October 27, 2016

NEW YORK (Oct. 27, 2016) - The American Institute of CPAs has entered into an agreement with John Wiley & Sons, Inc., a leading provider of professional and academic content, to publish its full catalog of 200 finance and accounting publications, giving this authoritative material increased visibility and accessibility in the global marketplace.

The first 65 publications are scheduled for release in November and will be made available globally in print and eBook formats. Wiley will pursue new licensing opportunities and include AICPA-branded content on its digital subscription platform, Wiley Online Library. Wiley also will make the content available to students via its Education arm, which serves the academic and higher education markets. 

“Wiley’s distribution channels are a great fit for our highly regarded educational and professional content,” said Clar Rosso, the AICPA’s vice president of member learning and competency. “We believe their dedicated academic sales force and international reach will bolster awareness of AICPA resources outside of our traditional markets.”

Titles covered by the agreement include major AICPA references such as U.S. GAAP Financial Statements - Best Practices in Presentation and Disclosure, as well as notable books such as Understanding Business Valuation by Gary Trugman and Essentials of Forensic Accounting by Michael A. Crain, William S. Hopwood, Carl Pacini, and George R. Young.

The list of publications covers core finance and accounting topic areas such as tax, auditing, business valuation, fraud, and forensics, which complement Wiley’s strength in these fields.

“This publishing relationship is an exciting first step in a new partnership to further expand AICPA’s footprint to accounting and finance professionals and students globally,” said Joan O’Neil, executive vice president of knowledge and learning at Wiley. “We look forward to cultivating our relationship with the AICPA, working to discover new ways we can better educate and serve the accounting and finance community together.”
