This study examines whether and how parties adapt to party system saturation. A party system is oversaturated when a higher effective number of parties contests elections than predicted. Previous research has shown that parties are more likely to exit when party systems are oversaturated. We ex-amine whether parties will adapt by increasing the nicheness of their policy platform, by forming electoral alliances, or by merging. Based on time series analyses of 522 parties, 357 elections in 21 esta...

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the geographic dissemination of work in International Business (IB) by investigating the extent to which research topics tend to see mostly local use – with authors from the same geographic region as the article identified by the topic model as the first article in JIBS building on the topic – vs global use – where topics are used by authors across the world.,Topic modeling is applied to all articles published in the Journal of International Business S...
Abstract This study contributes to the firm growth debate by applying machine learning. We compare a prominent machine learning technique – random forest analysis (RFA) – to traditional regression in terms of their goodness-of-fit on a dataset of 168,055 firms from Belgium and the Netherlands. For each of these firms, we have one to six years of historical data involving demographic and financial information. The data show high variation in firm growth rates, which is difficult to capture with t...

We examine how the European Union (EU) standardization policy is perceived by firms by exploiting a survey dataset on firms’ benefits. We explore whether perceived benefits are associated with firm size and firm capabilities. We find strong evidence that the perceived benefits of standardization is not equally distributed across firm size classes, industries and countries. Our study indicates that small ventures are less likely to perceive benefits from EU standardization than their larger count...

More and more workers in Western economies are operating as freelancers in the so-called ‘gig economy’, moving from one project—or gig—to the next. A lively debate revolves around the question as to whether this new employment relationship is actually good for innovation in the 21 st century economy. Proponents argue that in this gig process valuable knowledge is created and transferred from one organization to the next via freelancers through their sequence of temporary gigs or projects. Antago...

This paper studies how increasing dimensionality in a market space feeds into the emergence of a sustainable entrepreneurial population—energy cooperatives in Germany. Our theoretical model conceptualizes the market as a multi-dimensional feature space and offers insights as to when and where new types of entrepreneurial activities emerge. We demonstrate that (1) the rise of a socio-cognitive dimension greenness created novel social demand and opened opportunities for sustainable entrepreneurshi...

Why do some public organizations survive for many decades, whereas others are terminated within a few years? This question of organizational survival has long intrigued public administration scholars. To explain longevity, public administration research has focused on organizational design features and adaptive capacities. The results have been inconclusive. This article explores an additional explanation for survival and demise: the density dependence theory as formulated in the field of organi...

Understanding where (ineffective) organizational rules come from is of vital importance for both public administration scholars and practitioners. Yet little is known about the underlying mechanisms that explain why external rules may cause organizational rule breeding and, as a by-product, red tape. Using a combination of archival and interview data, the authors empirically study rule-breeding processes in the case of Gasunie, which is a heavily regulated Dutch gas transport organization. The a...
