Thank you to the entire executive committee for overseeing our section’s health and operations amidst unprecedented times.
Looking forward, I am excited to continue supporting our mission of encouraging excellence in research and education at the intersection of accounting and behavioral and organizational sciences. Behavioral Research in Accounting, our section’s journal...
