Abstract

This paper ranks accounting's education authors who teach at institutions located in the United States and Canada. During the 46-year period from 1966 through 2011 that we examined, 13 journals published accounting education papers; the publication period for each journal varies. The data indicate that only 31.4% of accounting's 4855 doctoral faculty who teach at schools in North America have one or more publications in these 13 journals. For those doctorates still teaching, the research provides rankings of authors by doctoral year and for four periods: 2002-2011 (most recent 10. years), 1992-2001 (next 10-year period), 1966-1991 (last 26. years), and for the entire 46-year period. To acknowledge the contributions of retired and deceased authors, the research lists those authors who would have been included on the overall list had they still been actively teaching. While Urbancic (2009) and Brigham Young University (BYU) provide rankings of authors in accounting education, these rankings are limited in the scope of the journals included - Urbancic includes only six accounting education journals, while BYU includes only Issues in Accounting Education. We found that Urbancic's (BYU's) 10-year (20-year) data had a Spearman's rho of -0.84 (0.39) with our rankings. We believe that data presented herein provides a more comprehensive ranking of accounting's authors in the area of education. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
