Prof. Kogan is one of the founders of the Rutgers Accounting Web (RAW). The RAW is the oldest and the largest accounting Web site on the Internet. Since 1994, the RAW materials have been available on the Internet for use by accounting scholars, practitioners, educators and students. The development of the RAW was supported by a grant from the National Center For Automated Information Research (NCAIR). The RAW originally put on the Web such major accounting organizations as the Financial Accounting Standards Board, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, the American Accounting Association, the Institute of Management Accountants, the Institute of Internal Auditors, and the Association of Government Accountants.
