"International patterns and networks in collaborative research published in top accounting journals"
Academics publish scholarly work to benefit in terms of promotion, tenure, increased pay, professional growth and personal satisfaction. Furthermore, the quality of PhD programmes provided by several European Business Schools are assessed (among other aspects) in terms of the quality of research outputs of their PhD students in top scholarly journals. However, most European Business Schools use academic performance assessment rules based on journal ranking lists that specifically in accounting research are dominated by North-American Journals, North-American authors, which promote a specific accounting research stereotype.
Prof. Jonas Oliveira will present one of his recent research to demonstrate the current state of diversity in accounting research in terms of:
- The pattern of internationalization of the top accounting journals;
- The nature of the international co-authorships;
- Patterns of geographical diversity and types of internationalization networks in accounting journals.
This will allow assessing which journals attract specific kinds of research, establish some associations between the preferred type of research and the geographical region of the academic communities, and finally understand some strategies that can be followed to increase the quantity and quality of publications in top accounting journals.
