Editor for The Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR)

The Publications Committee of the International Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association (IAS) is seeking a journal editor for The Journal of International Accounting Research (JIAR) which is the section’s journal.

The Journal of Internal Accounting Research (JIAR) is dedicated to the dissemination of quality research covering such issues as differences in accounting practices across multiple jurisdictions; the institutional and cultural factors that help explain differences in accounting practices worldwide; practices in a single country that have international implications; and the effects of the variability of international accounting practices on users.

 The journal editor is responsible for identifying regular and ad hoc editorial board members and associate editors, managing the inflow, review, and publication of submitted manuscripts, and promoting the journal internationally to increase its stature and visibility. A particular challenge will be to increase the journal’s ranking in the various indices followed by Harzing.com.

The successful candidate will be an individual with significant academic experience and a lengthy record of research and scholarship, with at least some evidence of interest and publication in International Accounting. Preference will be given to candidates who can provide a commitment of financial and administrative/secretarial support from the candidate's home institution.

The initial appointment is for a period of three years, with the possibility of one-year extensions thereafter. Interested candidates should submit a current curriculum vitae and a letter of support from their dean or associate dean. The JIAR editor is a member of, and reports to, the Publications Committee of the IAS.
