Request for research participants: Management accounting ethics

Researchers from the International Governance and Performance (IGAP) research centre at Macquarie University, Sydney, are seeking participants for a study that investigates how professional management accountants, or people with management accounting training and qualifications, interpret their organisational role, and how they manage different organisational and professional / ethical obligations.

Researchers are seeking to conduct interviews of approximately one hour with people who are:

  1. working in management accounting roles, or in roles that use management accounting skills; and
  2. members of a professional accounting association.

Participation is entirely voluntarily, and no remuneration will provided. However, the summarised findings of the study will be made available to all participants on request. All individuals and organisations participating in the study will remain anonymous.

If you are interested in participating, please contact the chief investigator, Dr Dale Tweedie, at: dale.tweedie@mq.edu.au.

The ethical aspects of this study have been approved by the Macquarie University Human Research Ethics Committee. If you have any complaints or reservations about any ethical aspect of your participation in this research, you may contact the Committee through the Director, Research Ethics (telephone (02) 9850 7854; email ethics@mq.edu.au). Any complaint you make will be treated in confidence and investigated, and you will be informed of the outcome.
