Many studies have explored the publication productivity of accounting faculty. However, since recently graduated faculty publishes most research, these studies have failed to provide an adequate picture of the activity of more senior faculty. This paper explores the research of the older cohort of accounting academics. Using the population of US academics with doctoral degrees granted before 1977, this study shows that sustained productivity is associated with the institutional status of the degree granting school and the institutional status of the current employing school. In addition, continued scholarly work is related to the degree of early publishing the senior faculty person has done. This paper also explores the influence of faculty members’ gender, interest area and temporal cohort. Implications for managing faculty resources are drawn.
