Looking for E-journals

The Bruno Library subscribes to a large number of accounting journals in electronic format directly from the publisher.  If you have a particular journal you'd like to look at, go to the E-Resources search page and put in the journal title.  The results list will show you the availability of the journal in our various databases or from the publisher, along with the range of dates offered.

Journal of accounting, auditing & finance
