This study is motivated by two research questions: (1) Which recent contributions have been driving the research agenda in international business? (2) Which emerging themes in the literature are likely to set the stage for future work? 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 Business, International Marketing Review, Journal of International Marketing, and International Business Review). Next, a Delphi study of the most prolific authors in these journals over the same time period was conducted to delineate a future research agenda in international business. Addressing these two research questions provides us with a more complete understanding of the progress made to date in international business research, and provides a glimpse of the future. Journal of International Business Studies (2008) 39, 1220–1235. doi:10.1057/palgrave.jibs.8400412

In a radical departure from traditional thinking, Alan Rugman proclaims globalization a myth. The reality, he says, is that business is almost entirely "regional", with multinational firms aggressively competing in the triad of North America, Europe and East Asia. Rugman analyzes what this really means for companies and explains how they can develop successful regional/local strategies. The book should help businesspeople replace ineffective "global" strategies with strategies that focus on the ...

ABSTRACT The authors surveyed professional members of the American Marketing Association who designated international marketing as a field of interest. The study measures which international business research topics marketing practitioners perceive to be of high utility or importance. In addition, the data reduction technique of factor analysis identified five latent factors (Global Market Expansion; International Marketing Management; Management Issues in an International Context; Quality, Valu...

Using a behavioral approach, this study identifies and delineates components of experiential knowledge in the internationalization process. Three hypotheses are developed and tested. They center around the lack of knowledge in the areas of foreign business, foreign institutions and firm internationalization, as well as the effect that this lack of knowledge has on managers' perceived cost in the internationalization process. With the help of a LISREL-based structural model, the three hypotheses ...

Theory suggests and results show that firm performance is initially positive but eventually levels off and becomes negative as international diversification increases. Product diversification moderates the relationship between international diversification and performance. International diversification is negatively related to performance in nondiversified firms, positively related in highly product-diversified firms, and curvilinearly related in moderately product-diversified firms. Internation...

An increasing number of new venture firms are internationalizing their business operations early in their life cycles. Previous explanations of this trend have focused on the importance of technological knowledge, skills, and resources for new ventures' international expansion. However, little is known about how these firms use the technological learning gained through internationalization. This study examined the effects of international expansion, as measured by international diversity and mod...

This study examines the determinants of foreign equity ownership in joint ventures in China. Drawing upon Duning's ownership, locational and internalization paradigm and the literature on bargaining power, eleven variables that impact foreign ownership preferences and concessions are examined. These variables are advertising intensity, foreign capital input, country risk of China, EJV investment amount, EJV contractual duration, cultural distance, competitive intensity, local partner state owner...

The role of managerial perceptions of cultural distance in the internationalization decisions of 'LOW-TECH' firms is explored in this thesis. A first empirical study examined managers' perceptions of dissimilarity in food culture in foreign markets (food culture distance), as an antecedent to adaptation of an export marketing strategy for food companies. A second empirical study examined the explanatory power of food culture distance in relation to choice of foreign markets by food exporters. Th...

Dieser Beitrag widmet sich den Problemen und Anwendungsfeldern der Forschungsleistungsmessung mit Hilfe von Zitationen. Dazu ist zunachst grundlegend zu klaren, weshalb Zitationen als Indikator fur Forschungsleistung geeignet sind und wo die Grenzen dieses Konzepts liegen. Darauf aufbauend sollen die gangigen Methoden zur Erstellung wissenschaftlicher Rankings vorgestellt und kritisch bewertet werden. Dabei stellt sich heraus, dass fur eine deutschsprachige Sozialwissenschaft wie die Betriebswir...

This thesis considers how leaders of smaller firms attach meanings to internationalization. This is examined by the means of a survey questionnaire of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises [SME] operating in the clothing industry of Parana State in Brazil, and 58 qualitative interviews with the leaders of these firms. The thesis argues that existing theories of internationalization overlook the question of what international involvement means to relevant actors and in so doing have produced a body ...

Purpose – Structural equation modeling (SEM) has been widely used to examine complex research models in international business and marketing research. While the covariance-based SEM (CB-SEM) approach is dominant, the authors argue that the field’s dynamic nature and the sometimes early stage of theory development more often require a partial least squares SEM (PLS-SEM) approach. The purpose of this paper is to critically review the application of SEM techniques in the field. Design/methodology/a...

ABSTRACT The broad goal of this study is to explore how the perennial debate on standardization and localization is being shaped on the Worldwide Web. More specifically, the study explores the depiction of cultural values on the web. With limited research investigating this issue, there is no consensus yet regarding whether multinationals depict local cultural values in their international web sites or design standardized sites for global audiences. In an attempt to broaden the empirical evidenc...

This paper deals with the question of how research on marketing issues in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) can contribute to the international marketing theory. Regional studies provide valuable insights into business environments, marketing systems and practices in specific countries and geographical areas, which explain their high appeal among marketing practitioners. While contributing to the general body of knowledge in marketing, they often lack a strong role in theory development. Two appr...

The purpose of the paper was to investigate the impact of cross-border acquisitions on shareholder value, to verify the impact of prior foreign presence for acquisition performance and to compare results of acquisitions into Eastern and Western European markets. Event method was applied for a sample of multiple acquisitions conducted by a single acquirer. While we find that cross-border acquisitions in the studied sample tend to destroy value, these findings are not statistically significant. We...

Abstract Although research on foreign market entry and expansion behavior has attracted significant interest in the literature, there is a general lack of research (either conceptual or empirical) on the exit behavior of international companies. To address this issue, the authors develop a conceptual framework to understand firms’ foreign exit behavior. The objective is to lay the conceptual foundation for subsequent empirical research in this area. A series of research propositions have been ad...
