Final Call: Could you be a Joint-editor of BAR?

[Originally published in the BAFA News section on 12 March 2020. Please note that if you have already submitted an expression of interest and have received a confirmation e-mail, you do not need to respond again.]

We seek expressions of interest in becoming a Joint-editor of British Accounting Review (BAR), the official research journal of BAFA. BAR is a well-established, international, peer-review journal that focuses on original research in accounting and finance (see It is ranked 3 in the Chartered Association of Business Schools Academic Journal Guide (2018); and A* in the Australian Business Deans Council Journal Quality List (2019). BAR has a high ISI Journal Citation Reports© (2018) impact factor of 2.984, and is ranked eleventh of 103 journals in the “Business, Finance” category.

In contrast to previous searches, we are not at this stage asking for pairs of academics to apply with a full vision statement. Rather, we would simply like to receive an email from you if you are an accounting or finance academic with an interest in serving our discipline at journal editor level. Naturally, a certain academic seniority is needed; and prior experience of editorial board membership and/or associate editorship (or similar) would be useful. But we welcome interest from academics from any branch of our diverse community who have an enthusiasm and realistic ambition to protect and continue the outstanding achievements of our current Joint-editors, Professors Nathan Joseph and Alan Lowe. Please read the  outline of the principal roles/responsibilities of editorship at BAR.

If you are interested, please email Ian Crawford at, providing a short CV.
