Accounting Theory and Practice

  • ISSN: 2949-9453
The Journal of The Forum For Indian Accounting Research (FFIAR) Accounting Theory and Practice (AT&P) publishes original research in all areas of accounting such as financial accounting, management accounting and control, auditing, taxation. Papers with an accounting or disclosure-related component from related fields such as information economics, capital markets, corporate finance, corporate governance, law, contracting, public policy, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility are also welcome. The primary focus of the journal is on issues related to India and other emerging markets, but it is not restricted to this focus and is open to articles from other settings. It welcomes all methods such as analytical, empirical, historical, content analysis, computational, lab and field experimental, survey, and qualitative field and case study, based on disciplines such as economics, statistics, psychology, and sociology. Consistent with the principles of Responsible Research in Business and Management (www.rrbm.network) the journal aims to serve society through rigorous research on topics of interest to academics as well as practitioners and policy-makers. We believe that this is best done by engaging with phenomena in the Indian and emerging markets contexts. We therefore especially invite research on topics and contexts salient to India and other emerging markets, and their environment. Theories developed or applied in the papers sent for publication should be placed within the context they are investigating. In academic research, rigour comes from engaging with the literature deeply, marshalling the evidence carefully to show that it favours one explanation over other competing ones, and interpreting results cautiously. In contrast to journalistic articles and consulting reports, academic research has a cumulative impact because each piece builds on previous pieces to form a coherent whole. Therefore it is necessary for each paper to explain how it adds to the literature beyond the previous papers. It should not just say that it contributes beyond previous research on those topics; it should also say what a reader would have believed based on the previous literature, and how should the new evidence change that reader's beliefs. In addition to papers that use traditional methods, we welcome interesting descriptive studies which explain the academic implications of the phenomena being described. AT&P encourages data and code sharing through repositories such as the Open Science Framework (OSF), and will recognize publications that are accompanied by data and source code through OSF Badges (https://www.cos.io/initiatives/badges). Types of submissions Most papers published will be original research articles, including field and case studies. The journal will also publish perspective papers that describe institutional details, direct attention to under-researched or new phenomena, or survey the literature to identify future research opportunities. Authors planning to submit perspective articles are encouraged to check with the editors first about the suitability of the topic. Perspective papers will be peer reviewed. Papers are published online with worldwide open access.

An International Journal Devoted to the Behavioural, Organizational & Social Aspects of Accounting Accounting, Organizations & Society is a leading international interdisciplinary journal concerned with the relationships among accounting and human behaviour, organizational and institutional structures and processes, and the wider socio-political environment of the enterprise. It aims to challenge and extend our understanding of the roles of accounting and related emergent and calculative practices in the construction of economic and societal actors, and their modes of economic organizing, including ways in which such practices influence and are influenced by the development of market and other infrastructures. We aim to publish high quality work which draws upon diverse methodologies and theoretical developments from across the social sciences, and which illuminates the development, processes and effects of accounting within its organizational, political, historical and social contexts. AOS particularly wishes to attract innovative work which analyses accounting phenomena to advance theory development in, for example, the psychological, social psychological, organizational, sociological and human sciences. The journal's unique focus covers, but is not limited to, such topics as: • The roles of accounting in organizations and society; • The contribution of accounting practices to the emergence, maintenance and transformation of organizational and societal institutions; • The roles of accounting in the development of new organizational and institutional forms, both public and private; • The relationships between accounting, auditing, accountability, ethics and social justice; • Behavioural studies of accounting practices and the providers, verifiers, and users of accounting information, including cognitive aspects of accounting, judgment and decision-making processes, and the behavioural aspects of planning, control and valuation processes; • Organizational process studies of the design, implementation and use of accounting, information and management control systems; • Accounting for human actors, and the impact of accounting technologies upon human subjectivities and evaluations; • The roles of accounting in shaping the design, operation and delivery of public service providers, not-for-profit entities, government bodies, as well as local, national and transnational governmental organizations; • Social, organizational, political, and psychological studies of the standard-setting process, and the effects of accounting regulations and rules; • The roles and practices of audit, auditors and accounting firms in the construction and understanding of organizational and societal valuations; • Accounting for sustainability and the environment, including studies of environmental and social reporting; • Historical studies of the emergence, transformation and impact of accounting calculations, practices, and representations, including the development and the changing roles of accounting theories, techniques, individual and teams of practitioners and their firms, professional associations, and regulators.

