China Accounting and Finance Review (CAFR)

Established in 1999, China Accounting and Finance Review (CAFR) is the first refereed journal of accounting and finance published in the Greater China Region. CAFR is widely regarded as an “A” journal by top Chinese universities, such as Tsinghua University, Fudan University, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and Central University of Finance and Economics.

CAFR is published quarterly by the School of Accounting and Finance at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, with its emphasis on disseminating accounting and finance research from China to the international community, and vice versa. CAFR welcomes high-quality submissions of general interests in all areas of accounting and finance, including those not necessarily focused on China.

All subject areas of accounting and finance research related but not necessarily to China, and all research methodologies, be they analytical, behavioural, conceptual, empirical, or experimental, are within the ambit of the journal. The overriding concern is the rigorous study of important issues in accounting and finance. Besides what might be termed traditional research, CAFR especially welcomes original and innovative research on accounting and finance.
