The BRIA Editors 

Steve Salterio


Steve Salterio is the Senior Editor of BRIA having been appointed effective June 1, 2017 with his term ending on May 31, 2020.  All new manuscripts submitted to BRIA after June 1 will be handled by this Editorial Team.  All manuscripts in process before June 1, 2017 will continue to be handled by Rick Hatfield and his team.  With the odd exception, this means that the rest of 2017 and all of 2018’s volumes of BRIA will contain papers accepted by Rick and his team.  Hence, they will remain on the masthead until the end of 2018. This team will be on the masthead for 2019-2021.

BRIA Editors have full acceptance rights, subject to final (and what will be mostly a pro forma) review by the Senior Editor. Editors select reviewers (normally an Editorial Board member and one ad hoc) and make decisions on manuscripts post review.  Editors may recommend to the Senior Editor “desk rejects,” where the paper clearly is not at the stage for consideration for publication in BRIA.  The Senior Editor will establish an appeal process, but normally the decisions of the Editors are final.

Annie Farrell

Annie Farrell is a faculty member at Miami University located in beautiful Ohio. I asked Annie to be an Editor of BRIA for several reasons. First, she is a strong management accounting scholar who has served at several universities and hence is familiar with diverse research cultures. Second, Annie travels to both US and international conferences so she has a broad perspective on management accounting research. Third, Annie is an active scholar having published in the Accounting Review and Contemporary Accounting Research in the last five years (as well as an obscure finance journal – JFE). As Editor, Annie will handle most management accounting experimental papers with me acting as backup when she is in conflict of interest or overworked.

Kevin Jackson

Kevin Jackson is an associate professor at the University of Illinois at CU.  I first met Kevin many years ago at a CAR Conference (while he was still a doctoral student I believe) and he was a co-author on one of the papers presented. Kevin has progressed into being a strong scholar in the area of financial accounting
experimental research (with papers published in all the normal outlets including TAR and CAR). He takes over the BRIA portfolio in this area from Brooke Elliott who will be moving to TAR under their new regime.  While this is Kevin’s first masthead appointment I have seen his work as a reviewer when I have edited for other journals.  Financial Accounting experimental researchers can be assured that their papers are in good hands with Kevin and the team of editorial board members he brought along with him.

Christopher Koch

Europe's addition to the BRIA team is audit researcher Christopher Koch who is a Professor at Mainz University in Germany (or more precisely - Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz ). Christopher has published in AJPT, EAR, AOS and TAR among other outlets.  Christopher holds a Chair in Corporate Governance and Auditing at Mainz and is a graduate of Mannheim University. Christopher has an extensive international conference travel history and spent time visiting universities in the United States and Canada as well as participating fully in European Behavioral Audit Research.  Christopher will helps me ensure that international manuscripts do not have to overcome the hurdle of "not done here" that so often afflicts international manuscripts at North American journals.

Bertrand Malsch

Bertrand is a colleague of mine at Queen's University where I have had the pleasure of working with him on interdisciplinary behavioral and social research.  Our
paper in AJPT sets out some editorial standards for assessing the quality of field research done from both a positivist and an interpretivist perspective.  Bertrand brings a strong record of publishing in accounting (AOS, CAR, AJPT) with interests in auditing, corporate governance and management accounting in addition to publishing in management journals (JMS) to his first masthead experience as an Editor with full decision rights.  Bertrand and his colleagues will not doubt attract strong field research to BRIA.  He will handle most of the more interpretivistic studies whereas I will handle the more positivist ones.  I am looking forward to building on Theresa Libby's attempt to incorporate more field research into BRIA.  Indeed, I recently published (with co-authors Kenno and McCracken) a how to do it field research paper in BRIA at the request Editor Rick Houston.  If this does not demonstrate we are serious about being a broad based behavioral and social journal I do not know what will.  As being one of the rare active researchers who was around when BRIA was founded, BRIA may still live up to its aims of being the AOS of North America.  Not a bad goal.

Donna Bobek Schmitt

New BRIA Editor Donna Bobek Schmitt brings a variety of experience to her position as an editor.  Currently at University of South Carolina she previously served
at the University of Central Florida which has the distinction of being the only US based PhD program that focuses solely on social and behavioral accounting.  Donna will be the lead on behavioral tax manuscripts as well as many of the ethics papers that we receive given her publishing record in both areas.  Donna has published in JATA, AOS, JBE, and other journals providing her with an in-depth understanding of what it takes to make a high quality contribution to the literature.  She previously edited Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research hence brings editorial experience with her to the team. Welcome Donna.

David Smith

University of Queensland's David Smith is the Australia/Asia-Pacific member of the Editor Team.  David brings extensive experience in the Australia-Pacific community including a long record of publication in key accounting journals including AOS, MAR, BRIA, and more.  Lately, David has specialized in positivist field studies of management accounting and also brings a strong interest in the not for profit sector to the role.  While field studies are his recent passion he has extensive experience with survey based accounting research. David has also served on the Centre of Excellence Panel (Australasia) for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) bringing that vital research connection to our team.  David will be handling a selection of management accounting field studies, the occasional survey paper and helping out with methodological papers.

Doug Stevens

Georgia State’s Doug Stevens brings his expertise in experimental markets to BRIA – an area where I think we can do a lot more to welcome this somewhat under-used method in accounting research.  I am counting on Doug and his team on the Editorial Board to attract strong experimental markets papers (including replications) to BRIA.  Doug has published in the normal set of accounting journals (including TAR, CAR and BRIA) was well as some of the key experimental economics journals.  Doug, as might be expected, will be handling most of the experimental markets papers we receive.
