This study provides a ranking in accounting research output in Europe during 1991-2002. We use a set of 19 accounting journals to rank accounting programmes for 253 European universities. UK universities are overwhelmingly represented in the top ranking. Over the entire period, the top three universities are the University of Manchester, London School of Economics and the University of Edinburgh. Some leading European accounting programmes made good progress in research output during the 12-year period. The distribution of publication is highly skewed. The top-5, top-10, and top-25 universities account for 21%, 30%, and 54% of the total weighted number of articles, respectively.
