American Accounting Assn. Selects Allen Press as Online Publishing Provider

LAWRENCE, KS—January 24, 2012—Allen Press, a printer and publishing services provider, has recently entered into an agreement with the American Accounting Assn. (AAA) to provide online publishing on the Pinnacle platform for 15 of the association’s journals in addition to services currently being provided.

Since 1916, AAA has attracted the largest community of accountants in academia. The association is committed to collaboration and innovation through teaching and research. Consisting of seven regions and specialty sections publishing a variety of journals and educational material, AAA is the principal professional association of accounting academics in the United States.

“The American Accounting Assn. has just completed moving hosting of our online journals to the Allen Press Pinnacle platform. Allen’s staff was on top of every step of the transition, helping us test and launch the main site ahead of a critical deadline,” said Diane Hazard, publications manager for the AAA. “We are thrilled with the results so far and will be adding new features, including preprints and mobile access, within the next couple of weeks.”

“We are delighted to be providing the AAA with online publishing for their journals. Our online system should help increase the visibility of their publications,” said Gerald Lillian, CEO of Allen Press. “Because we’ve integrated all aspects of content management and content delivery for the journals here at Allen Press, the publishing process becomes much more efficient. We think AAA will benefit greatly from the savings in expense and time in their editorial offices.”
