Journal

Accounting and the Public Interest

Accounting and the Public Interest is an academic journal published by the Public Interest Section of the American Accounting Association. The journal takes the view that accounting activities have societal impact. We welcome research in a wide variety of areas such as, but not limited to: sustainability accounting and reporting; professional and business ethics; corporate social responsibility and governance; regulation; and social justice. We welcome innovative research designs along with more traditional ones. The common thread among this wide array of research areas is the requirement that each study and its findings be grounded in the public interest by situating the study within a historical, social, or political context, and by providing guidance for responsible action.
