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.
