Measurement of the research productivity of accounting faculty continues to evolve. Many studies on accounting research focused on measuring the perceived quality of accounting and related journals, or measured the research productivity of a limited number of journals or on the research productivity of a limited number faculty. Other studies measured the accounting research productivity of academic institutions and doctoral programs and the effects of research on perceptions about institutions and programs. Finally, some studies measured limited topics such as the productivity of female faculty and the effects on research on perceptions of institutions. In recent years, comprehensive databases on both accounting faculty and publications in accounting and related journals have provided an opportunity to study research productivity on a broader scale. These databases allowed the development of benchmarks for research productivity by years of experience and by journal quality. In developing these benchmarks, the publication records of individual faculty were unreported. We analyzed 40 journals for the 35-year period 1967-2001 and identified the most prolific authors and their productivity records. The top 10 researchers based on number of publications in the 40 journals were identified by year of doctoral graduation for the 30-year period 1968-1997. Analyzing all U.S. faculty holding the rank of Assistant Professor and above for the academic year 2001-2002 by the number of publications, we listed the top 75 academi
