Accounting research journal earns top award

Accounting Horizons is a quarterly research journal edited by Jim Largay, professor of accounting at Lehigh.

Based in the UK, Emerald publishes 150 journals. In addition, each year it evaluates articles in the top 400 management periodicals in the world in six research and readability areas. Specialist reviewers examine more than 18,000 articles each year and EMR recognizes the highest-ranked journal in each functional management category with Golden Page Awards in one or more of the six research and readability areas.

"This type of independent, unsolicited recognition of our work at Accounting Horizons, and the untold hours I spend as editor with green pen in hand, comprehensively editing all published articles, is highly gratifying," Largay says.

Other journals honored with 2003 Golden Page Awards include Financial Management, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Strategic Marketing, and Management Science. Largay attended the April 24 awards ceremony in London to receive the award on behalf of Accounting Horizons and the American Accounting Association.
