Accounting Education is a quarterly international journal devoted to publishing research-based papers and other information on key aspects of accounting education and training of relevance to practitioners, academics, trainers, students and professional bodies. It is a forum for the exchange of ideas, experiences, opinions and research results relating to (a) the preparation of students/trainees for careers in public accounting, managerial accounting, financial management, corporate accounting, controllership, treasury management, financial analysis, internal auditing, and accounting in government and other non-commercial organizations; and (b) the continuing professional education of practitioners. The coverage includes aspects of accounting education and training policy, curriculum issues, computing matters, and accounting research as it impinges on educational or training issues. The journal seeks to make available innovative teaching resource material that can be used by readers in their own institutions. As a necessary corollary to this, the journal seeks to publish papers dealing withthe effectiveness of accounting education or training. In addition to publishing original papers the journal also includes exemplars and reviews relating to what we teach, how we teach it, and how effective our endeavours are in providing an adequate educational and training base for accounting practice.