Addictive Behaviors

  • ISSN: 0306-4603
  • 5 Year impact factor: 4.3
  • Impact factor: 4.4
Addictive Behaviors is an international peer-reviewed journal publishing high quality human research on addictive behaviors and disorders since 1975. The journal accepts submissions of full-length papers and short communications on substance-related addictions such as the abuse of alcohol, drugs and nicotine, and behavioral addictions involving gambling and technology. We primarily publish behavioral and psychosocial research, but our articles span the fields of psychology, sociology, psychiatry, epidemiology, social policy, medicine, pharmacology and neuroscience. While theoretical orientations are diverse, the emphasis of the journal is primarily empirical. That is, sound experimental design combined with valid, reliable assessment and evaluation procedures are a requisite for acceptance. However, innovative and empirically oriented case studies that might encourage new lines of inquiry are accepted as well. Studies that clearly contribute to current knowledge of etiology, prevention, social policy or treatment are given priority. Scholarly commentaries on topical issues, systematic reviews, and mini reviews are encouraged. We especially welcome multimedia papers that incorporate video or audio components to better display methodology or findings. Studies can also be submitted to Addictive Behaviors' companion title, the open access journal Addictive Behaviors Reports, which has a particular interest in 'non-traditional', innovative and empirically-oriented research such as negative/null data papers, replication studies, case reports on novel treatments, and cross-cultural research.

Advanced Engineering Informatics

  • ISSN: 1474-0346
  • 5 Year impact factor: 8.7
  • Impact factor: 8.8
The science of supporting knowledge-intensive activities Advanced computing methods and related technologies are changing the way engineers interact with the information infrastructure. Explicit knowledge representation formalisms and new reasoning techniques are no longer the sole territory of computer science. For knowledge-intensive tasks in engineering, a new philosophy and body of knowledge called Engineering Informatics is emerging. Advanced Engineering Informatics solicits research papers with particular emphases both on 'knowledge' and 'engineering applications'. As an international Journal, original papers typically: • Report progress in the engineering discipline of applying methods of engineering informatics. • Have engineering relevance and help provide the scientific base to make engineering decision-making more reliable, spontaneous and creative. • Contain novel research that demonstrates the science of supporting knowledge-intensive engineering tasks. • Validate the generality, power and scalability of new methods through vigorous evaluation, preferably both qualitatively and quantitatively. In addition, the Journal welcomes high quality review articles that summarise, compare, and evaluate methodologies and representations that are proposed for the field of engineering informatics. Similarly, summaries and comparisons of full-scale applications are welcomed, particularly those where scientific shortcomings have hindered success. Typically, such papers have expanded literature reviews and discussion of findings that reflect mastery of the current body of knowledge and propose novel additions to contemporary research. Papers missing explicit representation and use of knowledge, such as those describing soft computing techniques, mathematical optimization methods, pattern recognition techniques, and numerical computation methods, do not normally qualify for publication in the Journal. Papers must illustrate contributions using examples of automating and supporting knowledge intensive tasks in artifacts-centered engineering fields such as mechanical, manufacturing, architecture, civil, electrical, transportation, environmental, and chemical engineering. Papers that report application of an established method to a new engineering subdomain will qualify only if they convincingly demonstrate noteworthy new power, generality or scalability in comparison with previously reported validation results. Finally, papers that discuss software engineering issues only are not in the scope of this journal.
