The State of Accounting Education Scholarship in New Zealand
Adler, Ralph
Accounting Education, v21 n6 p545-563 2012
This paper examines publishing trends of New Zealand accounting education scholars over the 20-year period 1991-2010. Longitudinal analyses of the annual number of publications, research theme studied, researcher productivity, and institutional productivity, along with cross-sectional analyses of authors' Hirsch "h"-index scores, the publication timing of authors' accounting education research relative to their total research, and authors' accounting discipline sub-areas of expertise, were undertaken. The paper identifies the late 1990s as New Zealand's most prolific period for accounting education research. Reasons behind this occurrence were explored, with interview findings suggesting the importance of such enabling/constraining factors as research funding opportunities, the presence of institutional champions, and the introduction of Performance-Based Research Funding (PBRF).
