Brinn, Anthony Francis, Jones, Michael John and Pendlebury, Maurice Wilson 2001. Why Do UK Accounting and Finance Academics not Publish in top US Journals? The British Accounting Review 33 (2) , pp. 223-232. 10.1006/bare.2001.0160

In peer reviews of the quality of academic accounting and finance journals, US journals are consistently perceived to be the most prestigious. UK accounting and finance academics share these perceptions, and yet very few of them ever publish in top US journals. A survey of UK accounting and finance academics was undertaken in an attempt to ascertain why this is so. The respondents perceive that the preference of top US journals for a US focus to published articles, reinforced by a strong element of gatekeeping and the need to be able to network with the US academic community, provide major barriers to entry. As a result, there is a strong belief that efforts to publish in top US journals will be unsuccessful and, therefore, publishing in the UK is seen to be easier.
