Journal of Accountancy launches new Web site

The Journal of Accountancy, the award-winning monthly magazine of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, introduced a redesigned Web site at the Institute's annual fall governing Council meeting.

The new Web site is packed with new features, online-only articles, and a searchable archive of the magazine's authoritative and in-depth coverage of the accounting profession.

"The new journalofaccountancy.com is the culmination of a tremendous team effort and lots of reader feedback," said Joanne Fiore, publisher of Magazines & Newsletters at the AICPA. "It is much more than the print magazine and a great resource for today's CPA. Our readers will get more information, more often, with enhanced features, exclusive content and daily news updates, plus more than 10 years of searchable Journal of Accountancy archives."

Fiore demonstrated the Journal of Accountancy's enhanced Web site today to the approximately 450 people attending the AICPA's governing Council meeting.

The Web upgrade was designed in-house by Michael Schad Johnstone, art director of the Journal of Accountancy, and Christofer Nystrom, senior designer for CPA2Biz, the AICPA's marketing and technology affiliate. While developing the Web site, the designers took into account reader feedback and suggestions from the JofA's editorial advisers.

In addition to site-specific content and an in-depth archive, additional enhancements to the new journalofaccountancy.com include:

  • Full-text search and advanced search capabilities that pull results from the journalofaccountancy.com, plus the Institute's Web site and the AICPA Store
  • Daily articles and short news stories prepared by the magazine's staff
  • Updates from the CPA Letter Daily
  • Interviews
  • Regulatory announcements
  • Videos and audio
  • A "Browse Topics" feature listing dozens of subjects, ranging from "Audit and Attest" to "XBRL"
  • Weekly e-mail updates

The American Society of Business Publication Editors honored the Journal of Accountancy in 2008 with national and regional Awards of Excellence for design and editorial achievement, respectively. The Society of National Association Publications recognized the JofA with an Excel Award, and the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants presented the JofA with an Excellence in Financial Journalism Award.

The Journal of Accountancy has been published continuously since 1905.
