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. …

Statistical power is the probability of accepting the null hypothesis when it is false (type II error). This research note reports the results of a statistical power analysis of international business research published in the Journal of International Business Studies, Management International Review, the Academy of Management Journal, and the Strategic Management Journal from 1990 to 1999. The results show that, although average statistical power is high compared with other disciplines, it is s...

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...

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...

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...

While studies on international corporate social responsibility (CSR) have expanded significantly, their true global nature can be questioned. We systematically review 494 articles in 31 journals over a 31-year period. We assess the embeddedness of CSR in international management/business (IB); analyze the coverage of developing, emerging, and developed countries; map the literature thematically; summarize key findings; discuss main empirical features; and identify unanswered questions, implicati...

Along with the teaching, publications and research output, national and international funding has become essential criterion for benchmarking and performance measurement of the university. To stand and compete with stakeholders, it is essential to carefully monitor the impact of university publication over global research. The role of the library becomes more important to take a lead in monitoring and management of the university publications. A library needs to gather, organize and maintain pub...

Journal rankings are contentious, proliferating and bring about a significant change to research productivity and quality assessment. In this paper, we assess the quality and impact of International Business (IB) journals in relation to each other and management and business journals more broadly. In so doing, we overcome methodological limitations of previous journal rankings by adopting a novel approach that incorporates a worldwide meta-ranking. Its key advantage is the ability to look at the...

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...
