These transactions may be within a profit or nonprofit environment. The journal deliberately encourages a broad view of the origins and development of these disciplines with an emphasis on its functions in an increasingly interdependent global economy, and welcomes manuscripts that help explain current international practices, with related theoretical justifications, and identify criticisms of current practice.
- To encourage the application of economic theory to the explanation of accounting, auditing and taxation phenomena. It provides a forum for the publication of the highest quality manuscripts which employ economic analyses to accounting , auditing and taxation problems. A wide range of methodologies and topics are encouraged and covered.
- The journal focuses on the relationship between accounting, auditing, and taxation to both human behaviour and organizations' structures, processes, social, and political environments. Specific topics covered include the social role of accounting and social accounting; processes influencing innovations in accounting; organizational strategies for designing accounting and information systems; the behaviour of users of accounting information; cognitive studies of accounting and decision-making, all aspects of accounting's role within organizations, markets, or society.
