MAJ - APIRA Special Issue

Managerial Auditing Journal, recently relaunched as MAJ - Assurance, Management Performance and Governance (MAJ), is an international journal that advances knowledge and research in areas that include the regulatory and professional frameworks of corporate and public sector governance, ethics, risk and management performance from multi-disciplinary perspectives, with a focus on audit and assurance.

Led by joint editors Professors Barry J. Cooper (Deakin University), Philomena Leung (Macquarie University) and Nonna Martinov-Bennie (Macquarie University), the journal occupies a niche in the international market by drawing on new knowledge and practice through the dissemination of high quality research and dialogue between academics and practitioners. Supported by a distinguished Editorial Board, the journal upholds high standards and attracts a wide international audience, with in excess of 289,000 articles downloaded in 2011, predominantly from the USA, the UK, Malaysia and Australia. With access rates highest in the USA and UK, the journal's current author profile consists mainly of authors from North America, followed by Asia and Europe.
