Proposes to evidence the colonization of the accounting knowledge production process by a relatively few élite institutions in the USA. By examining the doctoral origins of the editorial board members of six major accounting research journals between 1963 and 1994, demonstrates the extent of the colonization and its potential to bring closure to the knowledge production process.
