Instructional Cases, Teaching Notes, and Supplementary Materials


Incorporation of JACR within AP

As part of the CAAA's plan to offer more services of interest to its members, in 2007 it took over the publication of accounting cases previously offered by The Journal of Accounting Case Research (JACR). Eldon Gardner, the former Editor of JACR, became an Associate Editor of AP with the responsibility of managing the review process for cases.  

Guidelines for Instructional Case Writers

Accounting Perspectives welcomes instructional cases! Instructional cases should include a section at the end of the case that discusses the case learning objectives and implementation guidance. Teaching notes should follow at the very end of the document.  

Case Learning Objectives and Implementation Guidance

This section should include an overview of the case and its learning objectives, information about any specialized knowledge required and sources for obtaining that knowledge. Implementation guidance should address the courses that the case is best suited for and the level of student maturity required to fully appreciate the case material. In addition, the amount of time that will need to be devoted in and out of class and the nature of prior preparation that would be useful should be noted. Other pedagogical guidance such as the use of teams or other such approaches should be provided.

Classroom Testing

All case submissions should report the extent and type of classroom testing that has been conducted and provide evidence of the effectiveness of the case in achieving its objectives.

Teaching Notes

As mentioned earlier, the Teaching Notes should be appended at the very end of the submission. The teaching notes will be reviewed as part of the submission. The quality of the Teaching Notes is a major acceptance criterion for the case.

Although they will not be published in the journal to enhance the usefulness of the cases for instructional purposes, the Teaching Notes will be made available to full member subscribers to Accounting Perspectives through the journal’s website (see below).
