Ranking of Accounting Programs and Journals: A Google Scholar Citation Perspective

By J.Y. Chan, K.C. Chan, J.Y. Tong and F.F. Zhang

Abstract

We conduct rankings on accounting programs and journals based on a rich database of Google Scholar citations of all articles in a set of 28 quality accounting journals during 1991-2010. Our approach mitigates the concern in Chow et al (2007) that some premier journals publish low impact articles while some non-premier journals publish high impact articles. In addition, we document that premier (non-premier) journals exhibit a linear (convex) curve of cumulative normalized citations across zero citation to less than or equal to eight citations buckets. For accounting program ranking, we find the top-five programs are the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Chicago, Stanford University, the University of Michigan, and Harvard University. In general, the top programs are able to produce a large number of high impact articles
