Description of impact

James is joint founding Editor of AAAJ, now in its 33rd year, ranked in the top 5 globally by citations and Google Scholar in the accounting and taxation journals. An important aspect of his editorship with Professor Lee Parker is the journal’s focus on interdisciplinary accounting research innovation. It is pertinent that a special issue of AAAJ celebrating its first 25 years of existence (1988-2012), guest edited by Garry D. Carnegie, entitled “AAAJ and research innovation” (Vol. 25 No. 2, 2012), because it highlights the work that has been undertaken over the last quarter of a century by top-notch, contributing authors to AAAJ.  This is a theme that has consistently run through the annual editorials and commentaries since the first in 1992 and advanced through a consistently fascinating series of AAAJ special issues on particular topics in the accounting research field. In summary, AAAJ consistently ranks within the top 5 accounting journals, based on a number of different impact factors and citations. Now ranked A* by the ABDC 2019 journal rankings. See attached list of special issues and commentaries.
