Abstract

This study examines the accounting research among Canadian higher education institutions over the last two decades (1991-2010). Overall, thirty-eight Canadian universities contribute 4.1% of all publications in 28 leading accounting journals. The five most productive universities are the University of Alberta, the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, the University of Waterloo, and Simon Fraser University. Compared with their counterparts in Australia and the U.K., leading Canadian universities are not as productive concerning overall publication in accounting journals. However, when examining only the top six premium accounting journals, leading Canadian universities clearly outperform their counterparts in Australia and the U.K.
