The Accounting Research Institute (ARI) organizes a three-day research publication retreat for its researchers. Basically the retreat aims to gather all ARI researchers who are completing their phase 1 research projects on Islamic Financial Criminology.
In essence there are a total of 42 projects comprising 23 titles related to Islamic finance & accounting and 19 projects on financial criminology. ARI HICoE first year projects are generally exploratory in nature, where researchers collaborate with both national and international strategic partners to conduct the research projects. The retreat involves a research publication workshop. Each project is to produce at least five spinoffs, two of which must be in the form of publication in indexed journals. Prior to the retreat, most research groups have organized their own mini meetings and to prepare for their draft journal articles. At the end of the three-day retreat, each research group is required to identify the five research spinoffs. Based on the comments of the workshop mentor, members are expected to make necessary ammendments to their journal papers and to submit online their respective papers.
