• Aims and Scope


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.
We will do our best to speed up the refereeing process: We aim to have a first decision within three months; and for papers requested for "revise & resubmit", we aim to make an "accept or reject" decision within two revisions. With these efforts, we hope to shorten the publication process to about 8 months, from when a paper is first submitted to online publication.
