My top ten

Topics

So what are MORE’s top ten?  My view is that to be considered a top ten accounting journal you should be a top 10 in at least one list!  What sources did I look at – see the previous post (i.e. SSCI 2018, 2017; SJC 2018; Google Scholar; FT 50 List) leaving aside the 2019 ABDC list.  Then I looked at the number of “top 10 hits” each journal has leaving me with three groups (O, RG, and G) that are listed in alphabetical order within group

Group O (outstanding – on all five top ten lists)

  • Accounting Organizations and Society
  • (The) Accounting Review
  • Journal of Accounting and Economics
  • Journal of Accounting Research

Group RG (really great – on four of five top ten lists)

  • Auditing: A Journal of Practice and Theory
  • Critical Perspectives in Accounting (Sorry folks – hard to be oppressed when you are tied for top 5 – you can work on it)

Group G (great – on three of five top ten lists)

  • Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal
  • British Accounting Review
  • Contemporary Accounting Research
  • European Accounting Review
  • Management Accounting Research
  • Review of Accounting Studies

So that makes twelve journals in the top ten.  So in the end, MORE and the ABDC have a significant overlap with 11 journals on both lists with one on MORE (see bold above) not on the ABDC thirteen and two on the ABDC thirteen not on MORE’s top ten list!
