Meditari Accountancy Research is a double blind refereed research journal. “Meditari” is Latin for constantly pondering, suggesting a journey towards better understandings of accountancy-related matters through research. Meditari Accountancy Research aims to publish research in the main subject areas included in accountancy, as well as research examining other questions of interest to the greater accounting community. The journal welcomes diverse research methods including interdisciplinary approaches.
The primary criterion for publication in Meditari Accountancy Research is the significance of the contribution the article makes to the literature, regardless of the research method used.
Other major criteria to evaluate articles include:
• Subject matter: must be of importance to the accounting discipline;
• Research questions: must fall within the journal’s scope;
• Research: well designed and rigorously executed; and
• Presentation: well written and in accordance with the journal’s style.
Linking the research question(s) with an appropriate research design and theoretical base that allow appropriate inferences to be drawn is of paramount importance. Authors submitting papers should subject the paper to critique by colleagues and others through conferences, seminars and informal communication and revise the article accordingly prior to submission.
The scope of acceptable articles is broad, and papers may deal with any current aspect of accounting, including but not limited to:
• Accounting education;
• Accounting ethics;
• Financial reporting;
• Impact of accounting on organizations;
• Impact of accounting on capital markets;
• Impact of accounting on individuals;
• Management accounting;
• Public sector accounting;
• Regulation of the profession;
• Risk management;
• Social and environmental disclosure; and
Meditari Accountancy Research seeks to communicate to a large and diverse audience, including accounting and management researchers and educators; graduate students; policy makers; practitioners; and regulators. The journal originated at the University of Pretoria in 1993 and, although now fully international, aims to maintain its links to the South African accounting research community.
