      Abstract

      Recent notorious episodes of business malpractice have brought to the attention of a wider public the issue of ethics in accounting. Academic research provides one set of resources for tackling the issues raised by scandals and other sensitive areas of accounting practice. Based on a database of nearly 500 articles gathered from a range of accounting and business ethics journals, this paper describes and analyses the characteristics of what has been published to date. It identifies patterns and trends in publication outlets and the type of research conducted, and – though a comparison with issues that have been raised in the general business ethics literature – it offers guidance to researchers who intend to take the field of accounting ethics forward using empirical methods.
