Rising Stars in Family Business Research

March 18, 2018

You don’t need to look far to appreciate the fast-growing impact of family business research. Outstanding contributions like Chua et al.’s (1999) seminal definition paper, Schulze et al.’s (2001) analysis of agency costs in family firms, Anderson and Reeb’s (2001) study of family firm performance, Gomez-Mejia et al.’s (2007) paper on socioemotional wealth, and Miller and Le Breton-Miller’s (2005) best-selling book “Managing for the long run”, just to cite some, played a crucial role for the growth and impact of family business research. But who appear to be the next “rising stars” of the field? Citation patterns are highly unpredictable, but a look at the 10 most cited papers published respectively in the last three years (according to Web of Science) offers a sneak peek into the recent contributions that have the potential to shape the future of our field. -2017- Why Is Family Firms’ Internationalization Unique?
