Academy of Accounting Historians

 

Life Membership Award

The awarding of a Life Membership in the Academy of Accounting Historians will be based on the following criteria [1]. These criteria are not an exhaustive list but are intended to provide guidance to the Selection Committee in its deliberations and decisions:

  • international profile and recognition – the individual should have a global profile and not one simply within his/her country;
  • the quality, importance and originality of the individual’s research program;
  • the scholar’s scope of work, publication record in various academic journals and edited volumes;
  • his/her active participation in the academy (in the generic sense and not only the Academy of Accounting Historians), including contributions to the field as journal editor, editorial board member, conferences, etc.;
  • the individual’s work and efforts to popularize history and accounting history, including editing and publication of works, and efforts to bring accounting history's past into the present through the publication of old documents or records or the re-publication of forgotten texts; and
  • the individual’s participation in the training of doctoral students, support and mentorship of junior colleagues including those whose mother tongue is not English.

[1] Adopted unanimously at the Academy of Accounting Historians Annual General Meeting, August 2007.
