1 First volume was published in We publish twice a year. Older volumes are available online at Ole Miss’ library (except for the most recent three years)

2  Is your topic NEW? Is it INTERESTING?  If not NEW, it better be INTERESTING.  If not INTERESTING, it doesn’t matter if it’s NEW.  I often hear from reviewers: there’s nothing new here. It’s a rehash of ‘X’s’ work (sometimes X IS the author)  Immediately tell us what you are doing and why it should be interesting. How it differs from what has been done before.

3 Overview of acceptable submissions:  History of profession  Biography  History of accounting change  Entity case studies: industries, companies, governmental or NFP entities  Development of accounting theory  Critical examinations of new or old research  Does not have to be old to be a part of our history

4  Interesting accountings from various periods and places  The ancient world  Medieval period  Changes in accounting education  Case studies of personal accounts  Studies of taxation, accounting technologies etc.  Changes in corporate disclosure  All of the above include research from all countries.

5 Salmagundi This new section exists for the following possibilities:  A place for scholars to suggest a reprint something of interest they have seen elsewhere (the editor will get permission).  An opportunity to expand discussion. A place to respond to  Articles printed in the AHJ  Articles printed elsewhere  Submissions not rising to the level of complete articles.  Discussion of theory  Tributes to scholars of the past

6  Advice to authors  Follow formatting guidelines  Provide abstract  Provide two papers, one without your name. OR one title page file and one with only the paper  Keep to page limit (imagine we all have ADD or bore easily)  Abstract should not = your first paragraph  State your purpose clearly  Tie your research to that of others – how are you contributing?

7  Advice to authors  All citations should be in the bibliography and vice versa.  If you are doing an interdisciplinary piece, cite from that other literature. E.g. slavery, ancient accounting  Do not submit to more than one journal at a time. This is a small community.  Do not take a rejection and then send it to another journal without amendment. This is a small community.

8  Advice to authors  Proofread. Best: have another person read it. Next best: wait 3 days and reread it yourself.  If English is not your first language: Find someone FLUENT to proofread.  Perfection? It does not need to be perfect – leave something for the reviewers to do. They can help!! BUT – don’t be so careless that it insults the editor or the reviewers.

9  Advice to authors  If you receive a revise and resubmit – congrats! Your chances have jumped.  Respond to each comment of the reviewers/editor one by one. If you cannot do something recommended say so and say why  If a lot of time has passed since the first acknowledgement? “A lot” equals about 3 months. me.

10 Thanks!!
