Manuscripts should be typed, doubled-spaced. Please use 2.54 cm (1 inch margins) all around. All pages, including footnotes, tables, figures, illustrations, appendices, and references should be serially numbered. In the text, when not in lists or tables, numbers from one through nine should be spelled out, except when used with mathematical, statistical, scientific, or technical units and quantities.
A cover page should contain the following information: title, author’s name and affiliation, the present address, email, telephone, and fax number of the author to whom correspondence should be addressed, and acknowledgements and information on grants received. Authors should not identify themselves within the paper.
An abstract (maximum 250 words) should be presented on the page immediately preceding the text, should include the research question, method of examination, and principal findings, and should be followed by four keywords (to aid in indexing).
Footnotes should be used for extensions where inclusion in the body of the text might disrupt continuity. All footnotes should be automated, numbered consecutively with superscript Arabic numerals, and be the same size and formatting as the main text. Each table, figure, or illustration should be presented on a separate page and bear an Arabic number and title. Accepted papers must be prepared using software acceptable to the managing editor. The data underlying all graphs should be supplied in separate files in ASCII or Excel format. Additional instructions for accepted papers will be provided upon acceptance.
If you use Microsoft Word’s Track Changes function, before submitting your electronic files, please ensure that you accept all changes and turn off Track Changes in your files.
We now accept manuscripts prepared by LaTeX.
Please also refer to the detailed Accounting Perspectives Style Guide (PDF) for formatting instructions.
In their covering letter, authors must attest that neither the submitted manuscript nor a similar one has been published elsewhere and that the manuscript is not currently under review elsewhere. Together with the paper being submitted, authors are asked to include a copy of any other paper, whether or not published elsewhere, that shares data or modelling analysis with the submitted paper. The contribution of the submitted paper must be clearly distinguished from other such papers. If the submitted paper is based on an experiment, survey, or other data manipulations, participants or variables involved in that collection are reflected in the paper, authors are asked to include a memo describing and explaining the circumstances and estimating any effects on the results. The memo may be sent to reviewers.
Inquiries can be addressed to the Editor, Pascale Lapointe-Antunes, by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
