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.  For more information, view our Aims and Scopes.
