Findings – It was found that universities risk being seriously compromised by this “matrix madness”, and that it also specifically disadvantages women. Originality/value – The paper presents an examination of the intersection between knowledge, power effects, accounting, gender and academic performance management. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Pacific Accounting Review Emerald Publishing
