Cambridge Judge academics scoop best paper award


Two academics from Cambridge Judge Business School have won an award for their co-authored paper.

Best Paper Award
An article about the recent financial crisis co-authored by Geoff Meeks, Professor of Financial Accounting, and Amir Amel-Zadeh, University Lecturer in Finance at Cambridge Judge Business School, won the Annual Manuscript Award for the best article published in 2013 in leading business journal Abacus.

The paper, entitled “Bank Failure, Mark-to-market and the Financial Crisis”, investigates the allegation that fair value accounting rules contributed significantly to the financial crisis. The authors will receive a prize, which is given for the best article published in the journal in each calendar year.

Abacus, a Journal of Accounting, Finance and Business Studies, is a peer-reviewed quarterly academic journal. It was established in 1965 and is published on behalf of the Accounting Foundation (University of Sydney). The Annual Manuscript Award “aims to reinforce the Journal’s continuing decision-useful focus explicit in its objectives, which have stemmed from the vision of the founder of Abacus, Ray Chambers.”
