Opportunities for Research and Publication in Accounting: A Preliminary Study on Academic Journals Published in English and Available at the CAPES’s Basis
This paper uses an exploratory approach to learn some of the characteristics of accounting journals published in English and available at the CAPES Periodicals Portal. This study’s sample is composed of the journals that have the words “accounting”, “auditing”, “cost” and “accountability” in their title. A content analysis was carried out of the journals’ editorial boards, guides for authors and aim/focus in order to classify the sample chosen. This classification relied on the following aspects: country of origin, electronic distributor, focus, frequency, blind review, indexing with the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), indexing with Scopus and impact factor according to Journal Citation Reports (JCR). This paper’ main contribution is to identify and classify academic publications on accounting in English available at the CAPES portal, to encourage Brazilian researchers to broaden their horizons by informing them of the range of publications available.
