Abstract This study offers foundational insights into the ways in which perceptions of different interview media-principally, face-to-face, telephone and videoconferencing channels of communication-may influence researcher choices and practices. Informed by the reflections of 23 senior accounting researchers, our evidence identifies a duality of practices in the usage of different interviewing media, influenced primarily through the role played by experience, which informs perceptions upon which practices are based. We discuss this duality of practices in terms of information richness theory and channel expansion theory and offer further insights into the factors that influence and shape researchers' perceptions of the contextual suitability of particular media available to interview-based accounting research.
