A Senior Lecturer at the Department of Accounting of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Mr John Kwaku Amoh has been awarded as one of the best researchers across the globe at the 2020 Emerald Literati Awards.

Mr. Amoh’s research paper titled “Does corruption cause tax evasion? Evidence from an emerging economy” which he co-authored and published in the Journal of Money Laundering Control in May 2019, won the Outstanding Paper at the yearly awards.

The Emerald Literati Awards celebrate high quality scholarly research and reward the outstanding contributions of authors and reviewers, not only to their journals and books, but also to the body of knowledge itself.

Mr John Amoh expressed his gratitude to Emerald Publishing, the organisers of the awards for the recognition, and to his faculty and the University as a whole.

He explained that the purpose of the study was to examine the corruption-tax evasion nexus and to establish the strength of relationships among corrupting activities.

Speaking on the methodology, Mr Amoh said, the research applied structural equation modelling on selected data from the World Economic Forum Executive Opinion Survey on corruption activities and data on tax evasion triggering factors from the World Development Indicators and the Bank of Ghana to test two hypotheses.

Mr. John Amoh is a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Accounting and Finance with over five years’ experience in academia. Aside from his latest achievement, he has an increasing number of research publications in highly ranked peer-reviewed journals in the fields of accounting, finance and taxation.

Dr Raymond Dziwornu, Dean of the Faculty of Accounting and Finance in a glowing tribute to Mr Amoh said: “the Faculty celebrates this success and looks forward to more in the future as he continues to contribute immensely to the Faculty of Accounting and Finance. We say “ayekoo” to Mr John Amoh.”
