While researching accounting research online, I came to know that accounting researchers study different accounting disciplines. What are these and what methods are used?

Accounting researchers study and research into different fields of accounting such as financial accounting, managerial accounting, auditing and tax accounting.  Accounting researchers use different research methods such as analytical modeling, archival data analysis, surveys, experiments and field study among many others in their daily routine. Many accredited institutions offer online PhD programs in accounting which allow you to carry out accounting research.
