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 increasing their international content while others are not.

(2000) examined the relative quality of 30 international business (IB) journals. The article's objectives were to present an objective analysis of journal quality for tenure and promotion decisions, to guide researchers considering submission options, and to provide the academic community with an enhanced understanding of IB publication outlets. Using citation analyses and a survey questionnaire, journal rankings were developed. As designed, the study was carefully executed and provides a compre...

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...

Business schools strive to meet two goals: knowledge exploration through research and knowledge exploitation through instruction. Our results indicate that research performance (pages published in leading journals) and M.B.A. (master of business administration) program performance (popular business press rankings) are different. Research performance was improved by the number of faculty, the proportion of full professors, the proportion of assistant professors, and editorships. M.B.A. program pe...

This study investigates the impact of various top management team characteristics on firm international diversification. Relying on data from 126 firms in the electronics industry, we find that certain top management team characteristics are related to international expansion. Specifically, results indicate that lower average age, higher average tenure, higher average elite education, higher average international experience, and higher tenure heterogeneity are associated with firm international ...

This study examines the use of formal rankings of journals by management departments for personnel decision purposes. We posit that the probability of adopting a list of formal rankings is related to a set of characteristics of the department. Few schools have formal lists of journals. Our empirical findings imply that the probability of adopting a list is positively correlated with department size and is inversely correlated with the perceived quality of the department. Considerable variation e...

A frequently used method for determining the influence rating of a journal article is the citation count. This article argues that simply counting citations may not be sufficient. Instead, to gain a fuller understanding of the influence of an article on future research, the importance of the cited reference to the citing article should be examined. To illustrate this suggested method, a sample of articles from Academy of Management Review and Academy of Management Journal was analyzed. Results i...

Our study develops and uses a new methodology for analyzing journal citations to recent publications to determine which management journals now have the greatest influence on the field of management. It analyzes the 23637 academic journal references cited in the 1275 articles published in 17 key management journals during 1993 and 1994, focusing on citations to references published up to the modal vintage of 4 years earlier. Most cited as a percentage of all these references was Strategic Manage...

Downsizing and layoffs are an important mechanism for U.S. firms to cope with their strategic and economic environment. In contrast, the Japanese tradition of lifetime employment limits the ability of firms to employ layoffs as a strategic measure, relegating its use to conditions of financial distress. This paper provides the first comparison of layoffs in Japan and the United States and examines stock price reactions to layoff announcements in each country from 1990 to 1994. Agency theory and ...

We explored the differences between the joint venture, total ownership, and partial equity positions used by Japanese companies investing in U.S. manufacturing via a secondary data analysis. Partial ownership was used significantly more often in high-technology industries. Joint ventures were significantly more likely to be used in politically sensitive industries and in new entities, and when the Japanese partner had experience with the product.

Purpose This paper aims to contribute to the core research in international business (IB), namely, the relationship between multinationality and performance and is concerned with the quality of past empirical research designs. Design/methodology/approach On the basis of 49 studies, given in a literature review, the match between performance measures used in empirical studies and the underlying theoretical streams that explain the effects on benefits and costs of multinationality is critically ev...

Mirroring the growing trend for firms to support their operations by locating activities abroad, research on the practice of offshoring has increased considerably in recent years. However, despite the mounting research, understanding of the key factors influencing decision-making for offshoring remains surprisingly limited due to fragmentation. In this study, we synthesize and integrate insights from different research domains in order to develop a comprehensive decisional framework for key offs...

There have been few empirical studies of the determinants of voluntary environmental management practices (VEMPs) of MNE subsidiaries operating in emerging countries. To provide insight on this issue, this study explores the antecedent factors that drive MNE subsidiaries to adopt VEMPs, using data drawn from a key emerging country – Turkey. Based largely on the arguments of institutional theory and the resource based view of the firm, a number of hypotheses are formulated in order to investigate...

Social information exchange (SIE) in organizations has long been an area of interest for management scholars; however, in recent years, this literature has become fragmented and widely dispersed. As communication and transfer of information increasingly occur between individuals and aggregates of widely varying national and regional cultures, a reconsideration and review of the topic is appropriate, including identification of key issues in this research domain and an integration and synthesis o...

Purpose – This paper aims to outline different views on international business (IB) as an academic discipline and looks into how IB scholars can cope with challenges to their disciplinary identity when stand-alone IB departments are merged with other departments such as management, marketing or strategy in business schools and universities. Design/methodology/approach – The article offers a critical reflection on the development and future of IB as a discipline. The two authors are an IB and a M...

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...

Despite the vitality and dynamism that the field of entrepreneurship has experienced in the last decade, the issue of whether it comprises an effective network of (in)formal communication linkages among the most influential scholars within the area has yet to be examined in depth. This study follows a formal selection procedure to delimit the `relational environment' of the field of entrepreneurship and to analyze the existence and characterization of (in)visible college(s) based on a theoretica...
