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

Robert Pinsker

 

Hello. I hope everyone is having smooth spring term. Before I begin, I want to again thank everyone who is volunteering within the section this academic year. You are the ones who improve the AIS section each year.

We had a very successful Midyear Meeting in Orlando. My sincerest gratitude goes to AAA for manning the registration desk and overseeing all conference-related issues; Jee-Hae Lim for putting together all of the logistics (and doing so from Asia); Diane Janvrin and the Education Committee for reviewing all of the pedagogical papers; David Wood for going above-and-beyond with not only the research papers, but the New Scholars Consortium as well; and KPMG for their unwavering support of our Section. I want to congratulate again all of the award winners on their fine research...
