Timothy J. Fogarty and Songtao (Song) Mo have been selected to receive the prestigious American Accounting Association's Steve Berlin/CITGO National Research Award for their proposed study, The Informativeness of Management Discussion and Analysis: A Qualitative Approach to Linguistic Choice. This study will investigate the narrative attributes of the contents of the section of annual reports usually labeled as Management Discussion and Analysis (MD&A).

The purpose of the Steve Berlin/CITGO Grant program is to foster academics' understanding of the contemporary external reporting and governance challenges faced by preparers. Proposals are evaluated by a four-person committee chaired by the American Accounting Association's Vice President-Research and representatives from the Financial Accounting and Reporting, Management Accounting, and Auditing Sections of the AAA.
