Emerald acquires the Journal of Accounting Literature

5th November 2021

Journal of Accounting Literature coverEmerald is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Journal of Accounting Literature (JAL). The journal was established in 1982 at the University of Florida (USA). It was previously published by both the University (1982-2012) and Elsevier (2013-2019). JAL will resume publication in 2022 with its 44th volume.

The Journal of Accounting Literature is a Scopus-indexed publication that provides an interdisciplinary outlet for synthesis articles and original research papers related to accounting phenomena. With its international breadth and historical roots in the accounting subject area, we are excited for the new opportunities JAL presents to contribute to Emerald’s Responsible Management goal. We would like to thank the current Editor Stephen K Asare, as well as Gary McGill at the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business, for their help in leading JAL into the future.

JAL is now accepting submissions for 2022 and beyond via the online submission management system ScholarOne. Full details of the journal’s aims & scope can also be found on the recently-launched journal homepage.

JAL has been added to Emerald’s Accounting & Finance collection and is available for subscription. To learn how you can gain access to the publication and archive, please reach out to your Emerald business partner.

Notes on Emerald Publishing & usage during COVID-19

At present we are living in a difficult and uncertain time around the world, as we face the fight against COVID-19. Now, more than ever, people need quick and easy online access to the information we publish on Emerald Insight and the opportunities to share their research, so we are keen to ensure that all of our users have access to research, even if institutions are closed. To help with any issues, and keep people up to date with new information we launched our Customer Support Portal.

We have made research on COVID-19, the management of epidemics and pandemics, and supply chain management free for anyone to access and have also made this available with full text and data mining rights to PubMed Central and the World Health Organisation repository. We will continue to make relevant research freely available on this site.
