Goodman accounting professor talks usefulness of XBRL filings

Many large companies and their investors doubt the usefulness of eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) filings.

If this is the case, what are the benefits and why it is it being used?

On Friday, Nov. 1, Goodman School of Business’ Samir Trabelsi will address these questions through his research article “Market Reaction to XBRL Filings” as part of the School’s Luncheon Speaker Series.

Trabelsi, an accounting professor, has taught courses in corporate governance, external reporting and research methodology. He was the recipient of Brock University Award for Excellence in Teaching (2017) and the Departmental Researcher of the Year Award (2019). As the founding director of the CPA Ontario Research Excellence Centre, Trabelsi has organized many international conferences and events that have brought together academics and practitioners from around the world. Prior to his career in academia, Trabelsi practiced public accounting in Tunisia.

The Goodman Speaker Series provides an informal opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with international business colleagues.

His talk will run from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Goodman School of Business Room 310. Goodman faculty, staff and students are invited to attend. Brock community members interested in attending are encouraged to email Jennifer Brisson at to reserve a seat.
