The Accounting Finance and Governance Review, (formerly the Irish Accounting Review: ISSN 0791-9638) is the official journal of the Irish Accounting and Finance Association (the premier association of Accounting and Finance academics at higher education establishments in Ireland) has been published since 1994. In addition to its unique Irish emphasis, it has always had a significant international focus, in both its editorial board and in the source of papers it has published. This is reflected in the name change, and change in editorial policy, in 2013, which sought to signal its focus more clearly. The journal is dedicated to publishing high-quality original scholarly work in accounting, finance and governance (which reflects the focus of the scholarly interest and research activity of its readers). The vast majority of papers published reflect the use of international data and focus on issues of wide significance, and the authors (and editorial board members) are drawn from a broad intercontinental academic community. The journal uses rigorous standards of peer review, utilising well-established academics as reviewers and as members of its editorial board.
