Abstract

It has often been said that a great part of the strength of Aslib lies in the fact that it brings together those whose experience has been gained in many widely differing fields but who have a common interest in the means by which information may be collected and disseminated to the greatest advantage. Lists of its members have, therefore, a more than ordinary value since they present, in miniature, a cross‐section of institutions and individuals who share this special interest.

Abstract

This paper ranks university faculties, accounting doctoral programs, individual behavioral accounting researchers, and the most influential articles based on Google Scholar citations to publications in Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research (AABR). All articles published in AABR in its first 15 volumes are included and four citation metrics are used. The paper identifies the articles, authors, faculties, and doctoral programs that made the greatest contribution to the development of AABR. Such an analysis provides a useful basis for understanding the direction the journal has taken and how it has contributed to the literature (Meyer & Rigsby, 2001). The h-index and m-index for AABR indicates it compares favorably among its peers. Potential doctoral students with an interest in behavioral accounting research, “new” accounting faculty with an interest in behavioral accounting research, current behavioral accounting research faculty, department chairs, deans, and other administrators will find these results informative.

Abstract

It was originally intended that this paper should present a description of the traditional structure of an information service and an indication of how that structure changes as a result of introducing external information services. Although during the writing of the paper this intention has been kept constantly in mind, the author has found it impossible not to stray into describing changes of function and the resulting changes in attitudes on the part of information worker and user. This is for two reasons. Firstly, the resultant changes in function and changes in attitude are still very much in a formative stage, and until they are reasonably crystallized it would be foolish to venture too far in discussing possible changes in structure. Secondly, formal organizational structures are becoming outmoded in modern management practice; informality and the highest degree of flexibility are the latter's key notes.

Abstract

Questions put to Mr Aitchison during the evening dealt mainly with the method of his SDI investigation. In reply to Mr C. S. Sabel (Central Electricity Generating Board) Mr Aitchison said that progressive modification of user profiles would be attempted. In answer to a point made by Mr D. V. Arnold (ICI Heavy Organic Chemicals Division) he affirmed his belief that co‐operation with librarians was essential. Mr P.E.Colinese (Central Electricity Generating Board) asked about the method of assessment of relevance by users. Mr Aitchison indicated that this would become more stringent as the study progressed. In reply to Mr D.H. Barlow (McGraw Hill) he said that three indexers would be required for indexing a maximum of 15,000 documents a year. To questions on the amount of computer time required and the percentage of key word match which would enable him to regard a document as relevant to a user, he replied that they hoped to have answers within the next four months. Mr C. S. Sabel (Central Electricity Generating Board) wondered what was the best way for work on mechanization to be co‐ordinated. Mr Aitchison thought that since so few people were working in this field there was little risk of fruitless duplication of effort.

Abstract

AT the very outset of this paper it is necessary to make clear that it is not an attempt to compile an exhaustive bibliography of literature relating to special librarianship. Neither space nor time permit this. In fact, the references given can only claim to be a sample of the wealth of material on the subject and this paper is submitted in the hope that it will stimulate others to more scholarly efforts. Reference numbers throughout this paper refer to items in the ‘Select list of references to the literature of special librarianship’, section 2 onwards.

Abstract

FROM 5th to 8th October, 1951, Aslib was fortunate in holding its Annual Conference again at Ashorne Hill, near Leamington Spa, and our thanks are due for the third time to Colonel and Mrs. J. H. Alexander and their staff for the excellence of the catering and domestic arrangements. The weather also co‐operated and sunshine displayed all the autumn beauties of the garden and countryside.

Abstract

THE interval between the Library Association Conference and the printing of THE LIBRARY WORLD is too brief for more than a series of impressions of it. Comment is probably preferable in our pages to mere record. The Association is publishing in the next few weeks all the papers that were read and, as we hope, the substance at least of the unwritten contributions. In this second particular reports in recent years have been lacking. A report that merely states that “Mr. Smith seconded the vote of thanks” is so much waste of paper and interests no one but Mr. Smith. If Mr. Smith, however, said anything we should know what it was he said. What we may say is that the Conference was worthy of the centenary we were celebrating. The attendance, over two thousand, was the largest on record, and there has not been so large a gathering of overseas librarians and educationists since the jubilee meeting of the Library Association at Edinburgh in 1927. So much was this so that the meeting took upon it a certain international aspect, as at least one of the non‐librarian speakers told its members, adding that it was apparently a library league of nations of the friendliest character. It followed that an unusual, but quite agreeable, part of each general session was devoted to speeches of congratulation and good‐will from the foreign delegates. All, with the possible exception of the United States, dwelt upon the debt of their countries in library matters to the English Public Libraries Acts and their consequences. Even Dr. Evans, in a very pleasant speech, showed that he had reached some tentative conclusions about English librarianship.

Abstract

This chapter presents a seven-part case developed for use in a graduate-level tax planning class. The case is organized in a taxpayer/business “life-cycle” approach. Over the semester the case follows a married couple as they consider a number of investments, start a business, and expand the business. As the case progresses, the couple faces increasingly complex tax and business issues. The couple eventually winds down their involvement in the business and begins to plan for their retirement years. This chapter also provides a review of behavioral tax research published in the top accounting journals over the period 2004–2013. The chapter concludes with a discussion of how the case could be adapted by behavioral tax researchers in their research programs and perhaps by accounting firms in their training programs.
