Call for Research Volume Proposals Studies in Managerial and Financial Accounting

Studies in Managerial and Financial Accounting is a compendium of leading research that uses a variety of methodologies to explain how accounting can aid the implementation of organizational strategies and the efficient operations of capital markets. Acting as a forum for debate, the title provides an opportunity for the exchange of peer-reviewed knowledge advancing the research, teaching, and practice of accounting. To date, the series has 30 volumes.

Series Editors Marc J. Epstein and Anne M. Farrell are seeking proposals for volumes that advance any accounting domain – financial, managerial, tax, audit, information systems, governmental, etc. Selected volumes that illustrate the diversity of topics of interest to readers are listed below.

We are most interested in volumes that are a collection of manuscripts by multiple authors on a particular theme. Examples include:

  • a series of research studies on a particular topic;
  • literature reviews for a particular topical or methodological domain (e.g., auditing; tax; behavioral research; archival research);
  • papers identified at a conference; or,
  • a volume that could serve as a resource for a doctoral seminar.

We are also seeking proposals for volumes by a single author or author team that include an extensive examination of one research topic.

A volume is generally 250-350 pages in length, and volume editors have significant editorial control of the content. The work included must be previously unpublished. The emphasis is on high quality work that will help accounting faculty and students advance the research, teaching and practice of accounting. See the series web site for more information (

Please email questions or proposals for new volumes to the Series Editors, Marc J. Epstein ( and Anne M. Farrell ( The call for proposals in ongoing. Proposals should include name and contact information for the volume editor(s), an overview of the topic, proposed chapters and authors, and an estimated timeline for delivery.
