I’m excited to continue serving the academic community and look forward to several more productive and successful years promoting creative academic research in areas of accounting, finance, and economics.”

Dania has been a member of the Editorial Board of Accounting and Finance Research since 2013 and has served as associate editor since that time. Dania was invited to serve a two-year term as editor-in-chief in recognition of his contributions to the academic community and to the journal. The editorial board of the journal includes accounting, finance and economics academicians from universities all over the world.
