Objectives

The purpose of the Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association is to give greater attention to the area of auditing. To fulfill this purpose, the Section has established objectives in three areas:


Education—to discuss, test, and disseminate various ways of teaching auditing and audit-related topics.


Research—to encourage, facilitate, and publicize research interests and projects in the audit area.


Profession—to create an opportunity for closer association between the profession and those who instruct in the field.

Research

»AJPT Call for Papers: The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented social and economic impact on society. In the midst of this event, there is a growing sense that research is needed to assess the ramifications of the pandemic in different areas. As such, AJPT is calling for papers for a research Forum on COVID-19. The purpose of this Forum is to assemble articles that can directly inform our understanding of how the pandemic might affect audits and the profession. Recognizing that these issues are characterized by significant uncertainty and that any data and research pertaining to them can provide only early evidence, we invite short yet meaningful articles relating to the pandemic. All research methodologies are welcome. Regardless of methodology, we expect authors to consider the implications of their analyses beyond COVID-19. Some possible topics include (but are not restricted to) implications of the pandemic for audit risk assessment, auditing significant judgments and estimates, auditor reporting, internal auditing, remote auditing, work environment and work-life balance of audit professionals.

The intent behind the Call is to present a Forum comprising multiple papers in one issue of the journal. However, due to the timely nature of the topic, we will also consider including one or more accepted articles in earlier issues of the journal, rather than wait for the cohort of papers to become available. Such articles will be identified as belonging to the body of research relating to this Call. Read about the full call and how to submit by clicking here.
