THE ACADEMY OF ACCOUNTING HISTORIANS 1988 ACCOUNTING HISTORY MANUSCRIPT AWARD
The Academy of Accounting Historians has established an annual manuscript award to encourage young academic scholars to pursue historical research. Any historical manuscript on any aspect of the field of accounting, broadly defined, is appropriate for submission.
Eligibility and Guidelines for Submissions
Any accounting faculty member, who received his/her docto-rate within seven years, is eligible for this award. Manuscripts must conform to the style and length requirements of the Ac-counting Historians Journal. Manuscripts must be the work of one author and previously published manuscripts or manuscripts under review are not eligible for consideration.
Seven copies of each manuscript should be submitted by March 31, 1988 to: Dr. Barbara D. Merino, North Texas State University, P.O. Box 13677, Denton, Texas 76205. A cover letter, indicating the author's mailing address, date doctoral degree awarded, and a statement that the manuscript has not been published or is not being currently considered should be included in the submission packet.
Review Process and Award
The Academy's Manuscript Award Committee will review submitted manuscripts and select one recipient each year. The author will receive a $500 stipend and a certificate to recognize his/her outstanding achievement in historical research. The manuscript will be published in the Accounting Historians Jour-nal after any revisions deemed necessary by the manuscript editor of the Journal. The award will be given annually unless the manuscript award committee determines that no submission has been received that warrants recognition as an outstanding manuscript. The award will be presented at the business meeting of the Academy in Orlando in August 1988.
