medieval accounting (in England and Turkey).
