The objectives of IJAF are to establish a platform for policy makers, practitioners, regulatory agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex role of interdependencies of accounting and finance in contemporary organisations. It aims to promote a greater understanding, from an international perspective, of recent accounting malpractice in corporate financial management. IJAF focuses on the international dimension of accounting and finance research and practices consistent with the need to transcend the cultural and national boundaries in a globalised economy.


IJAF provides an opportunity to accounting and finance professionals, regulatory agencies/authorities, academics, researchers and policy makers in the fields of accounting and finance and other related disciplines at both national and international levels, to share and exchange ideas and experiences, thereby helping them to develop effective responses to the challenges of the 21st century.


IJAF publishes high quality original manuscripts, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues that addresses important accounting and finance questions in the specific context of a region or topic will be published occasionally in order to promote greater understanding of the internationalisation dimensions of accounting and finance.
