academics, practitioners, financial analysts, financial executives,
regulators, and accounting policy makers. In addition, the journal will
publish educational articles and instructional cases.

Articles are sought from academics and practitioners that address relevant
issues in any and all areas of accounting, including financial accounting
and reporting, auditing and other assurance services, management accounting
and performance measurement, information systems and related technologies,
tax policy and practice, accounting education, ethics, and related topics.

* empirical and theoretical studies of accounting phenomena
* applied / field research and cases from practice
* surveys or studies of implementation of accounting and assurance standards
or practices
* analyses of innovations in accounting education policies or practices

Accounting Perspectives welcomes research undertaken from all theoretical
and methodological perspectives. Each article submitted to the journal must

addressed and methodology adopted by the author. All articles must be
written in an accessible style suitable for a broad audience.
