JFAR Editor’s Message

As the incoming editor of the Journal of Forensic Accounting Research (JFAR), I take this opportunity to wish you a happy, healthy, safe and prosperous New Year! First and foremost, I would like to thank Professor Charles Bailey for getting JFAR started and maintaining its good quality. My sincere gratitude is to the Forensic Accounting Section (FAS) of the AAA for reposing confidence in my scholarly abilities to serve as JFAR Editor.

As part of my priority tasks when taking on the JFAR helm, I am planning to continue prior efforts to expand the Journal’s scope while simultaneously improving the quality and enhancing the quantity of submissions. I know this is a tall order and therefore, I am looking for the collective support of the AAA Forensic Accounting Section in achieving this desirable outcome.

I expect to be in St. Louis for the 2019 Forensic Accounting Section Research Conference from March 1-2 and will seek your advice in developing an effective strategic plan for advancing and sustaining JFAR.
