Although publication benchmarking studies for accounting faculty have been completed for highly ranked research institutions, there is not comparable data for the hundreds of smaller, less high profile, and less resource rich accounting programs. This study provides data for institutions that rank 200+ in the BYU accounting rankings. We take a sample of 50 institutions from this population to develop publication benchmarking for promotion to associate professor. We also provide insights on the timing of publications relative to promotion dates and compare these results to previous benchmarking studies. These results are useful for faculty at these institutions to inform their research efforts and to inform promotion and other decisions by faculty and administrators.
