IECJ publishes cases covering a wide range of topics reflecting the diverse skill set required of management accountants.

Its published cases take learning beyond mere “number-crunching” exercises to require interpretation of data in a decision-making context – making them ideal learning tools for graduate and undergraduate students.

Editorial Staff

The IMA Educational Case Journal (IECJ®) editor is Leif Sjöblom and the managing editor is Susie Duong. The associated editors are Laurie Burney, Margaret Shackell, and Thomas Calderon.

Meet the Editors – IECJ Office Hours 

Do you have a case idea that you want to discuss and get feedback on? Or perhaps an early case draft? Or general questions about IECJ and the requirements and review process?

Members of the IECJ Editorial Board are happy to assist you during the journal’s “office hours” to help authors improve their papers and make the case writing process a productive and rewarding experience.  These open sessions are available to anyone who would like feedback on a case idea, suggestions on writing a case and teaching notes, or clarification on how to address review comments. If you are considering submitting a paper to the IECJ and would like our guidance, please click here to access our office hours calendar which offers appointments in multiple time zones.  If the time slots are not convenient, please feel free to reach out for individual appointments with one of our associate or senior editors at

› Call for Data Sets: We are looking for “raw” data for use in developing teaching cases. This data can be structured or unstructured, newer or older data, and, if desired, cleaned and disguised so there are no privacy or confidentiality issues.

Recipients of IMA Educational Case Journal receive the right to free use of the cases for educational purposes. Supplemental teaching notes are available without charge to IMA Academic members only in myIMA Network in the Teaching Notes Library (you will be prompted to login).

If you are a member of IMA and unable to access IECJ Teaching Notes or have a general question, please email
