Research Institute for Economics and Business Administration, Kobe University ANNOUNCEMENT:
Japan has one of the largest economies in the world, which holds substantial and growing interest world-wide. There are many English books and journals on Japanese management, but only a few books and no refereed journals on accounting. The Japanese Accounting Review will fill this gap, and meet an existing demand from Japanese and international scholars.
The Japanese Accounting Review (TJAR):
