The Accounting Review has changed dramatically over the years. The purpose of this study is to document these changes, putting into perspective the articles that are currently published in The Accounting Review. In particular, this study compares the work of those authors who had the most publications in The Accounting Review (Leading Authors) during 1926–1945 with more recent contributions. The results with respect to topic of articles, research methods, citations, and article length reflect the Leading Authors' practical orientation, an attribute that is not particularly apparent in the work of current authors.
