About James R. Frederickson

I joined the Melbourne Business School faculty in 2006. I was previously on the faculties at Indiana University and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).
My primary research interest is the effect of financial accounting disclosures on investor judgments and decisions, and my secondary interest is integrating economic and psychological perspectives for how accounting information affects individuals’ judgments and decisions.
I have published in The Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting Research, Accounting, Organizations and Society, Journal of Accounting and Public Policy, and have presented my research at numerous universities and conferences in North America, Asia and Australia. I am currently on the Editorial Boards of The Accounting Review and Behavioral Research in Accounting.
