Preparing Accounting Students for Careers Using Big Data (Special Issue)

The Journal of Accounting Education invites submissions for a special issue devoted to preparing accounting students for a career using Big Data and performing business data analysis. Submissions for this special issue should be original work that deal in some manner with topics related to how best to prepare accounting students to understand a variety of big data sources and performing data analytics in support of business decision-making. Rather than single teaching cases, the goal of this issue is to help develop overall curriculum learning objectives, teaching methods effectiveness, learning assessment, course design, program design, etc. The editors for this special issue solicit high-quality manuscripts of various types and research paradigms (for example, field or experimental investigations, archival, analytical, or survey research). All relevant submissions will be considered, except for stand-alone cases without an empirical research component.

To enhance early access, manuscripts will be published in regular journal volumes as accepted and later be pulled into a virtual special issue on the Journal of Accounting Education website.

Submissions should be made electronically through https://www.evise.com/profile/api/navigate/ACCEDU starting 15 December 2017. When submitting select the issue type as 'Special issue' and then the article type as 'Special Issue on Accounting Student Career'. The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2018. Acceptances will be on a rolling basis with an anticipated virtual special issue completion for October 2019. Early submissions are welcome, and potential contributors are encouraged to contact the guest editors to discuss ideas and topics. Authors should submit the following items within the EVISE system: (1) statement that the submitted work is original, that it has not been published elsewhere, and that the paper is not currently under review by any other journal; (2) cover page, containing title of the manuscript and complete contact information for each author; and (3) manuscript copy itself, without any author identification.
