JIll's research is mainly focused on disclosures in corporate annual reports. She has developed best practice disclosure indices for the NZ electricity industry (both network and generators), environmental reporting, and Malaysian local authorities. Jill’s continuing interest in the NZ electricity industry has resulted in publications related to financial performance, ownership structures, changes in annual reporting since corporatisation and relationships in the industry. She has also examined reporting by NZ schools, accounting policy choices of NZ entities, reporting of intellectual capital in NZ corporate reports and reporting of environmental issues by NZ companies. Three historical studies have examined the history of standard value accounting in NZ, the role of accounting in an Australasian sugar refinery, and the history of women chartered accountants in NZ. More recently, Jill has been researching the annual reporting of charities in NZ and Australia. She has published in a number of academic journals including the following A ranked (ABDC list) journals: Accounting, Auditing & Accountability, The British Accounting Review, Abacus, Financial Accountability & Management (FAM), Critical Perspectives on Accounting, Accounting & Finance Journal.
