In this study the general and editorial strength of seven leading accounting journals is reported upon for the years 1983, 1985 and 1987. Using size-adjusted measures, we conclude that the editorial boards of the Journal of Accounting and Economics and the Journal of Accounting Research unambiguously dominate those of the other journals and that these two journals, with the Accounting Review, consistently outperformed expectation in attracting citations.
