Abstract

This paper evaluates the research contributions of Accounting, Organizations and Society (AOS) during the years 1976-1984. We begin by investigating whether AOS has achieved its research objectives as defined by its "aims and scope". We then examine two major attributes of AOS articles, the foundation disciplines they draw upon and the research methods they employ. Next we use citation analysis to determine the impact AOS's research has had upon research published in the social sciences. Finally, we identify those AOS articles which have exerted the greatest impact on the social sciences.
