Management accounting theory aims to contribute to manag­ers using accounting reports for supporting their management decisions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, such insights would be essential for sup­porting decisions during lockdowns and other policy makers’ rules imposed by this health crisis. To unveil how academic literature addresses manage­ment accounting challenges arising from the COVID-19 specific context, this study conducts an automated computer analysis of the bibliometric data addressing financial issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
