Abstract
We use a quality-based approach to assess contributing institutions and authors in international business (IB) research. Specifically, we use Google Scholar citations of individual articles to weigh the number of IB research articles in core IB and other non-IB elite journals. Our approach mitigates concerns about the quality difference among articles across different journals and within individual journals. We find evidence to suggest that IB research in the European and Asia-Pacific regions exhibits an upward trend over the 1995–2011 period. With respect to institutional research quality, we document that an IB program with faculty members working with their peers in foreign countries and the presence of a doctoral program can enhance an institution’s research quality. Prolific authors are very mobile and typically have global experience.

Most governmental research assessment exercises do not use citation data for the Social Sciences and Humanities as Web of Science or Scopus coverage in these disciplines is considered to be insufficient. We therefore assess to what extent Google Scholar can be used as an alternative source of citation data. In order to provide a credible alternative, Google Scholar needs to be stable over time, display comprehensive coverage, and provide non-biased comparisons across disciplines. This article as...

We conduct rankings on finance journals based on a rich database of citations for all articles from a set of 23 finance journals during 1990–2010. Our study is a major improvement in the literature by directly measuring the impact of each article within a set of finance journals. Our findings in journal citations generally echo the concern in Smith (2004) that some articles in premier journals have no/low impact while some articles in non-premier journals have high impact. In addition, we docume...

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...

We contend that the international strategy adopted by and the international experience of top executives in parent firms, as well as the embeddedness of foreign subsidiaries in host countries, moderate the impact of institutional distance between home and host countries on the divergence of isomorphic pressures experienced by foreign subsidiary managers. We further suggest that diverging isomorphic pressures are more likely to spur foreign subsidiary managers to deinstitutionalize organizational...

We propose a new data source (Google Scholar) and metric (Hirsch's h-index) to assess journal impact in the field of economics and business. A systematic comparison between the Google Scholar h-index and the ISI Journal Impact Factor for a sample of 838 journals in economics and business shows that the former provides a more accurate and comprehensive measure of journal impact. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

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...

This study investigates the appropriateness of using publication of an article in a top (specifically, top five) management journal as a proxy for its quality. Social Science Citation Index citation counts were collected over 7-year event windows for articles published in 34 management journals in 1993 and 1996. Overall, the authors found that articles published in the five journals most often considered to be the top ones in management tend to be cited more often than ones published in the othe...

Abstract The International Business Review (IBR) is a leading international academic journal in the field of International Business (IB). Such leadership is reflected in the large number of publications that grow year after year and particularly in the large number of citations received from other journals of high academic prestige. The aim of this study is to conduct a bibliometric overview of the leading trends regarding the journal’s publications and citations since its creation in 1992 until...

We propose a novel approach to comparing publications across business disciplines. Specifically, we aim to provide an objective method for evaluating the interdisciplinary value of publications based on intradisciplinary author rankings. Using publication data from the leading journals in accounting, economics, finance, management, and marketing, we first construct intradisciplinary author rankings and then utilize these rankings to estimate the marginal effect of an additional publication on th...

We use Resource Dependency Theory and Human Capital Theory to explain entrepreneurship research, which is a relatively new research field over the last decade. Using citation analysis based on a rich database of 191,695 citations on 2,154 entrepreneurship articles published in leading journals from 2002 to 2013, we find that geographic diversity, international collaboration, top research scholars, and top research institutions enhance entrepreneurship research quality, which is measured by the n...

Attracting talent with international capabilities is critical for the internationalization of business schools and other knowledge-intensive service-industry organizations. However, limited coverage beyond the top cohort of business schools in existing research-based rankings does not allow the majority of institutions to use these rankings as global signaling systems of their research performance. This is particularly detrimental to the development of younger research fields, such as Internatio...

Purpose Innovation plays a pivotal role in a national economy and in the research and development of science and technology. Because the elements, capability and development direction of innovation in various countries are dissimilar, national innovative capacity also varies by country. However, previous studies have predominantly measured national innovative capacity through empirical studies by using a single index of innovation output, ignoring that the forms of innovation are heterogeneous a...

Business management requires both holistic and tailored strategy for every business since every corporation has its own unique characteristics and qualifications. Different qualifications create different risks, and different risks require customized approaches by managers. Air transport has always been seen as having an inherently strategic role. It has obvious direct military applications, but it is also highly visible and, for a period—and in some countries still—is viewed as a flag carrier, ...

The growth of emerging market multinational enterprises (EM MNEs) has enriched existing international business theories but conveyed also new puzzles and questions for these theories and perspectives. To synthesize what we know and what we do not concerning international expansion of EM MNEs, we use the qualitative content analysis method, systematically reviewing 166 articles from 11 leading IB and management journals published during the period of 1990–2014. Our review examines five major area...

This study provides a global perspective on citations of articles published in ten business ethics journals between 1999 and 2012 and establishes three findings. First, the results indicate that Journal of Business Ethics and Business and Society are the two top business ethics journals based on the distribution of normalized citations received. Second, although North America, particularly the US, remains the top producer of business ethics research, it has been surpassed by Europe in terms of w...

We conduct an updated retrospective evaluation of The International Review of Economics and Finance during 1992–2015. Over its 24years of publication, the journal continued to improve in terms of author diversity in geographic regions and research impact. We observe that the share of authors among Asia-Pacific academic institutions has noticeable increased in recent years. In addition, the journal added a number of special issues to draw the interest of scholars worldwide. Research quality, as i...
