The Editors would like to invite submissions for forthcoming volumes of Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management (QRAM). Special Issue proposals are also welcome.
Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management aims to promote an international and interdisciplinary understanding of accounting, management and organisations; recognising the increasing contribution made by qualitative research in these and related fields and providing a forum for publishing such work.

QRAM has been awarded a ‘B’ rating in the 2008 Australian Business Deans Council Journal Rankings List in just its fifth year of publication.

The contribution of qualitative research in accounting, management and organisation studies continues to gather momentum. Qualitative research informs the ongoing development of contemporary theory in these areas. Policy makers, research funding agencies and industry are increasingly recognising the importance and value of qualitative research that offers detailed and rich analyses of accounting and management in organisations and society.
