AIJ Receives Funding to help with Inaugural Conference in Weatherford
Dr. Patsy Parker, chair and assistant professor in the Department of Accounting, Computer Science and Entrepreneurship at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, recently received a $4,000 grant to help with an upcoming first-ever Administrative Issues Journal (AIJ) Conference to be held this October in Weatherford. The grant was from the City of Weatherford through the Hotel/Motel Tax Committee.
After this inaugural year, the conference will be an annual two-day conference held every fall at SWOSU. The Administrative Issues Journal was first established by co-principal investigator Tami Moser, editor in chief of the AIJ and assistant professor in the Department of Finance, Management and Marketing.
The Journal publishes articles submitted by professionals involved in education practice and research. The first call for papers resulted in 62 submissions. A team of 140 reviewers from across the United States chose 12 of the best papers for the first issue. In addition to the authors of the first issue, a call for presentations will bring more presenters to the fall conference.
Additional co-principal investigators on the grant are Trisha Wald, senior legal editor of AIJ and assistant professor in the Department of Accounting, Computer Science and Entrepreneurship; and Kelly Moor, copy/production editor of AIJ and assistant professor in the Department of Language and Literature; and Dr. Lisa Appeddu who recently joined the AIJ editorial team as research editor. Dr. Appeddu is an associate professor in the School of Allied Health.
