ACCOUNTING PROGRAMS RANKED BY ACCOUNTING-EDUCATION ARTICLES: CONTROLLING FOR JOURNAL QUALITY AND AUTHORS’ DOCTORAL TIME

Richard A. Bernardi, Kimberly Z. Collins

Abstract


This research ranks accounting programs based on their faculty members’ publications in accounting-education journals. The goal of this research is to level the playing field when ranking accounting-education programs by providing smaller programs a means to compete with larger programs. We accomplished this by using three methodologies: non-standardized article counts; article counts standardized by each journal’s computed quality rating; and, article counts standardized by each journal’s computed quality rating and the time since the author received their PHD/DBA. This information would be useful for new PHD/DBAs seeking an initial position and interested in accounting-education research or associate/full professors considering relocating who are interested in accounting-education research. Programs seeking or maintaining their AACSB accreditation can also use the data in this study as an outcomes assessment indicator.
