Professors Brendan O’Dwyer and David Veenman from the Amsterdam Business School have recently been appointed as Editors at top (A*) journals in their field. O’Dwyer was appointed as Editor at Accounting Organizations & Society, while Veenman was appointed as Editor at The Accounting Review. Accounting, Organizations & Society is the leading international interdisciplinary journal concerned with the relationships among accounting and human behaviour, organisational and institutional structures and processes, and the wider socio-political environment of the enterprise. The Accounting Review is the flagship journal of the American Accounting Association and is widely considered to be one of the premier journals for publishing articles reporting the results of accounting research and explaining and illustrating related research methodology.
Brendan O’Dwyer joined UvA in 2004. His research examines governance and accountability within the accounting profession, professional services firms, non-profit organisations, and the corporate and health-care sectors. Most recently, he has published research examining: the impact of shifts in the regulatory governance of the accounting profession; the processes through which new and influential external corporate reporting and assurance models emerge; the governance implications of professional services firms’ efforts to expand their assurance services; the nature and impact of shifts in the internal and external governance of NGOs in The Netherlands; and the processes through which activist-instigated changes in the governance of socially responsible investment have emerged internationally. His work has been published in Accounting, Organizations & Society, Accounting and Business Research, Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal, Auditing: A Journal of Practice and Theory, Contemporary Accounting Research, and the European Accounting Review. Brendan is a member of the advisory board of SOM, the research school of the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Groningen and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales’ (ICAEW) Strategic Sustainability Committee.
David Veenman joined UvA in 2016 after having obtained his PhD at UvA in 2010. He conducts research on the ways in which financial reporting and other types of information disclosures affect companies’ stock market valuations, and the market frictions that prevent company-specific data to be appropriately reflected in share prices. His research examines stock-market phenomena resulting from such frictions, as well as the ways in which regulatory changes (such as mandatory reporting on the quality of internal control, or the expedited filing of annual reports) may aid in realising more efficient pricing. His recent work has focused on the question of why companies choose to report alternative measures of profitability in their press releases and how new sources of financial investment research, through “crowdsourced” platforms, disrupts the traditional finance industry. His work has been published in a number of leading scientific journals, including The Accounting Review, the Journal of Accounting and Economics, and the Journal of Accounting Research. In 2012, David received a Veni grant from the Dutch NOW. He previously served as an Associate Editor at the European Accounting Review, and serves on the Standing Scientific Committee and the FARS Publications Committee of the European and American Accounting Associations, respectively.
