Author Guidelines

The same author can only have one article published per year in the Journal of Accounting, Management and Governance (JAMG). This rule applies regardless of the position of the individual in the authorship of the articles.

Before submitting an article, authors must ensure that all authors are enrolled in the system. Please ensure that full name, e-mail address, educational institution, ORCID and contact numbers of each of the authors are registered in the journal's system. This is a necessary condition for the article to go through the evaluation of Desk Review.

Remove any identification/mention to the authors of the article in the submitted file. Do not forget to check the "Remove file properties" option in Windows Explorer. Ensuring, therefore, the Blind Peer Evaluation.

 

 1. CONFIGURATION

Paper: A4 (29.7 x 21 cm);

Margins: upper and left 3cm; lower and right 2cm;

Font: Times New Roman, size 12;

Spacing: simple (between characters, words and lines), and indentation (1.25cm) at the beginning of paragraphs;

Size:  The article should contain between 5,000 and 8,000 words, including title, abstract, content itself, tables, figures, notes and bibliographical references;

Pagination: Include the number of pages in the lower right corner of the document.

Details: BOLD should only be used for titles and subtitles; ITALIC should only be used for words in a foreign language; "DOUBLE QUOTES" should be used for direct quotes and sentences of interviewees; and [Brackets] should be used within double-quote text to isolate material that in the original font was enclosed in quotation marks.

 

2. STRUCTURE

Theoretical-empirical articles should follow the following structure: (a) title (Portuguese and English), abstract in English and abstract in Portuguese, (b) introduction (contextualization, problem development and research objective) and review of the empirical literature concerning the problem, (d) results (report of findings, preferably with use of tables and / or charts), (e) discussion (interpretation and interpretation of data), method (description of participants / subjects, instruments, materials / equipment and procedures used to conduct research) implications of results), (f) conclusion or final considerations, (g) references;

Articles of literature review or exclusively theoretical authors are expected to: (a) clearly define a problem, (b) summarize previous research to inform the reader about the state of the research, (c) identify relationships, contradictions, gaps and/or inconsistencies in the literature (d) suggest next research steps to solve the problems identified, (e) References. There is no pre-defined section structure for this type of contribution, so authors should seek a consistent format for the text. It is essential that there is an organizing argument and not just a compilation of research already done.

 

3. TITLE, ABSTRACT AND KEYWORDS

Insert the title at the beginning of the work, with the first letters of each word in capital letters, followed by abstract in English, keywords, abstract in Portuguese and keywords, without identification of the author(s). Works in English should also include title, abstract and keywords in Portuguese.

Title: The title should contain up to 15 words and represent the 'minor summary' of the article's content.

Summary: should contain up to 250 words, and clearly state:

 

- Objective (mandatory): Indicate the purpose of the work, that is, what it intends to demonstrate or describe;

- Method (mandatory in empirical study): Indicate the scientific method employed in conducting the study. In the case of theoretical essays, change the name of the topic to Theoretical Approach and it is recommended that the author(s) indicate the theoretical approach adopted;

Results (mandatory): Briefly state the main results achieved;

- Originality/Relevance (mandatory): Indicate the theoretical gap in which the study is inserted, also presenting the academic relevance of the subject;

- Theoretical/methodological contributions (mandatory): Indicate the main theoretical and/or methodological implications that were reached through the findings of the study;

 

- Social/management contributions (optional): Indicate the main managerial and/or social implications achieved through the findings of the study.

Keywords: between three and five keywords that characterize the work.
