Aims & Scope

The South African Journal of Accounting Research (SAJAR) publishes peer-reviewed original research papers, notes and commentaries that address issues relevant to accounting academics and professional accountants in Southern Africa and elsewhere. This includes areas of interest in the study and practice in financial accounting, auditing, taxation, financial management, management accounting, finance, ethics and information systems. Research papers 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 quality 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.

To provide a balanced presentation contributions are welcomed from the fields mentioned above, and from related areas, such as environmental accounting, corporate law, corporate governance, and accounting education. These fields may be approached from a wide variety of perspectives such as the behavioural, technological, institutional, organisational, regulatory, societal, educational, or environmental. Manuscripts that pass the initial screening will be sent for evaluation based on the double blind peer-review procedure.
