About the book

Interdisciplinary research necessitates an integration of disciplines in a collaborative approach. Accounting is an important decision-making tool for managers in every kind of business decision making therefore the accounting discipline can not be in isolation from the business itself. Specifically contemporary topics in strategic management and accounting such as corporate governance, innovation, inter-organizational relationships, and internationalization and their links to accounting in the form of blockchain technologies, earnings management, accounting quality, and ethics. Interdisciplinary research in accounting and strategic management, necessarily challenges each of these disciplines to deploy their own theories, analytical skills, and tools. The outcome of such efforts offers a holistic perspective on the business as a whole offering insights not only for researchers but also for practitioners.

Overall, the topics that are covered in this book will open up new avenues of research for scholars both in accounting and strategic management literature and offer unique insights to practitioners and decision-makers. This book is a must-read for everyone interested in novel perspectives in business research and practice.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Mia Vulovic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
