Masters & Doctoral Study in AIS

Monograph:

Researching Accounting as an Information Systems Discipline

Researching Accounting as an Information Systems Discipline is the culmination of over two years of work by the Information Systems Section. The AIS research monograph is intended to fulfill the needs of three primary sets of stakeholders in the IS section. The first objective is to provide a source book for use in AIS doctoral seminars. This objective includes a desire to provide a valuable synthesis of the literature to facilitate broad coverage of the AIS domain within the short confines of semester- or quarter-length courses and to motivate doctoral students to pursue studies in AIS research. The second objective is to provide a guide for existing faculty to maintain the currency of their knowledge in AIS research and to spark some new ideas for future research -- particularly in the emerging frontiers. The third objective is to provide a guide to AIS research that facilitates non-AIS research faculty in the re-tooling process necessary to transform their research programs to the AIS domain, if they should so choose.

The monograph includes the following papers:

Letter from the President

Hello all,

I hope the spring term is going well for all of you. I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about our Midyear Meeting in Newport Beach, CA, JISC 2018 in Durham, NC, and to give a preview of the events coming up for our section.

We enjoyed a great Midyear Meeting in Newport Beach, CA! My sincerest gratitude to all our volunteers who helped make our meeting a great success; Dan O’Leary, meeting coordinator; Andrea Kelton, research paper chair; Hussein Issa, SET coordinator; Diane Janvrin, education paper chair and Chris Wolfe, NSC coordinator. Also, the AAA staff and the Duke hotel staff were top notch. A highlight of the conference is always the awards - congratulations to all of our award winners - our website will soon be updated to reflect your achievements! Your innovative and interesting work is inspiring to all the members of the AIS section. Thanks to the IMA for their generous support of the case award. Also a special thanks to KPMG, they have generously supported our conference for many years now and I greatly appreciate their continued interest and support.

In March, JISC 2018 was a huge success. Thanks to our sponsor, the AICPA, the event was held in Durham, NC at their offices. I was extremely impressed with all the hard work of Pamela Schmidt, conference chair and co-editor; Kimberly Church, assistant chair and Graham Gal, coeditor. I cannot say enough about all the attention to detail from the website to the quality of speakers and to the papers presented. They truly put together an excellent program with participants from both practice and academia. The feedback was very positive and I encourage each of you to read the conference report contained in this newsletter. I look forward to the special conference edition of JIS. The AIS Section has another important event coming up soon - the AIS Bootcamp at the offices of PwC in Minneapolis, MN on May 22. Many thanks to PwC for sponsoring the event and to the education committee for organizing the bootcamp. Thanks to Diane Janvrin, Joy Gray, Kimberly Church and Lorraine Lee. I am happy to announce that there is great interest in the bootcamp - registration is full - however if you wish to be placed on the waitlist please see the conference link in this newsletter.
