Professor Paul Griffin Named Co-Editor of American Accounting Association’s Accounting Horizons

(Davis, CA) — The American Accounting Association has named Professor Paul Griffin as co‐editor of Accounting Horizons, one of the association’s two flagship academic journals.

Griffin will share the editorship with Professor Arnold Wright of Northeastern University. They will assume the posts in late spring 2012, when current co-editors Dana Hermanson and Terry Shevlin complete their three-year term.

Accounting Horizons’ mission is to publish high-quality scholarly articles that bridge a healthy dialog among academics, professionals and regulators. Founded in 1916, the American Accounting Association promotes worldwide excellence in accounting education, research and practice.

“One of my major tasks will be to uphold the rich legacy built by past editors and authors, and to build a great team of associate editors and reviewers,” Griffin said.

Past editors include John C. (Sandy) Burton, former chief accountant of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and Professor Robert K. Mautz of the University of Illinois.

Griffin’s research spans a wide range of topics in financial accounting, capital markets and auditing research. His research extends from his early publications on the time-series properties of accounting earnings to later articles on a diverse set of issues including investors’ responses to financial disclosures, auditor changes and SEC filings.

Griffin’s scholarly work has been published in top finance and accounting journals, and he has also served the Financial Accounting Standards Board as a research specialist. In that position, he authored three FASB monographs and helped the board as monograph series editor. After earning his master’s degree in economics from Victoria University of Wellington in Australia, and a Ph.D. in accounting from The Ohio State University, Griffin began his academic career at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. In 1981, he joined UC Davis to help build its Graduate School of Management.

“I am thrilled with this appointment,” said UC Davis Graduate School of Management Dean Steven Currall. “This is another clear sign of the academic excellence and recognition of the Graduate School of Management as one of the top business schools in the country.”
