A Systematic Review of Accounting Education Articles in Peer-Reviewed Domestic Iranian journals

Azadeh Alsadat Torabzadeh Bafghi


This article aims to examine papers in respected domestic journals about accounting research in the area of education and to assess the situation of accounting research in the field of education. In the accounting literature review part, 76 papers from 10 domestic journals dating back to 2019 were examined. Articles containing the phrases curriculum and education, content education, educational technology, students and professors, or a combination of these terms were examined for selection. The publications were either case studies, descriptive, experimental, or quasi-experimental. Articles are scrutinized in depth depending on their kind, title, author, and other factors. The papers are divided into five divisions based on the study topic: (1) curriculum, (2) educational assessment, (3) main accounting competencies, (4) field and content training, and (5) educational technology. Research gaps in accounting education have been discovered, and suggestions for future research have been made based on a comparison of prior studies collected in this study and the conventional classification of education.
