Accounting History is a specialist, international peer-reviewed journal that encourages critical and interpretative historical research on the nature, roles, uses and impacts of accounting and provides a forum for the publication of high-quality manuscripts on the historical development of accounting across all organisational forms. The journal is acknowledged as a premier journal in its field and is a prized resource for academics, practitioners and students who seek to augment understanding of accounting's past and use that understanding to elucidate accounting's present and its possible future development.
