New IAS Plus page on research and education

  • Book badge Image

Feb 12, 2013

IAS Plus now has a new research and education page that is tailored to help users easily locate academic accounting material and resources relevant for educational research that are available on IAS Plus and other useful sites.

The new page primarily offers easy access to material already on the IAS Plus site. However, we are committed to include research focused on contributions to the international accounting debate supporting the IFRS Foundation’s objective of developing a single set of high-quality global accounting standards and our endeavor to reinforce it.

Researchers have often pointed out how standard setting can benefit from academic research:

  • Academic research is generally grounded in theory that prevents it from being biased.
  • Researchers are guided by their research results and not by the support of a certain opinion; their main incentives are to build their own reputation and that of their institution.
  • Peer review ensures that researchers are judged by the quality and rigor of their research, not by the results of it.
  • Research is always innovative — researchers are constantly looking for relevant and interesting new research questions.

It is for the same reasons that we believe that not only standard setting will benefit from academic research but also IAS Plus readership; supplementing daily news with information about research will offer our users an additional base of neutral, independent material that will fit well with our aim of providing readers with up-to-date, unbiased information about international financial reporting.

At the same time we are well aware that IAS Plus is a page many students and researchers turn to as they value the wealth of our repository of comprehensive accounting information offering a library of news, developments, and publications going back to December 2000 and summaries of standards and corresponding e-learning.

The new education and research page aims at being a new central landing page for education-related information on IAS Plus. It offers access to our standard summaries, our e-learning, our webcasts and podcasts, the library of accounting research papers we are in the process of building up and will continue to add to, and a list of useful links including IASB educational material and free IFRS resources on the European Commission Web site.

Access to our new site is available through the link below and through the Resources menu item at the top of each IAS Plus page.
