Accounting History is a specialist, international peer-reviewed journal that encourages critical and interpretative historical research on the nature, roles, uses and impacts of accounting and provides a forum for the publication of high-quality manuscripts on the historical development of accounting across all organisational forms. The journal is acknowledged as a premier journal in its field and is a prized resource for academics, practitioners and students who seek to augment understanding of accounting's past and use that understanding to elucidate accounting's present and its possible future development.

We would like to encourage AFAANZ members to submit papers on all aspects of accounting history research (there are no submission fees). To submit a paper, start HERE
