Accounting faculty Dana Hermanson, Rich Clune and Marcus Caylor have landed a spot on the Journal of Accounting and Public Policy’s list of top 25 most influential articles in the journal’s history.
The Journal of Accounting and Public Policy’s list comes in honor of the journal`s 40th anniversary and aims to recognize its most influential articles and contributors since its creation in 1982. The journal publishes research papers focused on accounting and public policy and is one of the most well-known peer review journals to date.
Marcus Caylor’s article on “Corporate Governance and Firm Valuation”, first published in 2006, was ranked No. 5. The article “Enterprise Risk Management: An Empirical Analysis of Factors Associated with the Extent of Implementation”, ranked at No. 22, was written in 2005 by the now retired Clune and Hermanson in conjunction with Mark Beasley of North Carolina State University. All three articles have received high praise from KSU and the accounting community.
Each Kennesaw State faculty member listed in the journal was associated with The Coles College of Business. They received praise from both the Dean of the Michael J. Coles College of Business and The School of AccountancyDirector. Clune, who is now retired, served as the full-time Professor and Director of the Internal Audit Center. Both Caylor and Hermanson are still gainfully employed professors with KSU.
Hermanson also holds many titles including the Dinos Eminent Scholar Chair of Private Enterprise, Director of Research and Corporate Governance Group.
“The recognition from the journal reflects the quality of the College’s faculty,” Business School Dean Robin Cheramie said in a previous KSU news story.
The news comes as KSU was ranked No. 100 worldwide in faculty research according to Research.com. Dana Hermanson was also ranked by Research.com for individual research output as No. 418 in the United States and No. 914 in the world for research specializing in economics and finance, according to KSU’s ranking page. KSU has been recognized and highly ranked amongst peers, scholarly journals and the state of Georgia and continues to rise in ranks as a public research university.
Kennesaw State University has continued to grow its research efforts and ingenuity with over 170 external research awards. Undergraduate research initiatives involving student-faculty research have also expanded, allowing students to work with award-winning faculty such as Hermanson and Caylor themselves.
Furthermore, Kennesaw State has launched its very own scholarly research journal, The Kennesaw Journal of Undergraduate Research. KJUR is Kennesaw State University`s individual, scholarly peer-reviewed, undergraduate research journal, solidifying its place as a top research university in Georgia.
