Perceptions of journal quality and research paradigm: results of a web-based survey of British accounting academics

Alan D. Lowe, Joanne Locke

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper reports the results of a web-based perception study of the ranking of peer reviewed accounting journals by UK academics. The design of the survey instrument allows an interactive selection of journals to be scored. The webbased format is unique in that it also includes a step in which respondents classify the journals according to methodological perspective (paradigm). This is depicted graphically in the paper in a bubble diagram that shows the "positioning" of journals according to perceptions of both paradigm and quality.
