The first Accounting Research Workshop was in 1998. Since 2001, the ARW takes place biannually in exchange with its sister conference, the Workshop on Accounting and Economics.

Ever since, the ARW witnessed numerous presentations of papers that later were published in leading journals such as the Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Research, European Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting and Economics, Review of Accounting Studies, Journal of Accounting Research, or Management Science.
