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

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.

Letter from the President

Hello all,

I hope the spring term is going well for all of you. I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about our Midyear Meeting in Newport Beach, CA, JISC 2018 in Durham, NC, and to give a preview of the events coming up for our section.

We enjoyed a great Midyear Meeting in Newport Beach, CA! My sincerest gratitude to all our volunteers who helped make our meeting a great success; Dan O’Leary, meeting coordinator; Andrea Kelton, research paper chair; Hussein Issa, SET coordinator; Diane Janvrin, education paper chair and Chris Wolfe, NSC coordinator. Also, the AAA staff and the Duke hotel staff were top notch. A highlight of the conference is always the awards - congratulations to all of our award winners - our website will soon be updated to reflect your achievements! Your innovative and interesting work is inspiring to all the members of the AIS section. Thanks to the IMA for their generous support of the case award. Also a special thanks to KPMG, they have generously supported our conference for many years now and I greatly appreciate their continued interest and support.

In March, JISC 2018 was a huge success. Thanks to our sponsor, the AICPA, the event was held in Durham, NC at their offices. I was extremely impressed with all the hard work of Pamela Schmidt, conference chair and co-editor; Kimberly Church, assistant chair and Graham Gal, coeditor. I cannot say enough about all the attention to detail from the website to the quality of speakers and to the papers presented. They truly put together an excellent program with participants from both practice and academia. The feedback was very positive and I encourage each of you to read the conference report contained in this newsletter. I look forward to the special conference edition of JIS. The AIS Section has another important event coming up soon - the AIS Bootcamp at the offices of PwC in Minneapolis, MN on May 22. Many thanks to PwC for sponsoring the event and to the education committee for organizing the bootcamp. Thanks to Diane Janvrin, Joy Gray, Kimberly Church and Lorraine Lee. I am happy to announce that there is great interest in the bootcamp - registration is full - however if you wish to be placed on the waitlist please see the conference link in this newsletter.
