Success in publishing accounting research often requires success in multiple coauthoring relationships. Further, the number of coauthored papers in accounting (as well as most other fields of research) has steadily increased. Given the importance and popularity of coauthoring, our paper provides comprehensive advice to accounting researchers on how to manage a coauthoring relationship. A good coauthor establishes clear roles and expectations before a project begins and keeps commitments. Communication throughout the project is essential as coauthors confront difficulties and setbacks. We conclude by discussing several situations that coauthors may confront, and provide recommendations.
