Professor Annette Nellen (J.D., CPA) is Director of the MST Program at the San Jose State University Lucas Graduate School of Business, and Professor in the Department of Accounting and Finance at the San Jose State College of Business. She is a leading expert in the field of taxation. She also blogs at 21st Century Taxation.
Today, she sends notice of a new issue in The Contemporary Tax Journal.
I am very pleased to announce the release of the Spring 2012 issue of The Contemporary Tax Journal, a publication of the San Jose State MST program. I hope you enjoy this issue.
I am very proud of this activity. Fifteen MST students wrote articles for the journal and two classes were also involved in the Tax Policy Analyses content. Ten students attended the November 2011 Tax Institute as guests (compliments of the SJSU Tax Advisory Board and the attendees) and wrote summaries of the presentations that are in this journal. We also have two paid students working with Professor Bobbi Makani on the organization. (I continue to be the webmaster and final technical reviewer.)
This type of activity should be much more common at collegiate accounting, tax, and business programs. Such a student publication is a terrific way for students to seal the learning that has taken place in their courses. Through writing articles, they are put in position to figure out what they know and to make a choice as to whether they believe in it or not. Moreover, knowing that it will be read by outsiders disciplines all involved to produce a professional grade publication.
Professor Nellen, thanks for sending me this announcement.
Here is the table of contents for the Spring 2012 issue of The Contemporary Tax Journal.
