The basic beliefs defining the research paradigm can be viewed from three fundamental dimensions, ontology, epistemology, and methodology. Ontology and epistemology pay an attention to the influence of a person’s perspective on reality. Ontology is a claim and assumption about the essence of reality, what seems real as reality, what community constructs reality and how the community interacts. This article is a literature review related to grounded research paradigms in the field of accounting studies. The results of the study reflect that the research approach in accounting is not limited to quantitative measures but also can be approached through a grounded research approach. Grounded theory cannot be separated from the philosophy of science. In the course of undergoing evolution and development into a method, often the main exponents experience conflicts or differing points of view on a certain aspect. This happened in the early originators of grounded theory, Barney Glaser and Anselm Strauss, so that the term Straussian and Glaserian grounded theory emerged. The difference between the two exponents of grounded theory lies in the data analysis process, in particular the procedures used. Coding in grounded theory is a process of analyzing data involving researchers as actors in exploration, intervention and conceptualization procedures (Walker, 2011). This article presents a literature review on how grounded theory can be an alternative methodology in accounting studies.
