More About This Textbook

Overview

Advances in Public Interest Accounting is a research publication with two major aims. First, to provide a forum for researchers concerned with critically appraising and significantly transforming conventional accounting theory, practice, teaching and research. Second, to increase the social self-awareness of accounting practitioners, educators, and researchers, encouraging them to assume a greater responsibility for the profession's social role. We seek original manuscripts exploring all facets of this broad agenda. Illustrative of these aims, authors are concerned with:

• expanding accounting's focus beyond the behavior of individual corporate entities, encompassing the conflicts of interest within the accounting-regulatory process and effected groups;

• exploring alternatives to traditional economic and sociology models, beyond conventional efficiency and profitability measures of corporate performance;

• recognizing and examining the influences of gender and feminist theory, class and race, on accounting practice, education, and research;

• incorporating the significance of accounting as a communicative practice, as social dialogue, and as a social arbiter;

• recognizing and examining the effect of accounting practice on environmental issues and on the externalities imposed on local and global communities;

• examining accounting's participation in multinational expansion, consolidations, and changing economies undergoing transformations, such as Eastern and Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union, and the European Community;

• addressing the impact of new advances in informationtechnologies.
