As the financial landscape shifts, we are looking for ways to both understand and respond to changes in accounting and finance.

Over the past few years our research has been published in a range of quality journals. Subjects include financial reporting and disclosure, auditing quality, corporate governance, corporate ownership structure, public accounting, management accounting, social and environmental accounting, the accountancy profession, accounting history, Islamic accounting and finance and accounting education.

We also look to increase understanding of the social, economic and political interactions arising through the practice of accounting and auditing. And, through collaboration with leading firms, we are closing the gap that has emerged between academic accounting research and the real world of accountancy practice.
