Critical Perspectives on Accounting

An international scholarly accounting journal. Established in 1990, the journal is published in eight issues a year by Elsevier Science in print and online formats. The journal’s notes describe its aim as follows: To "provide a forum for the growing number of accounting researchers and practitioners who realize that conventional theory and practice is (sic) ill-suited to the challenges of the modern environment, and that accounting practices and corporate behavior are inextricably connected with many allocative, distributive, social, and ecological problems of our era." Its approach places it within the framework of the *critical accounting movement, in its challenging of mainstream notions of accounting and auditing. The journal’s auditing focus is mainly on external auditing, and its coverage is international. Web link:
