European Accounting Review Special issue on New directions in earnings management and financial statement fraud research
01 March 2016
Author(s):Ignace de Beelde and Messod Beneish

We propose to do so by studying actual cases of fraud: these are firms that have been indicted or admitted to having manipulated earnings.
