Abstract
Using 10 years of publication data (1995-2004) from four leading international business journals, we examine global patterns of international business research and school rankings. Although US institutions still lead in the international business research, non-US schools are making significant progress. Asian-Pacific and European schools are well represented among the schools that account for the most articles appearing in the four journals. International collaboration between scholars across the globe appears to enhance school ranking.

In this paper we measure the publishing productivity of New Zealand university accounting departments for the period 1992-1997. Publication productivity is assessed in terms of both the quantity of articles published and the quality of the journals where the articles appear. Data is obtained from the Accounting and Tax Index, ABI Inform and directly from Australian and New Zealand journals. To achieve a comprehensive assessment of publishing productivity the articles are weighted using various m...

I. INTRODUCTION Research productivity is often ranked for economics departments based on page counts of journal publications (for example, Graves, Marchand, and Thompson [1982]), while others rate the departments by the number of citations attributed to their faculty (for example, Davis and Papanek [1984]). Recently, Scott and Mitias [1996] used "flow" and "stock" concepts in their departmental rankings. While the flow of research can be counted to give credit to the department where authors are...

Using 4-year data (1990, 1994, 1998, and 2002), we have provided a ranking of schools with international business (IB) orientation based on the membership of editorial boards of 30 leading international business journals. Participation on the editorial boards of quality journals is highly selective, and should provide a quality indication of the schools. Both quality-unadjusted and adjusted board membership-based ranking are calculated in this study. Several interesting findings are worth noting...

Abstract This study provides a ranking in accounting research output in Europe during 1991-2002. We use a set of 19 accounting journals to rank accounting programmes for 253 European universities. UK universities are overwhelmingly represented in the top ranking. Over the entire period, the top three universities are the University of Manchester. London School of Economics and the University of Edinburgh. Some leading European accounting programmes made good progress in research output during th...

We chronicle the use of acknowledgments in 20th-century scholarship by analyzing and classifying more than 4,500 specimens covering a 100-year period. Our results show that the intensity of acknowledgment varies by discipline, reflecting differences in prevailing sociocognitive structures and work practices. We demonstrate that the acknowledgment has gradually established itself as a constitutive element of academic writing, one that provides a revealing insight into the nature and extent of sub...

As business becomes more international, have academic journals, particularly management journals, followed suit? In this paper we examine the amount and type of international research in 19 top management journals from 1976 to 1980 and again from 1996 to 2000. International business studies are classified as multinational enterprise (MNE) research and comparative research. Although the amount and type of international content varies by journal, it appears that many management journals are increa...

The article provides an overview about the development of international business theory beginning with Hymer’s seminal contribution in 1960 and ending with a contribution by Engwall from 2006 that links institutionalization theory to the multinational firm. Building on these theoretical developments, the article gives new directions for research regarding the internationalization phenomenon of Colombian firms. Furthermore, it is suggested that universities in Colombia that offer international bu...

Culture has been a widely researched topic in the International Business (IB) literature over the last decades. To better understand what culture actually means and its implication in firms? IB operations, several cultural models and taxonomies have been put forward. In this paper we seek to scrutinize the use of three well known cultural models - Hall?s (1976), Hofstede?s (1980a) and Trompenaars & Hampden-Turner?s (1993) - in the extant research. Using bibliometric techniques of the papers publ...

Culture and the influence of national cultures and cultural differences have been widely studied in International Business (IB) research especially over the past three decades. To better understand what culture actually means and its implications on firms’ international operations, several cultural models and taxonomies have been put forward. In this paper we review the main cultural models in the extant IB research – Hofstede’s (1980), Hall’s (1976) and Troompenaars’ (1993) – and Kogut and Sing...

Ranking research productivity of institutions periodically is of a great necessity nowadays, for that can not only help understand the latest development level of related fields but also contribute to finding gaps and quickly improve. In previous studies, the number of publications and further impact factors of journals is two widely used indexes to measure research productivity. However, impact factors do not always tally with a quality of the journal, which will lead to a bias of research prod...

Locational aspects of a firm's value chain configuration are recently gaining increasing attention by academics, practitioners, and policymakers. In this vein, the international business (IB) literature has produced a substantial body of knowledge on the offshoring phenomenon, offering a sizeable and constantly growing amount of evidence related to the offshoring organization and its organizational and managerial specifics. In this study, I map and assess the existing literature on offshoring of...
