Call for Nominations for the Next Senior Editor of Issues in Accounting Education

The Issues in Accounting Education Steering Committee is soliciting nominations for the next Senior Editor of Issues in Accounting Education. This will be a three-year term, beginning January 1, 2022.

Issues in Accounting Education is one of three association-wide journals published by the American Accounting Association (AAA). The mission of Issues in Accounting Education is to advance accounting education by publishing research, cases, instructional resources and commentaries that (1) assist accounting faculty in teaching, program development, professional development, and assessment, (2) encourage pedagogical experimentation and innovation based on learning science, and (3) enhance understanding of faculty-related issues and historical, social, or institutional conditions and trends that affect accounting education.

The term of the current Senior Editor of Issues in Accounting Education, Professor Elizabeth Dreike Almer, runs until December 31, 2021. The Issues in Accounting Education Steering Committee will consider nominees throughout the spring, with a goal to have the next Editor appointed and in transition by Fall 2021.
