Research and Resources

Applied research is a critical source of knowledge for our programs, and our faculty plays an active role in contributing to the growing international body of research. Among other efforts, Saint Mary’s University hosts symposia on relevant co-operative management topics. In 2013, we hosted a symposium on International Co-operative Governance.

Starting in October 2012, the International Journal of Co-operative Management was published in association with Saint Mary’s University. This journal has been active since 2003 and publishes peer reviewed articles on a range of relevant management topics.

The inaugural issue of the new Journal of Co-operative Accounting and Reporting (JCAR) was launched in August 2012. The journal is an open access, peer-reviewed and refereed international journal published by the Centre of Excellence in Accounting and Reporting for Co-operatives (CEARC). JCAR provides an intellectual platform for international scholars and promotes the study of accountancy and reporting for co-operatives, credit unions, and mutuals. Download the latest version from
