The aim of the Management Control journal is to communicate the results of high quality theoretical and empirical studies. The journal publishes articles that have international appeal and are able to integrate the traditional values of Italian researches in the field of accounting and business administration with the recent studies carried out in the international context. Thus, the Management Control journal intends to encourage the process of internationalization of academic researches.
The articles must be methodologically and theoretically sound and should deal with one of the themes that fall in the broad area of management control systems. The editors consider articles for publication which fit into one or more of the following categories:

1. Planning and Budgeting Processes, including Scenario Analysis and Forecasting;

2. Cost and Performance Accounting and Management;

3. Management Information System, including Recording and Reporting;

4. Management Audit;

5. Link between Management Control Systems and Strategy;

6. Control and New Forms of Organization;

7. Control, Power and Culture;

8. Risk Management;

9. Link between Theory and Practice;

10. Research Methods for Management Control;

11. International Best Practices.

The articles will be submitted to a double blind review. Preliminarily, an initial assessment will be carried out by the Editor-in-chief to verify if the article fits with the aim/scope of the journal.
