Abstract

I comment here on a document by Journal of Accounting Research (JAR). The document presents itself as a report on its own research-misconduct investigation of a problem in an article it published in 2020. The investigation was undertaken in response to a call by Stephen Walker, a call which he made publicly in the September 2022. I suggest that the JAR Report is highly unsatisfactory.
