We can do so much better: Reflections on reading “Signaling Effects of Scholarly Profiles—The Editorial Teams of North American Accounting Association Journals”

Robin W. Roberts

CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON ACCOUNTING, 2018, vol. 51, issue C, 70-77

Abstract: The purpose of this essay is to provide a commentary on the article “Signaling Effects of Scholarly Profiles—The Editorial Teams of North American Accounting Association Journals.” I take a broad approach to my essay, discussing potential root causes for the article’s results as opposed to providing a critique of their specific findings. I hope to add to this academic conversation by drawing on personal reflections and related prior literature to discuss why North American accounting research communities, especially in the U.S., should take substantive actions to promote and support a broader, more relevant, and inclusive research agenda.
