Introduction to the Repository of International Accounting Syllabi (Dated July 2020)

The Repository of Accounting Syllabi emerged during the 2019-2020 academic year and was created to foster collaboration and sharing of teaching ideas and materials across the members of the International Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association. Co-chairs of the IAS Curriculum Committee 2019-2020, Asheq Rahman (Auckland University and Technology) and Laura Swenson (University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee), obtained the syllabi using two primary means of collection. The first was through a call for syllabi that was posted in the IAS section news sent to IAS section members via e-mail. The second (which is still ongoing) was via direct solicitation of department chairs. In order to complete the latter, a list of AACSB accredited accounting programs in the United States was gathered as well as available department chair e-mails. The authors also reached out to personal contacts. We thank those that have contributed and ask that any others interested in contributing to the repository of syllabi contact Asheq Rahman ( or Laura Swenson (



President's Letter
Lucy Chen,
IAS Section President

Dear fellow International Accounting Section (IAS) members,

It is awesome to see many of you at 2024 IAS midyear meeting with International Association for Accounting Education & Research (IAAER). I hope that the midyear meeting provided a platform for you to share and disseminate international accounting research and educational knowledge and to build a strong sense of community to network and help each other. I feel the energy and excitement from you, so thank you to everyone who participated in the meeting by presenting your paper, discussing your colleagues’ work, moderating a session, participating the panel and plenary discussions, delivering the keynote speech, or simply just being there and showing your support.


Journal of International Accounting

The Journal of International Accounting Research publishes articles that increase our understanding of the development and use of international accounting and reporting practices or attempt to improve extant practices. International accounting is broadly interpreted to include the reporting of international economic transactions; the study of differences among practices across countries; the study of interesting institutional and cultural factors that shape practices in a single country but have international implications; and the effect of international accounting practices on users. The Journal has a diverse readership and is interested in articles in auditing, financial accounting, managerial accounting, systems, tax, and other specialties within the field of accounting.
