• Aims and Scope


Japan has one of the largest economies in the world, which holds substantial and growing interest world-wide. There are many English books and journals on Japanese management, but only a few books and no refereed journals on accounting. The Japanese Accounting Review will fill this gap, and meet an existing demand from Japanese and international scholars.

Editors: Hidetoshi Yamaji, Masahiro Enomoto, and Akinobu Shuto

Print ISSN: 2185-4785

The Japanese Accounting Review (TJAR) publishes original research devoted to the scholarly analyses of Japanese accounting and its interdependence with other national and international accounting systems. The Review welcomes interesting works in all areas of accounting (including information systems, auditing and assurance services, financial accounting, management accounting, and taxation) using relevant methods (including analytical, empirical, experimental, and field study methods). While there is a special focus on issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region, the Review intends to target innovative research and ideas from all parts of the world.
