    Our theoretical research was developed based on Papineau‘s methodology inorder to be able to develop a comprehensive framework by constructing an internal history ofthe literature. By using this particular approach the main body of the literature is summarizedconducting in the end to a rigorous and comprehensive understanding of it with fruitfulimplications. Both true and fair view and creative accounting are dynamic concepts thatcomprised various debates in the literature regarding to their conceptual delimitations anddefinition. One implication of our study is related to the elaboration of definitions for trueand fair view and further terminology assessment for creative accounting, based on the mainfindings reflected by conducting Papineau`s methodology. Other implication can be related tothe internal construction history of the literature and presenting the primary core termscomprised in the area of research of true and fair view and creative accounting.
