Bridging the gap between academic accounting research and professional practice

Elaine Evans (Editor), Roger Burritt (Editor), James Guthrie (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Book/Anthology


Why is academic accounting research still lacking impact and relevance? Why is it considered so detached and worlds apart from practice and society? These and many more questions are tackled in this new publication commissioned by the Institute and the Centre for Accounting, Governance and Sustainability (CAGS) in the School of Commerce at the University of South Australia. Each chapter provides fresh insights from leading accounting academics, policy makers and practitioners. The book triggers a call for action, with contributors unanimously agreeing more collaboration is needed between all three elements that make up the accounting profession - researchers, policy makers and practitioners.
