BNA announced that it will launch a new Accounting Policy & Practice Series for the accounting, legal and financial professions on Sept. 5.

In a statement, the company said that the series aims to provide subscribers with a "new dimension of objective and insightful guidance into decision-making in a post-Sarbanes-Oxley environment."

Besides breaking down accounting rules, offering insight into day-to-day reporting decisions and attempting to heighten the awareness of a variety of available financial options, the series will also offer methodologies for defending decisions to internal and external auditors.

The series will include three components, consisting primarily of an ongoing, continually expanding series of portfolios, but will also include a bi-weekly topical publication together with special reports on a variety of accounting subjects.

The portfolios -- the culmination of 5 years of effort -- will examine critical and timely accounting issues such as fundamental principles of revenue recognition, cash-flow statements, segment reporting, accounting for not-for-profit organizations, audit committee oversight effectiveness after the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, preparing for and defending accounting liability litigation, and accounting for long-term contracts.

A free trial of the series is available at, by entering priority code tmap168m.
