The aim of this special issue is to examine financial reporting quality (accounting quality) as reflected in earnings and revenue management activities. We invite high-quality research offering insights into the key emerging new challenges in this area, and are interested in papers that are industry-specific or offer cross-industry comparisons, and which are country-specific or international in content.

Since it is a special issue, we are not bound by methodological restrictions. We are more interested in papers that make significant contribution in understanding earnings and revenue management decisions in various industry or country contexts. We are open to diverse methodologies including data-based mathematical models, empirical research, integrative literature reviews, meta-analysis papers, case studies, experimental research, conceptual frameworks and/or any innovative methods.
