Journal of Management Accounting Research

The Journal of Management Accounting Research (JMAR) is pleased to announce the forthcoming SPECIAL INTEREST FORUM ON SURVEY RESEARCH, co-edited by Professors Sally K. Widener, Clemson University, and Roland F. Speklé, Nyenrode University, The Netherlands. The Special Interest Forum explores how rigorous and innovative survey-based research extends our understanding of important questions and provides a valuable method for the testing of theory. Such research will help steer the future direction of management accounting research and facilitate the development of new theories, providing interesting insights that either shed thought-provoking new light on inferences of prior research, or that reveal real-world phenomenon in need of additional research. Discussion articles set forth best practices for the 'doing' of survey research and examine methodological issues associated with such studies.

Articles are available now in the Online Early digital library (http://aaajournals.org/toc/jmar/0/0) and will publish in Summer 2018 (Volume 30, Issue 2).

Letter from the President

Benjamin C. Ayers

To my colleagues in the Management Accounting Section of the AAA,

As my term begins, I’d like to provide a summary of the state of our Section. Below are updates on significant current and new MAS activities, and on our financial condition and fee changes that will take effect in 2019-2020. I’ve included names of some who lead these activities, but for those whose names are not mentioned, please know that it’s not because your efforts are not appreciated – it’s because we have over 135 volunteer positions staffed by more than 110 people so it’s simply impossible to list all the great things you do!

The MAS has long had its own distinct culture. Our colleagues have diverse research and teaching interests, geographies, tenure in the academy and experiences prior to joining it, personal stories, and more...

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.

Continuing on JMAR’s promise to include diverse methodological perspectives, we have editors covering all methods used to address management accounting issues, and have wide geographical representation with 46% of the editors not based in the US. Furthermore, the incoming Editorial Board which are relied upon to do the bulk of the reviewing will, for the first time in JMAR’s history, consists of a majority of non-US based researchers. I will announce the incoming Editorial Board members at the Management Accounting Section’s midyear meeting in January.
