Abstract
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. First, US schools play a significant leadership role among the leading IB programs. Second, the findings of this study also show the major contribution of non-US schools, which confirms the importance of the global nature of the IB discipline. Third, the top-ranked schools share a number of characteristics. Finally, the correlation among different ranking criteria can be low, particularly for the top-ranked schools, suggesting that care should be exercised in interpreting school ranking.

The Editors of the Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) always try to publish the best international business research. Unfortunately, there will probably never be a simple response to the question, What constitutes excellent international business research? We might make some progress, however, if we first attempt to define international business research and then identify several noteworthy examples.

This article presents an alternative approach to evaluating marketing faculties in colleges and universities throughout the United States. The authors have made this assessment on the basis of editorial review board memberships rather than the more traditional approach of counting the number of academic publications by faculty members. This evaluative technique, originally presented in the finance literature, provides an interesting contrast to existing studies.

The paper ranks Departments of Economics in the U.S., based on publications in a set of eight "Blue Ribbon" journals during the period 1987-91. We adjust for variation in character and page size across the journals, allow for differences in journal quality and deal with changes in department composition over the period by assigning affiliation at the time of assessment rather than at the date of publication. Alternative journal set specifications are examined to test the sensitivity of the compo...

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 th...

This study examines differences in finance research productivity and influence across 661 academic institutions over the five-year period from 1989 through 1993. The authors find that forty institutions account for over 50 percent of all articles published by sixteen leading journals over the five-year period; sixty-six institutions account for two-thirds of the articles. Influence is more skewed, with as few as twenty institutions accounting for 50 percent of all citations to articles in these ...

The relative importance of various finance and related journals to research published in major finance journals is determined by noting the frequency that all other journals are cited in the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, and Journal of Money, Credit and Banking during the period 1980 to mid−1985. Journals are ranked on the basis of their actual number of citations, citations per article, and citations per 10,000 words publishe...

This study seeks to assess and rank the relative quality of 30 international business journals using both a citation analysis and a survey approach. Journal rankings are presented using both approaches in addition to a composite ranking. The rankings provide an objective analysis of journal quality for tenure and promotion committees, for IB researchers considering journal submission options and provide the academic community with a better understanding of which international business publicatio...

This article examines the standing of the Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) among scholarly journals, and changes in its influence, over a 11 year period (1981 to 1991) using a variety of citation indices. We suggested that two new measures—a prestige index and a trajectory index—are helpful in assessing a journal's influence and reputation. We estimate these, as well as several standard citation measures, to gauge JIBS′ progress in the recent past. We find that JIBS does well on ...

The recent article by Lee Nehrt on "The Ranking of Masters Programs in International Business" in the Fall 1987 issue of JIBS, aims to remedy the perceived inadequacies of the 1984 Ball and McCulloch ranking of "leading" International Business programs in the U.S., based on opinions of members of the Academy of International Business, by developing a ranking of these schools, based on "facts." Nehrt did indeed set himself a formidable task attempting to collect such information in view not only ...

International business (IB) research has made enormous strides in the quarter century since JIBS was inaugurated. This article reflects upon the development of IB research during that period. It first reviews the findings and recommendations of a comprehensive survey of the embryonic field of IB research, conducted twenty-five years ago. Several early trends identified then are discussed: the astonishing acceleration in the pace of IB research; the broadening of research activity across a greate...

The authors investigate published international business research in four international business journals over a 10‐year period, 1995–2004: (a) patterns of coauthorship across regions, and (b) the relation between coauthorship patterns and the quality of international business (IB) articles. A cross‐region coauthorship enhances the quality of an article, suggesting that international collaboration creates synergy in IB research. The authors do not see any positive correlation between alphabetica...

This paper contributes to the international business lit‐erature by exploring the degree of globalization in our international business journals. Through an investigation of all multi‐authored articles in core international business journals over a five‐year period, we test the nature of international business authorship by following Rugman’s insights on the regional nature of the MNE. Our findings suggest that within the Triad regions of North America and Western Europe, and similar to MNE patt...

We examine the citations from four international business (IB) journals over 2000‐2004 to show the areas, the journals, and the institutions that impact IB research. The leading works that influence IB research are primarily management journals, scholarly books, and IB journals. IB research is published in non‐IB journals, as well and this has influenced the recent research in IB journals. U.S. and non‐U.S. academic institutions and non‐academic organizations are among the top 100 institutions t...

The science and practice of international business is advanced through scholarly contribution to the leading international business journals. Increased competition among academic institutions has led to increased emphasis on publication in the leading international business journals. Yet, little is known as to the answers to questions such as: (1) Who are the most prolific authors in the leading international business journals? and (2) Which educational institutions appear poised to lead interna...

ABSTRACT This article contributes to the international business literature by exploring the role of Latin America within the core international business scholarship. As to the role of Latin America in international business scholarship, we find that Latin America is generally represented as a geographic study area; additionally, we find that Latin America-based authors are disproportionately absent from the core international business journals. We offer several recommendations to better position...

To examine these questions, the study examined scholarly work in international business over the time period 1996–2006 in six leading international business journals (Journal of International Business Studies, Management International Review, Journal of World Busi...
