We extend prior accounting education research by ranking accounting education publications based on citation counts. We collect publications in two accounting education specialty journals, Issues in Accounting Education and Journal of Accounting Education, and 11 other high-quality journals included in the Summers and Wood (2015a) database. We aggregate rankings by institution and by individuals for both traditional publications (including “instructional-resource” papers that are not case-based) and cased-based publications. We also provide citation-based benchmarking data for accounting education scholarship. We present our results in time windows of the most recent 6 years (i.e., 2008-2013, inclusive), 12 years (i.e., 2002-2013, inclusive), and since 1990 to show changes in citation-based rankings over time. These rankings allow institutions and individuals who specialize and excel in accounting education publications to track and to receive recognition for their performance.
