Finance and accounting are seen as essential components for the successful
implementation of market-based development policies supporting economic
liberalisation in the rapidly emerging economies in Africa, the Middle-East
and Asia. Scholarly research into finance and accounting issues affecting
Africa, the Middle-East and Asia is currently wanting. A contributing factor
is the lack of suitable journals dedicated to publishing high quality
research on finance and accounting issues specifically affecting the
African, Middle-Eastern and Asian regions.
The aim of Afro-Asian Journal of Finance and Accounting (AAJFA) is to bridge
this gap in the finance and accounting literature within the above context.
AAJFA fosters greater discussion and research of the development of the
finance and accounting disciplines in Africa, the Middle-East and Asia. A
major feature of the journal will be to emphasise the implications of this
development and the effects on businesses, academics and professionals.
AAJFA is dedicated to publishing high quality research papers focusing
specifically on finance and accounting issues in Africa, the Middle-East and
Asia. The journal will cater for the research and knowledge requirements of
finance and accounting scholars and professionals from (or with an interest
in) Africa, the Middle-East and Asia.
AAJFA adopts a regional and intercontinental perspective to foster research
that can be transferred across multiple cultural and social barriers to
enhance greater bridging of the knowledge gap. It seeks to provide a
valuable proactive conduit for contemporary critical thought and discussion
on not only prevailing finance and accounting issues but topics that may
affect Africa, the Middle-East and Asia in the future.
