The purpose of this paper is to provide a response to the commentary of Lowe, De Loo and Nama concerning the authors’ previous article, which was published in Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal, Volume 27 Number 8.
The authors address the main points of the commentary by Lowe et al.
In addressing each of these issues, the authors point out a few misunderstandings included in the critique as well as make an attempt to further clarify the previous argument.
The authors maintain that distinguishing between domain theory and method theory in accounting research will be of help to researchers in several ways.
