NEW to NISC - South African Journal of Accounting Research

The South African Journal of Accounting Research will be published by NISC and Taylor & Francis from 2015. The journal is an accredited, national academic journal which is published annually by the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors, the South African Institute for Chartered Accountants and the Southern African Accounting Association. 

The South African Journal of Accounting Research publishes research papers, notes and commentaries that address issues relevant to accounting academics and professional accountants in Southern Africa and elsewhere. 

To provide a balanced presentation, contributions are welcomed from fields ranging from environmental accounting, ethics and accounting education. These fields may be approached from a wide variety of perspectives such as behavioural, technological, institutional, organisational, regulatory, societal, educational or environmental. 

Editor of The South African Journal of Accounting Research, Professor Enrico Uliana, a Chartered Accountant, entered academia after 10 years in practice, obtaining his doctorate in financial management. He is rated by the National Research Foundation and the South African Accounting Association presented him with the Ernst and Young Outstanding Contribution to Accounting Research Award.

Research papers submitted to this journal should be analytical and make a contribution to knowledge in the field. They may be empirically based (including survey and case study methods) or review and theoretically based. Notes and commentaries should meet all the criteria for good research, however their interest and topicality may compensate for the research problem being less rigorously pursued. Notes and commentaries would typically be shorter than research papers, and a faster turnaround time is expected.

The review process is quick and is being done within the reasonable time. After acceptance, NISC is also quick enough to send proofs and is very efficiently publishes the accepted paper online before its print version.

Since 1995, NISC has systematically built up competence and the necessary capacity in all aspects of publishing high-level research journals, with the professionalism needed to flourish in the increasingly competitive world of international research publications. No other publisher in South Africa commands the necessary technical skills, experience, competence, enthusiasm and resources to the same degree as NISC, in my view.

The paper was wonderfully laid out and rapidly published
