Research is an iterative process with multiple steps, as illustrated in the following graphic.The first iteration is represented by the large blue boxes. As you move through the process and evaluate your search results, you may decide to select a different database, or revise your search strategy, in order to increase the number of results, or to make the results more relevant.

 

Recommended Databases

  • The Financial accounting research literature is scattered across a number of disciplines. The following Library databases are recommended starting points for identifying relevant research findings on financial accounting topics.
  • Remember to limit the results to Peer Reviewed (Scholarly) Journals, as these databases also include non-scholarly sources such as newspapers and business magazines.
  • Financial accounting research in applied fields (e.g.nonprofit organizations) may also appear in specialized journals, so be prepared to broaden your search by identifying databases which focus on these areas.
