Cell Phones: A Bibliometric Analysis Related to Business Students
Piotrowski, Chris
College Student Journal, v48 n1 p105-107 Spr 2014
Recent reviews of the literature indicate that the scope of research on cell or mobile phones covers a vast typology (Piotrowski & Kass, 2013). The majority of this research is concentrated in the technology, education, and social sciences fields. However, there is a dearth of bibliometric studies on cell phones related to business. To that end, the current study involved a bibliographic content analysis of the extant literature on cell phones related to business students. A keyword search of the business-oriented database "ABI/Inform" was performed in April, 2013. Of the 114 identified references on the topic of cell phones/business students, 107 were journal articles. A typology of specific subject areas was developed, based on the content or focus of each article. Results were then tallied, across topical categories. In rank order, the major research areas of emphasis were: academic integrity, applications in business education, students' views on phone model upgrades, use in research data collection, marketing, and online instruction. In addition, neglected areas of research were noted.
