Dear MAS members,

As the incoming Senior Editor of the Journal of Management Accounting Research (JMAR) for the 2019-2021 term, I am excited to announce the team of Editors that will serve during my term. They are a group of 13 strong researchers that are ready to work with you, current and future authors and referees, on publishing high quality and relevant management accounting research.

Furthermore, the incoming Editorial Board which are relied upon to do the bulk of the reviewing will, for the first time in JMAR’s history, consists of a majority of non-US based researchers. I will announce the incoming Editorial Board members at the Management Accounting Section’s midyear meeting in January.
