Aims and Scope

Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management is an international journal that promotes qualitative research at the interface of accounting and management.

The journal encourages the assessment of practices in the accounting field through a variety of theoretical lenses, and seeks to further our knowledge of the accounting-management nexus in its broadest (e.g., organisational, social and political) contexts.

QRAM welcomes submissions of original research papers, conceptual pieces, substantive review articles, and shorter papers such as comments or research notes.

The following is intended to indicate potential topics, but is by no means prescriptive. These topics can be overlapping rather than discrete subject areas, and researchers should not feel restricted by the scope of the topics listed below.

• Management accounting and control
• Accountability, transition and organisational change
• Performance management and accounting metrics
• Accounting for strategic management
• The use and behavioural effects of accounting information  in   organisational decision-making
• Public and third sector accounting and management
• Accounting and management controls for sustainability and the   environment
• Historical perspectives on the accounting-management interface
• Methods and methodologies for research at the interface of accounting   and management
• Accounting and management in developing countries and emerging   economies
• Technology effects on accounting-management dynamics
Submissions are also welcome covering other topics that combine elements of the accounting and management domains.
