Despite the fundamental importance of publication to the academic institution, there are a significant number of dormant accounting scholars who simply do not publish. Building upon an existing literature on the determinants of academic productivity, this paper identifies factors which have the potential to revive scholarly productivity. Specifically, the current research reinforces the positive impact of scholarly presentations, sabbatical leave, and teaching assistants on reviving the dormant scholar. Similarly, reducing activities which compete for the academic’s time (teaching undergraduate courses, consulting, and service to the institution) will increase the odds of publication.
