2019 - 2020 Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Selection Committee

Nominations Deadline: January 31 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time

Charge

Carry out all activities to select recipients of the Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award.

Select the recipient(s) of the award from those articles, monographs, or books, published in English, identified by the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Screening Committee as potentially notable contributions in accounting literature.

Coordinate selection with the Deloitte Foundation Wildman Award Committee to assure diversity of awardees. Consider the diversity and breadth of AAA member research activities.

Specifically:

  • Actively seek and submit nominations to the Chair of the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Screening Committee
  • Review and evaluate nominations identified by the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Screening Committee
  • Current Committee members who are nominated for the award will be asked to either recuse themselves from the Committee or remove their nomination from consideration.
  • All nominees nominated for a given year’s award – who are not selected for that year’s award – will be automatically considered by the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Screening Committee for the award for the following two (2) years – as long as the nominated work meets the publishing requirements (see award criteria for details). Nominees who were not selected for the 2019 Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award will be considered by the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Screening Committee during the screening process for the 2020 Award and, if not chosen for the 2020 Award, will also be considered for the 2021 Award.  At the end of the selection process for the 2021 Award, if a qualified nominee has not been chosen as the award recipient or has not been re-nominated, he/she will no longer be considered for the award.
  • Select award recipient(s) based on award criteria
  • Chair presents the award(s) at the AAA Annual Meeting
  • If the Chair has any questions about the charge or responsibilities of this committee, s/he should contact the Executive Director, the President, or the Committee's Board of Directors Liaison.
