Summary This paper provides an insight into the nature and the extent of social accounting research being undertaken within Australasia. It demonstrates that Australasian researchers account for a significant amount of internationally published social accounting research, but emphasises that the research effort seems to be confined to a limited number of researchers perhaps reflecting a lack of 'take-up' in this area in terms of the scale of participation. Information is also presented about the relative propensity of journals within the sample to publish social accounting research, and identifies that [']top tier' accounting journals historically have not published social accounting research. The paper also considers various factors which seem to be impeding the `recruitment' of new social accounting researchers.
