According to Retraction Watch, former Bentley accounting professor James Hunton is now a solid 8 in the top ten retracted researchers. Jim broke into the top ten a while ago entering the list tied for tenth but recent retractions has solidified his standing in the Top Ten by moving him to number 8. While I almost always like to see accounting profs succeed, this is one top ten list I wish we did not have a representative on.
BUT, are accounting journal editors any more equipped and alert today then they were a decade ago to prevent or at least detect such fraud on the academy? Sadly, I am not so sure.
