New Accountant magazine, a professional journal for college accounting students, produced by accounting professionals, has released its latest issue both in print and online.

The issue features the cover story "Fired for No Reason." The story, written by Dr. Randall Hanson, J.D. LL.M, Professor of Business Law at University of North Carolina - Wilmington, looks at how under the terms of "The Employment at Will Doctrine," employees not under a current contract with their employers can be fired for no reason.

Peer reviewed pieces include "Professional Networking and Accounting Students," "The Call of the Classroom," and "Are We Ready for COSO II? The New Principles - Based Internal Control Framework." Bill Powell, Lt. Colonel US Army, USAR (retired) also contributed "A Letter to Our Grandchildren” about the importance of reading the works of seven of the most influential economists and philosophers over the past three centuries. The enhanced online edition includes links to six helpful resources.

"We are constantly striving to provide content that is relevant, thought provoking, and useful," said Steven N. Polydoris, Editor & Publisher of New Accountant magazine. "I believe we accomplish all three of those objectives for our readers in this issue."

Currently the staff is in the process of gathering data for its first rankings issue of the top accounting programs that is slated to come out this fall.
