Journal

Dear MAS members,

As the incoming Senior Editor of the Journal of Management Accounting Research (JMAR) for the 2019-2021 term, I am excited to announce the team of Editors that will serve during my term. They are a group of 13 strong researchers that are ready to work with you, current and future authors and referees, on publishing high quality and relevant management accounting research.

I will announce the incoming Editorial Board members at the Management Accounting Section’s midyear meeting in January.
