historical research. An historical manuscript on any aspect of the field of
accounting, broadly defined, is appropriate for submission.

and who received his/her masters/doctorate within seven years previous
to the date of submission, is eligible to be considered for this award.
Coauthored manuscripts will be considered (if at least one coauthor
received his/her masters/doctorate within the last seven years).
Manuscripts must conform to the style requirements of the Accounting
Historians Journal. Previously published manuscripts or manuscripts
under review are not eligible for consideration.

an outstanding manuscript. The award will be presented at the Academy's
2001 annual business meeting.
