Abstract

This review of the accounting education literature includes 97 articles published during 2015 in six journals: (1) Journal of Accounting Education, (2) Accounting Education, (3) Advances in Accounting Education, (4) Global Perspectives on Accounting Education, (5) Issues in Accounting Education, and (6) The Accounting Educators' Journal. This article updates prior accounting education literature reviews by organizing and summarizing recent contributions to the accounting education literature. Articles are categorized into five sections corresponding to traditional lines of inquiry: (1) curriculum and instruction, (2) instruction by content area, (3) educational technology, (4) students, and (5) faculty. Suggestions for research in all areas are presented. Articles presenting instructional resources and cases published in the same six journals during 2015 are listed in appendices categorized by the appropriate content area.
