Accounting research - Academic trends versus practical needs

Accounting has burgeoned as an academic discipline. Growth in teaching has been paralleled by growth in output of research articles. Baxter suggests that it would not be unreasonable to suppose that the research would centre on various practical aspects of an accountant's daily work; and that the spate of papers would cast a fresh and helpful light on such work. This picture would seem far from accurate.
