The Accounting Review appoints Li as editor
University of Kansas professor Chan Li has been named editor at The Accounting Review, the premier journal for accounting research.
Currently, Li is the Stephen A. Batman Professor at the KU School of Business, joining the faculty last year. Her appointment marks the third among recent Accounting Review editorial rotations for KU business school accounting faculty.
“I still remember 10 years ago, people at various meetings told me that their papers were handled by then-Accounting Review editor, my Ph.D. adviser, Mike Ettredge. They told me what a great editor he was, even when their papers were rejected. This reminds me how high the bar is to become a great editor, and I hope to someday meet that bar.”
Li also holds the post of editor at Auditing: A Journal of Practice and Theory, with her main research interest being in archival auditing, particularly in the economic consequences of auditing, the effects of regulation on the audit environment, auditor judgment and audit quality.
Li has published more than 20 articles in leading academic journals, including The Accounting Review; Journal of Accounting Research; Journal of Accounting and Economics; Contemporary Accounting Research; Accounting, Organizations and Society; Review of Accounting Studies; Auditing: A Journal of Practice and Theory.
Her work has also been cited by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, The New York Times, Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal.
