Abstract

The aim of the Advanced Business and Finance journal is to draw attention to the rising need for interaction among the three fundamental areas of business, namely, accounting, finance and management. As such, this journal is interdisciplinary in nature and publishes original articles from a diverse range of methodological viewpoints (quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods) that touch on any of those three constituents of business either singly or in combination. The themes of potential articles need to be within the representative areas of interest of the wider readership of the journal, that is, both academics and practitioners. Topical issues communicated through letters, review articles and commentaries will also be considered for publication

The aim of the Advanced Business and Finance journal is to draw attention to the rising need for interaction among the three fundamental areas of business, namely, accounting, finance and management.  As such, this journal is interdisciplinary in nature and publishes original articles from a diverse range of methodological viewpoints (quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods) that touch on any of those three constituents of business either singly or in combination.  The themes of potential articles need to be within the representative areas of interest of the wider readership of the journal, that is, both academics and practitioners.  Topical issues communicated through letters, review articles and commentaries will also be considered for publication.

In addition to being a platform that initiates and promotes discussion in the field of business among current scholars, the editorial board has several ideas for growth. One idea is to support emerging academic researchers. We realize that the anticipation and rigour inherent to the publishing process can be daunting.  This challenge is well documented and the article published by DeLange (2005) is worth reading.  Hence, all articles submitted to Advanced Business and Finance will be peer reviewed by a pool of experienced reviewers to ensure academic rigour while endeavouring to provide timely responses. The journal publishes twice yearly and is indexed on major indexing sites (see the Journal’s web page). Being an international journal, geographic diversity is paramount.  Accordingly, the journal will accept papers from all countries based on their originality, novelty, level of interest and significance as long as they meet the publication criteria. Manuscripts from the private sector and government-run businesses will also be considered provided they address the general themes of the journal.  The SME sector constitutes an ideal platform for combined research within the three domains of business (Mc Mahon, 2001).  Contributors are also encouraged to partner with scholars outside the field of business to generate new ideas for the discipline. The need for interdisciplinary research is currently at its peak (Brown, Deletic & Wong, 2015).

As editorial board members and reviewers, we have the required expertise across all disciplines published by the journal. Through our reviews, we will help authors develop their research ideas and gain their voice in research conversations.  My primary research interests are corporate governance and corporate social responsibility, which I have researched through the lens of various management and accounting theoretical bases using quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods (Mahadeo, Oogarah-Hanuman & Soobaroyen, 2011; Soobaroyen & Mahadeo, 2012).  I endeavour to help contributors in any of these areas as well as those in tangential areas to hone their research ideas into publishable material. I look forward to this exciting beginning of the Advanced Business and Finance journal. I hope this cross-fertilization will result in novel thoughts by combining topical issues with the fields of accounting, finance and management.

Bibliography

A focus of research has been the interplay between risk and financial return in capital markets. In this area, I have addressed such issues as the relation between risk (as the variability of outcomes) and returns. This has led to an understanding of how random movements in stock prices (noise) might be manipulated to improve investment performance. Investors’ required return on financial assets (which equates with a firm’s cost of capital as the hurdle rate for its investment activity) is complicated by many factors (personal taxes and the Australian imputation tax system, as examples), which I clarify over a series of articles. I have also contributed with articles that have been critical of the status allocated to such core paradigms in Finance as the Modigliani and Miller propositions, the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), as well as the Fama and French three-factor model. My most important contributions are encapsulated in my book in 2015: Stock Markets, Investments and Corporate Behavior: A Conceptual Framework of Understanding, (author Michael Dempsey, published by Imperial College Press with World Scientific). My contributions across financial markets have also been published in leading international journals, including: Journal of Banking and Finance (2), Financial Analysts Journal (2), European Financial Management (1), Abacus (3), Journal of Investment Management (2), Australian Journal of Management (2), Journal of Business Finance and Accounting (3), Accounting and Business Research (3), Critical Perspectives on Accounting (3), Applied Economics (1), Accounting and Finance (1), Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money (1), Journal of Asset Management (1) and Australian Tax Forum (1).
