On another topic – accounting prof in top 10

Topics

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.
