Journal of Fraud Research

The Journal of Fraud Research is intended for parties that are interested in the practical  applications of fraud research. The intended readership consists of both researchers and 

practitioners. The emphasis of the journal is on applications, not the statistical methodology 

used to derive the applications.  Thus, any empirical work should be clearly outlined so that a 

wide spectrum audience can follow the practical applications of the manuscript.


The mission of the Journal of Fraud Research is to support researchers and

practitioners in the application of fraud examination, forensic accounting, and other issues 

involving accounting and ethics.
