Overview & Aims

Empirical research in management accounting has advanced knowledge and bridged the gap between theory and practices in the field of management accounting. Research in management accounting contributes to the continuous improvement and evolution of management accounting practices. As in all theory development and the accumulation of scientific knowledge, replication studies play a vital role (see Anderson & Maxwell, 2017; Makel et al., 2012). Replication research aims to assess the robustness and contribute to “empirical generalization” (Hubbard et al., 1998, p. 243) of the findings of the original study. Replication types can be classified into (1) close replication and (2) differentiated replication (Lindsey & Ehrenberg, 1993). In a close replication study, all the known conditions (e.g., sampling procedure, measurement, and analysis techniques) are kept almost the same or at least very similar, while in a differentiated replication study, deliberate variations of the known conditions are adopted.

To date, there are relatively limited replication studies in management accounting research. We note that Bruggen et al. (2021), for example, have devoted a special issue to publishing replication studies in experimental management accounting. We believe that a special issue focusing on replication in “survey-based” management accounting research will complement Bruggen et al. (2021) and help to further validate and add credibility, reliability, and robustness to some of the previous survey-based studies in management accounting. This Special Issue aims to provide a research forum for researchers to disseminate their replication results, relying on a survey-based methodology in management accounting research

A Special Issue on Sustainable Finance

Sustainable finance seeks to create long-term value by tackling global issues such as climate change, pollution, depletion of natural resources, and social inequality, to name a few. The efficiency of capital markets plays a crucial role in facilitating sustainable finance. By efficiently directing capital towards sustainability goals, capital markets can promote sustainability in business operations, investment, and corporate governance. Sustainability-oriented investors can also exert pressure on companies, demanding that corporate managers focus more on sustainability goals, ultimately benefiting all stakeholders.

Given its significance, it is not surprising that sustainable finance has become an important topic. Yet, research in this area remains relatively nascent, leaving both academics and practitioners eager to gain a deeper understanding of these issues at both regional and global scales. In this context, Accounting and Finance is launching a Special Issue on Sustainable Finance.

We welcome all aspects of research in sustainable finance, including theoretical and empirical studies. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, corporate finance, asset pricing and derivatives, behavioural finance, and financial markets.
