Abstract


This study provides a critical review of different techniques used in recent accounting literature to investigate the association between corporate governance and corporate disclosure. Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to help future researchers to identify examples and to select suitable practices or to develop their own ones. It also provides contest of current issues related to the relationship between corporate disclosure and corporate governance and identifies gaps in the current literature that future research may aim to cover. The study examines 34 articles published during the 2007-2013 period. The review of these articles concludes that most of these published studies examined the association between corporate disclosure and one or more of board of directors, ownership construction and audit firm. The current study suggests that researchers can also examine the association between internal audit quality as an internal governance and corporate disclosure. The study reveals that researchers used a disclosure index and content analysis to measure corporate disclosure. However, other techniques can be applied as management earning forecast and the number of analysts.
