Accounting journals can keep you plugged in to what is happening and give you information that will help your business. Generally, you won’t have to spend a lot on an accounting magazine and you’ll get your money back in spades.
Join an accounting professional association
Many professional associations will send their own accounting journal to members. You'll get the benefits of the association as well as the information from the accounting magazine.
Order back issues of articles from accounting magazines
If you find an article title that you think may help your business, order a back issue so you can read it. Staying informed on your industry and different ways of doing things can make a big difference to your business. Most accounting publications will allow you to order a single article or the entire issue for a fee.
Use electronic versions of CPA journals
Many publications are providing electronic archives. If your professional association has a publication, try looking on their website for information. In addition, most colleges and universities have access to electronic databases.
Read both the articles and the advertisements
Although you may be tempted to skip over the ads in accountancy journals, you'll find that most will be targeted towards accountants. You can find deals on software, office equipment and other materials. Skim over the ads occasionally to see what's new.
