Australian Accounting Review
The Australian Accounting Review (AAR) is the pre-eminent, peer-reviewed journal published four times a year on behalf of CPA Australia.
AAR is positioned at the intersection of business and academe and features articles by leading practitioners and researchers. It aims to provide in-depth discussion and critical analysis of developments affecting professionals in all areas of finance, accounting and business.
Articles published in Australian Accounting Review should be relevant to the journal’s primary readership: the Australasian and international academic, professional, business, government and regulatory communities. Review articles on issues relevant to AAR’s primary readership are also favourably received. Motivation for articles should be located in current events/problems that affect the business and professional communities, and in the literature. Articles must display a high level of critical analysis, employ an appropriate research approach, provide empirical evidence to support conclusions, and establish the local and international significance of their findings. Replications of international studies that simply apply an accepted methodology to a data set in a different context are not acceptable unless the broad implications of conclusions are articulated, and are of relevance to a wider set of circumstances. Data that purport to be contemporary need to be so. Papers must be scholarly and have the authority of academic rigour yet be accessible to non-academic readers. Papers are subject to a double-blind peer review process to ensure the quality of their underlying research methodology and argument.
