Relevance of Accounting Research (ROAR) Scores: Ratings of titles and abstracts by accounting professionals

The relevance of academic accounting research to practice is frequently discussed by accounting academics. The authors have created Relevance of Accounting Research (ROAR) scores by asking accounting professionals to read and evaluate the titles and abstracts of every article published in twelve leading accounting journals for the years 2016 to 2018. These scores allow for an evidence-based evaluation and discussion of how academic accounting research is perceived by accounting professionals.
