International Business Research: Coauthorship Patterns and Quality
Chan, Kam C; Fung, Hung-Gay; Leung, Wai K.
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v19 n3 p293-315 Aug 2008
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 alphabetical ordering of coauthor names in multiauthored articles and article quality--a result that is contrary to some evidence in other disciplines. Finally, international management articles appear to be more frequently cited than articles in other IB research areas. (Contains 4 tables and 3 endnotes.)
