Journal of Accounting Research
The Journal of Accounting Research (JAR) is the oldest private research journal in the field and it regularly ranks as one of the top accounting research journals in the world.
Journal of Accounting Research publishes original research in all areas of accounting and topics including finance, economics, statistics, psychology, and sociology. Research typically uses analytical, empirical archival, experimental, or field study methods. Questions pertain to information and measurement used in organizations, markets, governments, regulation and standards; often arising in financial reporting, disclosure, internal accounting, auditing, taxation, corporate governance, capital markets, law, contracting, and with respect to the accounting profession. Between 1963 and 2001, the journal was published by the Chookaszian Accounting Research Center and currently is published by the center in partnership with Wiley-Blackwell.

JAR is published five times a year, in March, May, June, September, and December. The May issue features papers presented at the previous year's annual research conference.
