The American Institute of CPAs has signed an agreement with John Wiley & Sons to take over publishing of the AICPA’s entire catalog of finance and accounting publications.

Wiley will start publishing the first 65 of the AICPA’s approximately 200 publications next month in both print and e-book formats.

The deal is expected to expand the availability of the AICPA’s content around the world. The list of publications covers topics such as tax, auditing, business valuation, fraud and forensics. The agreement includes titles such as U.S. GAAP Financial Statements - Best Practices in Presentation and Disclosure, Understanding Business Valuation and Essentials of Forensic Accounting.

“Wiley’s distribution channels are a great fit for our highly regarded educational and professional content,” said AICPA vice president of member learning and competency Clar Rosso in a statement. “We believe their dedicated academic sales force and international reach will bolster awareness of AICPA resources outside of our traditional markets.”

Wiley also plans to pursue new licensing opportunities and include AICPA-branded content on its Wiley Online Library digital subscription service. The publisher also intends to make the content available to students through its education unit.

“This publishing relationship is an exciting first step in a new partnership to further expand AICPA’s footprint to accounting and finance professionals and students globally,” said Wiley executive vice president of knowledge and learning Joan O’Neil in a statement. “We look forward to cultivating our relationship with the AICPA, working to discover new ways we can better educate and serve the accounting and finance community together.”
