ProQuest Launches Accounting & Tax Product

Oct 13, 2006

ProQuest Information and Learning, a research solutions company that created the seminal ABI/INFORM and developed the SmartSearch technology, has announced the launch of a new accounting solution: ProQuest Accounting & Tax with Standards.

ProQuest Accounting & Tax with Standards combines standards from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), and peer-reviewed and trade accounting journals--and then applies new tools to improve the search and retrieval process. Features of the new product include: SmartView, a split screen that displays a table of contents and the full text of the standards simultaneously; mouse-over glossary "lookups"; a new user interface; and click-throughs to related standards, footnotes, and other links. ProQuest Accounting & Tax with Standards can integrate and cross-search with other ProQuest business and news products.

ProQuest Accounting & Tax with Standards provides in-depth coverage of US and international accounting policies and standards, including original pronouncements, statements, interpretations, Technical Bulletins, Board Opinions, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Interpretations, Current Text, and Emerging Issues Task Force Abstracts. Information on state and national tax legislation, corporate and individual taxation, compensation and pension plans, and corporate financial management, as well as profiles of accounting firms, CPAs, and management consulting firms are also available through ProQuest Accounting & Tax with Standards.
