Journal of Management Accounting Research
A Journal of the Management Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association
The mission of the Journal of Management Accounting Research (JMAR) is to advance the theory and practice of management accounting through publication of high-quality applied and theoretical research, using any well-executed research method. JMAR serves the global community of scholars and practitioners whose work impacts or is informed by the role that accounting information plays in decision-making and performance measurement within organizations. Settings may include profit and not-for profit organizations, service, retail and manufacturing organizations and domestic, foreign, and multinational firms. JMAR furthermore seeks to advance an understanding of management accounting in its broader context, such as issues related to the interface between internal and external reporting or taxation. New theories, topical areas, and research methods, as well as original research with novel implications to improve practice and disseminate the best managerial accounting practices are encouraged.
JMAR publishes 3 issues per year in Spring, Summer, and Fall, and is indexed in Scopus and ESCI.

A Letter from Our Section President Khim Kelly, University of Central Florida
Dear Management Accounting Section (MAS) Members.
Welcome to the 2023/2024 year!
This year, we are excited to announce that we are looking for even more ways to connect with our members throughout the year. As part of this effort, we are pleased to invite you to join the MAS on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/12007279/)! Please use this platform to connect with the MAS community; to share teaching, research, and practice engagement resources; and to learn about our latest events.
The MAS started the new year with a great program put together by Todd Thornock and Curtis Hall (Co-Directors) at the 2023 AAA Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Todd and Curtis organized 13 concurrent sessions and a panel session on “Teaching Management and Cost Accounting with Data Analytics”. We thank the authors who submitted 92 papers and the 130 volunteers who reviewed, discussed, and moderated for the Annual Meeting!
Dear MAS members, As the incoming Senior Editor of the Journal of Management Accounting Research (JMAR) for the 2022–2024 term, I am excited to announce the editorial team that will serve during my term. We will have a group of 13 Editors who are distinguished scholars ready to work with you, current and future authors and referees, on publishing high-quality and relevant management accounting research. We will also have a great new Editorial Advisory and Review Board with 44 accomplished members.
Continuing JMAR’s mission to promote diverse topics and methodological perspectives, the new editorial team covers all methods of management accounting research. Close to 50% of the team is based outside of the US, which also continues the tradition of a wide geographical representation.Read More
