This paper analyzes and categorizes published research papers in three specialist accounting history journals—Accounting History, The Accounting Historians Journal, and Accounting History Review. A key objective is to highlight under-represented areas for future research. We inductively derive a categorization system, and classify over four hundred papers from 2006–2015 according to twelve categories. The results show some rather under-researched areas, namely religion and accounting education. Using statistical analysis techniques, we note similarities and differences across the three journals and suggest avenues for future researchers.
