Abstract
Abstract * This study measures and ranks the productivity of academic institutions based on their number of publications from 1991 to 2000, in the top 3 core international business journals. * This study serves as a useful update of the previous studies by Morrison and Inkpen (1991) and Inkpen and Beamish (1994) examining three core international business journals namely, Management International Review, Journal of International Business Studies, and Journal of World Business. An attempt has been made to better represent the international business research publications and add strength to the generalizability of the findings. Key Results * University of Western Ontario, University of South Carolina, and University of Texas at Austin occupy the top three ranks in terms of publications in MIR, JIBS, and JWB during the 1991-2000 period. These rankings change significantly when analyzed over the five year time periods from 1991-1995 to 1996- 2000. Introduction The increase in the amount of international research in management, accounting, finance, marketing and MIS journals (Werner 2002, Werner/Brouthers 2002), increase in the international activities of business faculty (Kwok/Arpan 2002), and the growth in the number of international business journals (DuBois/Reeb 2000), are all evidence of the growing importance of international business research amongst business school faculty. Moreover, publishing in academic journals is becoming increasingly important for faculty in the international business area under review for tenure, promotion, or annual merit pay decisions. Although scholarly manuscripts, books, and papers presented at professional meetings are acknowledged to be important mediums of research outlet, journal publications are given a greater weight in making decisions of tenure, promotion and pay increases of international business faculty in most of the universities. Furthermore, the publishing output of a university faculty has become the key criterion in measuring the quality of a university faculty as well as the quality of the particular program at the university (Henry/Burch 1974, Stahl/Leap/Wei 1988). This study measures and ranks the productivity of academic institutions based on their number of publications from 1991 to 2000, in the top 3 core international business journals. The time period of 1991-2000 serves as a useful update of the previous studies done by Morrison and Inkpen (1991) and Inkpen and Beamish (1994). The update helps in comparing the rankings of international business schools, based on their number of publications in Journal of International Business Studies, across three different time periods. Thereafter, the schools are ranked on the basis of their number of publications in the top 3 core international business journals- Management International Review, Journal of International Business Studies, and Journal of World Business. By including 3 journals, the study attempts to better represent the international business research publications and add strength to the generalizability of the findings. Previous Ranking Studies Because of the increasing interest in publishing, several studies spanning various academic disciplines have been undertaken to determine which university faculty has been most prolific in the publication of articles in scholarly journals (a detailed reference list of such studies is provided in Stahl, Leap, and Wei (1988). Ball and McCulloch (1984) were the first to do a ranking study of the international business education programs in American schools. They surveyed the AIB members and asked them to rank the top 10 schools in the country based on the quality of the international business programs at the graduate and the undergraduate levels. There were no fixed criteria used for the rankings, and the respondents were asked to list 5 criteria that they used in the rankings. Nehrt (1987) ranked the masters programs in international business using a set of 18 criteria, assuming equal weight to each criterion. …

It has been argued that the best available criterion for evaluation of university faculty and institutional quality is the relative quantity of published research and scholarship contributed by the individual or the institution.' Whether or not one views this argument as valid, it cannot be denied that this criterion is widely applied both explicitly and implicitly. During the last decade much effort has been expended in compiling and evaluating the significance of institutional contributions of...

In this paper we have examined the editor effect on publications in institutions with an in-house editor. We found this effect to be general across journals. Using our estimates of the editor effect, we have speculated on the value of such an editing arrangement to the faculty and graduates of the home institution. These estimates might give some clue as to the subsidy an association might extract in negotiations over future editing positions or, alternatively, some benchmark on the return consi...

In this paper we use citational analysis to examine the influence of individuals and disciplines on international business research. We collected citational data over the ten-year period 1984 to 1993 from every issue of the Journal of International Business Studies. We found that management, economics, marketing, and finance disciplines have had significant influence on international business research and identified researchers such as Dunning, Porter, Vernon, Casson, Rugman, and Hofstede as hav...

The contributions of international researchers and institutions to real estate literature for the 1990 to 2006 period are assessed. Both the Asia-Pacific and European regions increase their influence on the top tier of real estate literature. The North American region, while still the dominant source of real estate research, sees its weighted share of publications in the top tier of academic real estate journals decline. Universities from Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, the United Kingdom, Swed...

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...

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...

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...
