President's Letter

Dear Fellow Section Members,

It was great to see all of you who were able to attend the International Accounting Section midyear meeting, January 27-29 and February 4-5. Despite the challenging environment, our Midyear Meeting Co-Chairs, Hong Kim Duong (Old Dominion University) and Chuong Do (University of Nevada, Reno) with the support of their track chairs: Huichi Huang (North Dakota State University), Michael Neel (University of North Texas), Rachna Prakash (University of Mississippi), and Aaron Yoon (Northwestern University), put together an excellent program. Program highlights included our plenary panel discussing international auditing standard setting, the JIAR plenary session, four additional panel sessions, two speakers, and over 50 papers presented during the concurrent sessions. The Ph.D./New Scholars Consortium, organized and run by Linda Myers (University of Tennessee), was also a great success with 40 Ph.D. student and junior faculty participants and 15 faculty leaders.Continue Reading


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.
