The data bases most commonly possessed by accounting doctoral programs are identified, personal support is discussed, the amount of direct annual costs needed to maintain these data bases.are provided. Our findings have implications for accounting educators in their roles as researchers, as teachers of doctoral students, as advisors to under-graduate and masters students, and as teachers of non-doctoral students.
