Abstract

We conduct an evaluation of 43 accounting journals using the author affiliation index (AAI). Our results suggest that the Australian Business Dean's Council (ABDC) ratings are consistent with the AAI-based rankings. Nonetheless, there are a few highly (lowly) regarded accounting journals in terms of AAI receiving a relatively lower (higher) rating in the ABDC journal ranking list. The co-authorship patterns suggest that top AAI and near-top AAI journals actually see more co-authorship from scholars in top programs and scholars in other programs (both ranked 21–100 and ‘others’).
