MAJ provides a dynamic global forum for the examination of current research and practice in auditing and assurance (internal and external; financial and non-financial). MAJ explores and advances related issues in international governance and management performance within the environmental, social and economic contexts. Thus MAJ advances knowledge and research in areas that include the regulatory and professional frameworks of corporate and public sector governance, ethics, risk, and management performance from multi-disciplinary perspectives. Articles, especially those of a more general nature on reporting, should inform readers how the subject matter relates to auditing, assurance, management performance or governance.
The key subject areas addressed by MAJ include:
Manuscripts submitted for publication may cover a broad range of research approaches including empirical, experimental, explanatory, case-based analysis, surveys, field studies, conceptual, archival, or critical. The manuscripts may also have an analytical, theoretical or methodological focus. The editors also welcome manuscripts incorporating subject matter from other disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. economics, psychology, sociology, law and management).
Research submitted must be rigorous and relevant to readers of the journal, which includes members of the academic and professional communities and policy-makers.
The contemporary approach to auditing and assurance is reflected in MAJ, which takes its readers beyond traditional conventions and looks at the ways in which contemporary auditors and assurance providers are analysing governance, risk management and performance matters.
MAJ also uniquely addresses the relation between theory and practice by exploring trends, paradigms and perspectives, including the ethical, social, environmental and economic aspects of contemporary assurance, management performance and governance issues. MAJ pushes new boundaries for audit and assurance research and occupies a relative niche in the market by seeking to identify new knowledge and practice through the promotion of a dialogue between academics and practitioners.
MAJ presents a wide range of material relevant to a broad readership whose interests span all areas of audit and assurance practice. By exploring current practices, ideas and experience, it provides a framework of explanation and guidance on developments and research, as well as perspectives on professional and career development. Papers accepted for publication are double blind-refereed to ensure academic rigour and integrity.
