Science research expense 会計変化の本質の研究:制度からの実務および理論の展開に対する逆影響の検討を中心に 17K04084 Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C) Representative 2017/04-2022/03 本研究の目的は19世紀イギリス鉄道会社とガス会社の会計実務の発展に対する議会法制定のプロセスの影響を検討することである。1800年から1947年までの議会資料を,従来の歴史研究に加え,テキスト(データ)マイニングで分析している。申請時,研究対象は議事資料と議会文書から構成される議会資料のうち議事資料であった。具体的には議事資料の中の本会議議事録に注目し,法案作成前の議会での問題化および法案作成後の議会での審議を「議会法の制定プロセス」と位置付け検討してきた。 2018年度までに,1870年までの鉄道に関係する上院と下院の議事録(512件)のテキスト化と1870年までのテキストマイニングを完了していた。なお変化を明確に捉えることができるように,データは20年分ずつ分けて分析することにし,それぞれの分析において,全出現単語の1年ごとの重みづけした出現頻度の数値を計算し,その数値をもとにキーワードを抽出し,それらの数値の変化から当時
  2. Science research expense Study of the essence of the accounting changes: Examinations of the theory generation process by using text-mining and statistics 26380632 Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C) Representative 2014/04-2017/03 The purpose of this study was to re-examine the factor that affected the theorization of accounting. I took up the British 19th railway accounting that was the origin of the modern accounting and focused on not only the financial information but also the non-financial information. In addition, I challenged not only experimental/historical study but also objective study using text mining and statistical methods in order to improve scientific of the results. As a results, not only the dividends policy but also the capital account closure problem influenced their accounting changes. It was proved statistically. Their practices led their system and theory. Some accounting practices' changes were related each other and they stimulated the establishment of the theory of the separation of capital expenditure from revenue expenditure. They are published in journals.
  3. Science research expense The Study of Accounting Changes Using Text Mining 23730462 Grant-in-Aid for Young Scientists (B) Representative 2011-2012 The aim of this study was to analyze the financial reporting practices in the 19th century British railway companies using text mining to study the essence of accounting changes. Especially, the accounting changes on fixed asset's accounting proceedings were studied and it was found that there was the influence of infeasibility of fundraising at that time.
  4. Science research expense The Objective Study on Early Financial Reporting System Using Text Mining and Search Engine 21730392 Grant-in-Aid for Young Scientists (B) Representative 2009-2010 British railway accounting in the 19th century is the origin of modern financial reporting system. In this study, the reports, which main railway had preferred after each general meeting, and the associated documents were analyzed by using text mining. More specifically, the influence of infeasibility of fundraising on accounting changes that had assumed in my past study was reexamined. In the reports of some railway companies, keywords "closed" which had meant the infeasibility of fundraising were confirmed. Furthermore, it was found that they had positively adopted double accounting systems, depreciation accounting, and cost management.
