The purpose of this study is to chronicle the increased level of accounting research published in 14 accounting-education journals authored by accounting doctoral classes from 1966 through 2012. The data indicate that the increase in the number of graduates from our accounting doctoral programs positively associated with the growth in the number of accounting-education journals, the number of coauthor-adjusted accounting publications, the average number of coauthor-adjusted articles for each year group, and the level of coauthoring. We found that the increase in the number of AACSB accredited institutions positively associated with the increase in the number of authors who had an accounting education publication within 10 years after graduating. However, the increase in the number of AACSB accredited institutions negatively associated with the number of coauthor-adjusted articles over time and the average number of coauthor-adjusted articles for each year group. From a research perspective, these results challenge Fogarty and Markarian’s finding about the accounting-education profession being in a state of decline.
