In the current paper, we apply a citation analysis, a limited content analysis and an analysis of authorship to the first decade of the European Accounting Review (EAR). Based on results from our citation analysis, we conclude that EAR contributed to the advancement of accounting knowledge. In its first decade, EAR covered a wide variety of research topics, which are found to be representative of the European accounting research community. Whereas authorship in EAR is centred in only relatively few countries, contributions originate from a total of 34 countries. Overall, our findings align with the journal’s aims and scope.
