About the Journal
The Accounting, Organization & Economics (AOE) (ISSN: 2752-7743) is international interdisciplinary journal that is highly focused on the relationships among accounting and human behaviour, organizational structures and activities. This journal also becomes a forum for the publication of the highest quality works that use economic analyses of accounting and organizational issues. Its aim is to develop new theories, frameworks, and conceptual models, as well as summative and critical evaluations of existing theoretical frameworks.
We are open to paradigmatic plurality and multidisciplinary research, but each article must have a solid theoretical grounding and must strive to develop further the tradition to which it adheres. We are committed to the accumulation of knowledge and demand that all articles engage seriously with existing literature. Submissions need to clearly communicate which conversations they wish to be part of or challenge, and what the novel theoretical insights are that their research contributes in relation to existing organizational literatures. It promotes multidisciplinarity through research that engages across disciplinary boundaries; it invites all social science methodologies and methods that provide insights into organizations, organizing and the organized in and between societies. It encourages studies that reflect on the broader implications of their results.
Empirical studies must display professional rigour in data collection and analysis appropriate for the specific approach. Content should make no assumptions about the beliefs or commitments of any reader; contain nothing which might imply that one individual is superior to another on the grounds of age, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, disability or health condition; and use inclusive language throughout. Authors should ensure that writing is free from bias, stereotypes, slang, reference to dominant culture and/or cultural assumptions. We advise to seek gender neutrality by using plural nouns ("academics/scholars") as default/wherever possible to avoid using "he, she," or "he/she." We recommend avoiding the use of descriptors that refer to personal attributes such as age, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, disability or health condition unless they are relevant and valid. These guidelines are meant as a point of reference to help identify appropriate language but are by no means exhaustive or definitive.
We publish three times a year ( August, December, and April), and do not charge any fee for either reviewing the paper or article processing charges (APCs). However, in relation to various expenses such as secretarial work, secondary anti-plagiarism, website maintenance, data storage, and indexing in different databases, we levy UK £110 for every accepted manuscript.
