AAA Publications

Retraction of articles related to James E. Hunton

The American Accounting Association has retracted 25 articles, and one section of one article, from its journal collection based on: the pattern of misconduct identified in the investigation summary, "Report of Judith A. Malone, Bentley University Ethics Officer, Concerning Dr. James E. Hunton (2014);" the October 2014 supplement to that report; and the coauthors' inability to provide data or other information supporting the existence of primary data, or to confirm that their studies were conducted as described in the published articles. Consistent with the findings in the Bentley University investigation summary, the Association review team found no evidence that Dr. Hunton’s coauthors were aware of or complicit in Dr. Hunton's actions. Click here to view the list of articles.
