The term of the Editor of European Accounting Review, Beatriz Garcia Osma, runs through December 2023. It is the intent of the EAA Publications Committee to have the next Editor appointed by the end of 2022 to allow sufficient time for the transition. The new Editor will start accepting submissions to European Accounting Review as of 1 January 2024. The term of office as editor is four years. The new Editor is expected to guarantee the top quality of the journal as well as to play an active role in promoting its international visibility, including the use of social media.

As articulated in the journal’s aims and scope, European Accounting Review is an international scholarly journal of the European Accounting Association (EAA). Devoted to the advancement of accounting knowledge, EAR provides a forum for the publication of high-quality accounting research manuscripts. The journal is proud of its European origins and the diversity of the European accounting research community. Conscious of these origins, European Accounting Review emphasizes openness and flexibility, not only regarding the substantive issues of accounting research, but also with respect to paradigms, methodologies and styles of conducting that research. European Accounting Review is global in scope and welcomes submissions relating to any country or region as long as their relevance to an international audience is clearly communicated.

Specific qualifications for the editor of European Accounting Review include:

  • An internationally recognized scholar who has made significant contributions to accounting research.
  • Extensive experience as a reviewer and ideally some experience as an editorial board member or an (associate) editor.
  • A wide, international network that includes expertise in different paradigms and methodologies.
  • The ability to work in a constructive and timely way with authors, reviewers and the EAA’s Publications Committee.

In keeping with the EAA’s Governance Guidelines, this call for nominations is the first stage in the selection process. At this stage, both self-nominations and nominations of others by current EAA members are welcomed. Please send your nominations via email to Baha Diyarov (baha.diyarov@eiasm.be) by 31 August 2022. Nominations should include a current curriculum vitae and a brief memo (no more than 150 words) describing your or your nominee’s relevant qualifications to the extent that they are not apparent from the CV.

Following a review of nominations, eligible nominees will be asked to produce a statement outlining their intent for the development of the journal during their editorship and, whenever possible, an expression of support from their institutions. Finally, the Publications Committee will make a recommendation to the EAA Management Committee, which will appoint the new editor.
