Determinants of Coauthorship for the Most Productive Authors of Accounting Literature
Rutledge, Robert; Karim, Khondkar
Journal of Education for Business, v84 n3 p130-134 Jan-Feb 2009
All business faculty should be interested in the circumstances under which the most productive academic authors publish their work. This is because success in publishing connects closely with universities' decisions on tenure and promotion and with opportunities for merit-based pay increases and alternative employment. The purpose of the present study was to examine the characteristics of published articles by the most productive authors of accounting literature with particular attention to levels of collaboration. The results indicate that prolific authors of accounting literature become more productive and produce longer articles by working with others. However, such prolific authors appear to decrease the number of coauthors on their higher quality publications, possibly to increase the quality of their reputation. From these findings, the present authors derive implications for faculty and provide concluding comments. (Contains 2 tables.)
