In April 2015, the Journal of Accounting Research published a virtual issue on international accounting research edited by Hans B. Christensen and Luzi Hail as a starting point for researchers who wish to explore this field of research. The list includes many interesting and influential articles published in JAR between 2009 and 2014, but is by definition (and as also noted by editors) nowhere near to complete.
This thread is meant to become a reading list for researchers interested in international accounting research. Which (additional) articles or books do you recommend as a starting point for this field of research? What are your "must" and "maybe" reads?
