The Professional Accountants in Business (PAIB) Committee of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) invites its members and associates to submit outstanding published articles on topics of interest to accountants in business for its 2007 Articles of Merit Award for distinguished contribution to the development of the role and domain of the professional accountant in business.
The Articles of Merit Award is designed to facilitate communication and the sharing of knowledge on key financial and management accounting topics among IFAC's member bodies and their members in business. From among the articles submitted by member bodies, the PAIB Committee will select approximately 10 winning articles that will be published in an information paper, Articles of Merit: 2007. Articles selected for publication are those that have made or will make a distinct and valuable contribution to the advancement of PAIBs.
The annual Articles of Merit publications are widely distributed and read, providing a means for member bodies, authors, and the journals in which the articles are published to obtain recognition worldwide. A press release announcing the award winners is sent to all IFAC members, associates, and regional accountancy bodies, as well as the international media, who may download the publication free of charge from the IFAC website.
In addition, PAIBs worldwide are notified through IFAC's electronic news vehicles. In 2006, nearly 5,000 copies of past Articles of Merit publications were ordered or downloaded by accountants in business and other professionals worldwide from the IFAC website.
