Accounting Foundation
An Australian accounting organization housed within the University of Sydney. Established in 1982, the foundation oversees the publication of the journal *Abacus, manages the activities of the *Pacioli Society, and funds accounting-related research and scholarships. Its Web site states that its objectives include cooperation between "industry, commerce and the accounting profession to promote excellence in all fields of accounting and financial management in Australia." Its activities are wider than this would suggest, however, and it encourages international academic links. Web link: www.econ.usyd.edu.au/‘content.php?pageid-567
