Two journals are housed within IGAP:
Managerial Auditing Journal (MAJ - Assurance, Management Performance and Governance)
MAJ provides a dynamic global forum for the examination of current research and practice in auditing and assurance (internal and external; financial and non-financial). MAJ explores and advances related issues in international governance and management performance within the environmental, social and economic contexts. Thus MAJ advances knowledge and research in areas that include the regulatory and professional frameworks of corporate and public sector governance, ethics, risk, and management performance from multi-disciplinary perspectives. Articles, especially those of a more general nature on reporting, should inform readers how the subject matter relates to auditing, assurance, management performance or governance.
MAJ also uniquely addresses the relation between theory and practice by exploring trends, paradigms and perspectives, including the ethical, social, environmental and economic aspects of contemporary assurance, management performance and governance issues. MAJ pushes new boundaries for audit and assurance research and occupies a relative niche in the market by seeking to identify new knowledge and practice through the promotion of a dialogue between academics and practitioners.

AAAJ is a world recognised international interdisciplinary accounting research journal dedicated to the advancement of accounting knowledge through interdisciplinary, critical and historical perspectives. It focuses on research into the interaction between accounting/auditing and their socio-economic, institutional, and political environments. The research it publishes is predominantly informed by the disciplines of sociology, psychology, philosophy, political science, history, and anthropology. The AAAJ editorial board numbers over 50 leading scholars assisted by an ad hoc referee community of over 200 researchers internationally. The journal is co-edited by:
- Professor Guthrie (Macquarie University)
- and Professor Parker (University of South Australia).
AAAJ has been publishing accounting research for 25 years and is now a pre-eminent leader of interdisciplinary accounting research publication. It is consistently ranked in the top 5 to 10 accounting research journals on Scopus metrics, the H Index, most cited articles in Google Scholar, accounting journal esteem surveys and several national accounting research journal rankings. In its own field of interdisciplinary and critical accounting research, AAAJ dominates the field, being consistently rated alongside the journals Accounting, Organisations and Society, and Critical Perspectives on Accounting.
In celebrating AAAJ's quarter century, the editors are committed to continuing to foster a community of inclusive scholarship, breaking new ground, challenging the status quo and supporting interdisciplinary research. They support researchers who seek to escape the iron cage of conservatism, replication and 'safe' research, and instead to dare to be different - it is often the riskiest project or approach that produces the most exciting innovations and discoveries.
