JoMaC - Journal of Management Control

The Journal of Management Control (JoMaC) is an international journal published by Springer concerned with the formal, information-based routines and procedures managers use to maintain or alter patterns in organizational activities.

The Institute of Management Accounting and Control (IMC) actively supports JoMaC and Utz Schäffer serves as editor of the journal. Moreover, submissions to the Annual Conference of Management Accounting Research are also considered for publication in the journal, if requested by the authors.

JoMaC was founded as “Zeitschrift für Planung und Unternehmenssteuerung” in 1990 and has a strong reputation as a dedicated academic journal open to high quality research on all aspects of management control.

The journal covers such topics as: the role of management control systems in the management of companies and non-profit organizations; the design and use of planning systems for production, marketing, logistics and other fields of use; the interaction between strategic and operational aspects of management control; the role of management accountants and other internal and external service providers, such as financial accountants, auditors and consultants; and change and the sustainability of management control systems.

JoMaC is available in more than 7,000 libraries and institutions around the world. It is pub­lished four times a year in print and online at

Journal of Management Control especially welcomes empirical and analytical papers reflecting both methodological rigor and practical relevance that make a significant contribution to literature.
