Database of AIS Articles


Dr. Paul D. Hutchison, at the University of North Texas, recently updated his AIS Research Database. This is a fully searchable, Microsoft Access database that contains the titles to 1,350 AIS articles and other items from 1986 (or initial year of publication) to 2012. Of note, this is the only known electronic database that contains Advances in Accounting Information Systems and Review of Business Information Systems (formerly Review of Accounting Information Systems) articles.

Here are the coverage dates for the journals currently included in the database: Journal of Information Systems (Fall 1986 - Fall 2011), International Journal of Accounting Information Systems (formerly Advances in Accounting Information Systems) (1992 - December 2011), and Review of Business Information Systems (formerly Review of Accounting Information Systems) (Winter 1997 - Spring 2012).

Global Perspectives on Accounting Education

Global Perspectives on Accounting Education is a new online peer-reviewed journal that publishes research and instructional resources relevant to accounting faculty and accounting education worldwide. The journal welcomes manuscripts from any and all countries. Manuscripts submitted may be empirical, non-empirical, teaching resources, or a replication of prior research. This journal is unique in that manuscripts considered for publication can make either a direct or indirect contribution to accounting education. An example of an indirect contribution could be a study that bridges education in accounting and other disciplines. Additional information regarding the journal"s editorial board, editorial policy, submission guidelines, and review criteria can be viewed at http://gpae.bryant.edu

Electronic submission, review, and submission fee payment shortens the review period resulting in quicker feedback to authors. In addition, online publication allows articles to be posted to the web site as soon as they are accepted and formatted, reducing the lead time between acceptance and publication.

Please share information regarding this journal with colleagues, both in accounting and in other disciplines (business and non-business). Access to the published papers is free.


New Monarch Software for Education Program

Datawatch Corporation is launching a new higher education program for its Monarch "Report Mining" software. Monarch mines and combines data from existing accounting, ERP and other reports, plus PDF reports, spreadsheets, databases, etc. for programming-free analysis, export to Excel and much more.

Letter from the President

Hello all,

I am looking forward to serving as your president this year. I want to start by thanking my predecessors, Rob Pinsker and Tina Loraas, for their excellent service and commitment to our section. I also want to thank all the new volunteers for the 2017-2018 academic year. I greatly appreciate your willingness to serve and move the AIS section forward.

In the upcoming year, I plan to continue Rob’s work regarding our commitment as a section to mentoring AIS Ph.D. students. I would like to start by taking this opportunity to highlight several important initiatives that I believe will be valuable resources to our new AIS scholars. First, our newly created websites for AIS Research Proposals and Dissertation Committee Support have been launched. AIS researchers looking to improve their research can submit one-page proposals to get early feedback from senior AIS researchers. AIS doctoral candidates who need dissertation committee support can request help from senior AIS researchers at other institutions via our new website. We hope making these important connections available will encourage more Ph.D. students to join our AIS community and continue to improve our body of research.
