Abstract

Research in accounting education has evolved to include, among other areas, research relevance, faculty research productivity, and the use of journal lists. These topics offer new areas for research including investigating the benefits and risks of relevant/irrelevant research, how effectively faculty research is evaluated, the potential consequences of using journal lists, and much more. Although these areas have significant and wide‐ranging effects on faculty, much more empirical data is needed to inform decision making. This paper highlights these issues and makes suggestions for additional research to help the academy make better decisions by using data‐driven research findings.

Keywords: research rankings, research relevance, education research, research productivity
