I confess to having a love- hate relationship with the BYU accounting rankings.
However, in reviewing their rankings recently I still see James Hunton’s retracted TAR article has just disappeared without any notation. Further there is no notation that directs readers to the damming report of the Bentley U ethics investigation that suggests numerous problems with his research!
If the BYU boys want to have full disclosure on their rankings you do not have papers used in one ranking and then disappear. Perhaps they need to become familiar with the term maintaining the integrity of the scientific record!
