Aims and Scope

Advances in Public Interest Accounting aims to provide a forum for researchers concerned with critically appraising and significantly transforming conventional accounting theory, practice, teaching and research. The series also aims to increase the social self-awareness of accounting practitioners, educators, and researchers, encouraging them to assume a greater responsibility for the profession’s social role. 

Topics addressed include, but are not limited to:

  • Expanding accounting’s focus beyond the behaviour of individual corporate entities, encompassing the conflicts of interest within the accounting-regulatory process and effected groups;
  • Exploring alternatives to traditional economics and sociology models, beyond conventional efficiency and profitability measures of corporate performance;
  • Recognizing and examining the influences of gender and feminist theory, class and race, on accounting practice, education, and research
  • Incorporating the significance of accounting as a communicative practice, as social dialogue, and as a social arbiter;
  • Recognizing and examining the effect of accounting practice on environmental issues and on the externalities imposed on local and global communities;
  • Examining accounting’s participation in multinational expansion, consolidations, and changing economies undergoing transformations, such as Eastern and Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union, and the European Community;
  • Addressing the impact of new advances in information technologies.

Advances in Public Interest Accounting accepts both submissions of manuscripts and proposals for themed issues. If you wish to contribute, or to submit a proposal, please contact editor Cheryl Lehman at [email protected].
