The Accounting cluster encompasses and promotes all aspects of accounting-related research that currently takes place across the Business School at The University of Adelaide.

Modern accounting research focuses on collecting and analysing information to drive performance, which requires scrutiny of governance mechanisms and accountability structures within and outside organisations. 

Cluster members have published recently in leading accounting journals such as: Accounting Horizons; Auditing: A Journal of Practice and Theory; Journal of Accounting and Public Policy; Journal of Business Ethics; Journal of Business Finance and Accounting; Journal of International Accounting Research; and Journal of Management Accounting Research.

The Accounting cluster has close links to the accounting profession and the research we produce is aimed to have an impact on policy and practice in accounting. 

The Adelaide Business School also hosts a series of research seminars that are attended by staff, postgraduate and honours degree students as part of our commitment to research and scholarship development and exchange.
