Abstract

We assess the research productivity of the accounting and finance community in Australian and New Zealand higher education institutions (HEIs) during 1991–2010 using 48 high-quality accounting and finance journals. Our finding suggests that the HEIs’ research output steadily increases during the 20-year period. The University of New South Wales, the University of Sydney, Monash University, the University of Melbourne and the University of Queensland are the top-five HEIs. We also find that it is a challenge for an academic staff member to publish multiple articles. If an author is able to manage five total appearances over a 20-year period, he/she is in the top 15 per cent among all authors. Many highly productive authors are able to move to different jobs during the 20-year period.
